1 package Maple Lodge Farms Original Chicken Wieners
12 oz pizza dough
12 slices marble cheese, (cut 3-inch square, 1/4-inch thick)
Step 1: Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide dough into 12 portions; dust work surface with flour and roll dough into 7- x 1-inch strips (17.5 x 2.5 cm).
Step 2: Skewer each wiener on bamboo skewer; skewer end of one dough strip and roll around each hotdog, creating spiral effect.
Step 3: Place on prepared pan; bake in 400 °F (200 °C) oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until dough is golden and hot dog is heated through. Let cool slightly.
Step 4: Meanwhile, using 2 1/2-inch (6.5 cm) star cookie cutter, cut stars out of cheese slices.
Step 5: Top each skewer with cheese star to resemble a wand. To serve, remove hot dogs and cheese from skewers. Serve with ketchup for dipping.
Tip: You can substitute mozzarella or cheddar for marble cheese if desired.
