Ingredients

1 c
whole-wheat pasrty flour
1 c
all-purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking soda
2 Tbsp
cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 c
reduce fat cream cheese
2/3 c
lowfat buttermilk
1
14-oz package smoked mini turkey sausages
1 large
egg
1 tsp
water
1 tsp
poppy seed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
2
Add flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a food processor. Pulse for 1 second five times. Add butter and pulse for 1 second eight times. Add cream cheese, turn on processor, and pour in buttermilk through the feed tube. Continue processing for 10 to 20 seconds or until mixed
3
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and gather into a ball. Divide into two equal pieces and flatten into disks; wrap one disk in plastic and chill. (Both disks may be refrigerated for up to a day; let rest for 20 minutes at room temperature before rolling.) Lightly flour remaining disk and roll to a 1/4-inch thickness.
4
Cut dough into 12 rectangles, each about 3 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches, then cut each rectangle in half diagonally to form 24 triangles. Place sausages on the short side of each triangle opposite the tip, roll up, and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients (you may have extra dough).
5
In a small bowl, beat egg and water. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat dough with egg mixture; sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake for about 12 to 14 minutes, switching positions of baking sheets halfway through. Cool for 5 minutes; serve with mustard, if desired.
