Pumpkin Crescent Roll Perfect for Christmas Morning

Christmas morning will be here before we know it and I know that many of us celebrate with breakfast or brunch.  I ran across this Pumpkin Crescent roll recipe on Pinterest.  I think these would be great on Christmas morning with a hot cup of coffee.  In the recipe that I found they used Pillsbury crescent rolls, that would be tasty but I thought that this same idea would be even better with my homemade crescent rolls.  I made these and took them to our families Thanksgiving dinner and everyone thought they were delicious!   Pretty sure that you will too!

To make the crescent rolls use this tutorial that I shared a couple months ago on the blog.  Just click here to find it.  Make the dough the exact way that the tutorial shows, then you will need to make filling for the rolls.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling:
1 Can of Pumpkin
1 Package of Cream Cheese
2 TBS of Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

To make the filling start by beating the room temperature cream cheese until it is fluffy.  Next add in the pumpkin, spices and brown sugar.  Beat the filling until it is well mixed.

If you have followed the crescent roll tutorial you will see that you should roll your dough out into a circle.  Once this is done spread your filling evenly across the dough and then cut the dough like seen in the tutorial.

 Proceed by rolling up the crescents and then dust them with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake the rolls at 350 for 15-18 min or until golden brown in color.  If you decide to make these for Christmas you could easily make the rolls days in advance, and rather than baking stick them in the freezer.  Then get them out Christmas morning and let them set for about 1 1/2 hours and thaw, then bake them.

The perfect sweet treat for Christmas morning!

I hope that everyone is getting excited about the quickly coming Christmas!  I encourage each of you to take a look around and seek out someone that may be hurting or lonely during this time of year.  A simple invite to your families Christmas or some warm rolls and heartfelt card can brighten what can be a dark time of year for some.

God Bless
