Sausage Rolls

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
5 Tbs. shortening
2/3 cup milk
1 lb. sausage

Stir together flour, salt and baking powder in large bowl. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Stir in milk. Half the dough and roll out each half to about 1/4 inch thick. Half the sausage (uncooked) and spread out on each half of the dough. Roll the dough/sausage into a roll (log shape). Wrap in wax paper (or saran wrap) and foil; chill. Slice and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes until desired "brown-ness".

A couple of things: they slice better if they are cold; I usually freeze one roll for later; if you don't want to make the dough, you can use a pie crust
