    1      cup           presifted all-purpose flour
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/3  cup           + 1 tablespoon softened butter
      1/4  cup           sour cream
 
 Prepare the filling by combining the cheese, onions and savory.  Mix
 thoroughly.
 
 Prepare the sour cream pastry:  Combine all ingredients and knead lightly.
 Divide dough in half.  Roll each half into a 7 1/2 x 12 1/2 rectangle.
 Cut the dough into 2 1/2-inch squares with a knife or pie fluter.
 
 Place a teaspoon of the cheese-onion filling in the center.  Place a
 cocktail hot dog diagonally in the center of each square, on top of the
 cheese filling.  Wet diagonal corners with a drop of water and press
 together.
 
 Arrange blankets on a well greased baking sheet and brush them with the
 beaten egg.  Bake for 20 minutes at 350° F, or until golden brown.  Serve
 hot.
 
 Do-Ahead Note:
 Prepare the sausage blankets several days in advance and freeze them in a
 moisture-proof container.  At party time, bake the blankets for 10 minutes
 at 350°.
