Mini Crescent Dogs

These are such a cute, and tasty, little appetizer that is very quick to whip up when you need a classic appetizer to add to your repertoire. I love little smokies, but the easy version with BBQ sauce is really the only one I've made at home before. We have a local donut shop that makes these amazing pig in a blanket and I decided to go ahead and make a small batch of them at home with some lil smokes. They were easy to make, and very tasty - the crescent dough gives such a nice, soft pillowy wrap around each one. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce and watch them disappear!
