Preheat oven to 200°F.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add shortening and cut into fine granules with a pastry cutter or 2 knives.
Beat egg and milk together in a small bowl. Add to dry ingredients. (The batter should be about the consistency of brownie batter. If it's too thick add 2 to 3 more tablespoons of milk.)
Skewer whole hotdogs or cut hot dogs into 4 or 5 pieces each. Dust each piece with cornstarch. Drop chunks into batter*, coating each piece. Heat oil to about 375°F.
Fry battered hot dogs in hot oil, for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. (When you first put the hotdogs into the oil the batter may start to slide off. If this happens turn them every 10 seconds until batter is firm. Then fry as directed.)
Remove from oil and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes. Leftovers may be frozen, then reheated in the oven. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
*If coating a whole hot dog it is easiest to place batter into a tall glass before coating.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."

"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
