Crescent Roll Donuts

When cooking for 2 I usually end up with at least 4 left over crescent rolls that never get eaten.

What to do... make donuts!

Crescent rolls - UNCOOKED
Vegetable/Canola Oil (1/2 Bottle)
Sugar (approximately 1 1/2 cup)
Cinnamon (to taste)

Heat approximately 1/2 a bottle of vegetable/canola oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Put sugar & cinnamon in large bowl... mix evenly.
Test heat with small piece of dough or water.
Tear off small pieces of dough and roll into a loose ball. (2-3 from each triangle)
Place gently in grease.
If your grease is deep enough, the ball will turn itself. Mine wasn't so I made them flat (didn't roll) and flipped them myself. It didn't seem to make a difference. They do puff up and are hard to turn so you can use tongs to bathe grease over the top.
Fry till golden brown.
Remove donuts and place in sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Use tongs to roll around to evenly coat.
