  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray large unrimmed cookie sheet with baking spray with flour. Unroll dough on work surface. (If using crescent rolls, unroll dough on work surface and separate into 2 large rectangles. Overlap long sides to form 13x7-inch rectangle; firmly press edges and perforations to seal.)
  • 2
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and oil uncovered on High 2 minutes, stirring once, until mixture can be stirred smooth. Spread evenly on dough.
  • 3
    Starting with 1 long side of rectangle, roll up; pinch edge to seal.
  • 4
    With serrated knife, cut into 12 slices, wiping knife between cuts. Arrange slices on cookie sheet, seam side down, in a 7-inch diameter circle, leaning each slice against the previous one. Tuck last one under the first to complete the ring.
  • 5
    Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Using a large, flat spatula or fish turner, tip pan and slide the ring onto serving platter.
  • 6
    Meanwhile, in 4-quart saucepan, mix sugar, raspberries and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Break up berries with spatula or wooden spoon if frozen together. Continue to cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until berries burst and mixture begins to boil vigorously. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in a small bowl. Stir into boiling mixture and continue to cook 2 minutes, or until mixture is very thick. Strain sauce through fine mesh strainer. Spoon 1/4 cup sauce over warm crescent ring. Serve with remaining sauce.

Expert Tips

  • You can make the sauce up to a day ahead. Just store in a microwavable container, and microwave uncovered on High 60 to 90 seconds or until warm before pouring over the crescent ring.
  • Don't feel like straining? Just spoon the sauce straight from the pan over the finished ring. You won't get the same smooth sauce, but you'll get a big fiber boost!
  • Parchment makes a nice stand-in for the baking spray. Just pick up the parchment after baking and slide the ring off the paper onto a serving platter.
