IMG_14071 can crescent rolls (seamless)
1/4 c. pumpkin butter
3 T. brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Icing
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. powder sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 T. milk (more if you need to thin icing)

Preheat over to 375 degrees. Unroll dough and spread with pumpkin butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll into a log and cut with a serrated knife into 9 slices. Place slices cut side down into a greased 9 x 9 baking dish. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cream together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend. After cooling cinnamon rolls for 5 minutes, cover them with icing.

Notes:

  • I used canned pumpkin and it worked just fine.
  • You can use a regular can of crescent rolls but you just have to get rid of the seams to make it into one giant rectangle. 
  • This is a little too much icing so you might want to cut recipe in half.

1 tube crescent rolls
2 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1 T. pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 T. sugar

Topping
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Cream together pumpkin, cream cheese, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar. Spread 1 1/2 tsp. of filling on each crescent roll and roll up. Sprinkle sugar and pumpkin pie spice on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 13-15 minutes.

Notes:

  • I used spreadable light cream cheese and reduced fat crescent rolls.
  • I would suggest maybe cutting the amount of filling by 1/3 or 1/2. It seemed to be a lot. I had to bake for 15 minutes to fully cook the pumpkin.
  • I would also suggest cutting the amount of topping in half. It was twice as much as I needed. I also would suggest maybe even cutting the amount of pumpkin pie spice if you don’t want to be overwhelmed by it.
