 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
      1/4  teaspoon      baking soda
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    3      tablespoons   toasted wheat germ
      1/4  cup           chilled vegetable shortening
      1/3  cup           buttermilk or plain yogurt
    1      large         egg yolk
   10                    frankfurters -- ends trimmed and
                         -- frankfurters
                         -- halved crosswise
 
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and grease a large baking sheet.
 
 In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and
 wheat germ. Blend in shortening with a pastry blender or your
 fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. In a small bowl whisk
 together buttermilk or yogurt and yolk and stir into flour mixture,
 stirring until mixture just forms a moist dough.
 
 Knead dough 4 times on a floured surface and with a floured rolling
 pin roll out into a 12-inch square. Cut dough into 1 1/2-inch-wide
 strips and roll a strip around middle of a frankfurter until dough
 just overlaps. Cut pig-in-blanket free from strip and make 19 more
 pigs-in-blankets in same manner, arranging them, seam side down, as
 they are made on prepared baking sheet. Pigs-in-blankets may be
 prepared up to this point 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.
 
 Bake pigs-in-blankets in upper third of oven until pale golden, about
 15 minutes.
 
 Yield: 20 pigs-in-blankets
