  1. 1 In deep fryer or 3-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat to 350°F.

  3. 3 Separate crescent dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Stack 2 rectangles on top of one another. Fold in half widthwise to make tall stack. Repeat with remaining 2 rectangles. Use 1-inch round cutter to cut 14 holes from crescent dough stacks, rolling and rerolling dough as necessary.
