Place frankfurters in rows of three down center of pastry; bring sides of dough together over frankfurters and press to seal; press ends of dough to seal. Place seam side down, on an ungreased baking pan. Perforate top of crust with the tines of a fork; brush with evaporated milk; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 15 to 20 minutes – until golden brown.

I actually made this recipe for my long-suffering husband Dave and the results were posted on my Open Salon blog. This is a family favourite, particularly amongst the Labretards.
