  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • Insert 12-inch wooden skewer into one end of each hot dog, extending skewer 1-1/2 inches beyond opposite end of hot dog.
  • Unroll dough; press perforations together to seal. Cut dough crosswise into 10 strips. Starting at bottom of each hot dog, carefully wrap 1 dough strip, in spiral design, around hot dog. Place, seam sides down, on parchment-covered baking sheet.
  • Bake 13 to 16 min. or until wraps are golden brown. Cool slightly. Meanwhile, cut cheese horizontally in half to make 2 slices, each about 1/4 inch thick. Use 1-1/4-inch cookie cutter to cut star-shaped piece out of each cheese piece. Reserve trimmings for another use.
  • Thread 1 cheese star onto end of each skewer. Serve with ketchup and mustard.


Prepare using Cracker Barrel Medium Cheddar Cheese.
