HOW TO MAKE A TURKEY AND STUFFING CRESCENT RING:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Lay out a piece of parchment paper on a large cookie sheet, and spray with non stick spray. Place a small bowl in the center (you’ll use this later for the gravy.) Unroll the cans of crescent rolls. Lay out rolls, overlapping around the base of the bowl forming a sun-shape.
