De-Pudged Pigs in a Blanket

8 fat-free or nearly fat-free hot dogs (40 to 50 calories each)
1 can (8 servings) Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls refrigerated dough

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut each dog into 4 even pieces.

Take 1 of the 8 triangle-shaped portions of the dough and stretch or roll it out slightly, making it into a larger triangle. Then cut this piece of dough into 4 long, narrow triangles. Beginning at the base of each of these triangles, roll 1 hot dog piece up in each triangle until the point of the triangle wraps around the center. Place your blanketed pigs on a large, ungreased baking pan and repeat entire process 7 more times with remaining dough and hot dog pieces. Be sure to evenly space them, as the dough will expand while baking.
Place pan in the oven and cook for about 12 minutes, until dough appears slightly browned and crip.
Makes 8 servings.

NOTE: I fixed these for my daughter and she really liked them. I must say, they were pretty good. It would be a good finger food for a party.
