Pumpkin-filled crescent rolls

Sam’s Perfect Crescent Rolls

I’ve had a tube of crescent rolls in the fridge for a while now, and since we’re all feeling some pumpkin pie withdrawal, I thought this would be a quick fix for our craving.  Sam and I got up early this morning and had these in the oven in a few minutes.  I gotta say that I felt pretty inept at the whole crescent rolling thing.  My crescents looked like deformed logs, and Sam’s were perfect.  He wanted to make sure you knew that.  {smile}

Claudia’s interpretation of our breakfast.

Recipe:  Pumpkin-Filled Crescent Rolls

(from Taste of Home)

2 tubes of crescent rolls

3/4 pureed pumpkin

1/3 c. granulated sugar

1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine pumpkin, sugar, and spice in a small bowl.  Mix well.  Unroll crescent rolls and place a heaping teaspoonful of pumpkin mixture on each.  Roll up and shape into a crescent.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden.

    I have a Tupperware of leftover pumpkin AND crescent rolls in the refrigerator as we speak. I needed this recipe today! Thanks!

    What a fast and delicious treat! I’ve kept extra cans of pumpkin on hand ever since last year’s shortage so this is just asking to be made.

    OMG. YUM. That’s all I can say… drooling on keyboard.

    What a great idea! My husband would eat 10 of these for breakfast if I let him. I love the photo with the toy cars – adorable!

    Anything in a crescent roll is delicious! Great idea. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Do you go downtown DC during the Holidays, one day we will have to meet!

    Robin – We had a great Thanksgiving. Hope you did too! We only do DC over the summer since we walk all over, but I really want to see the White House before Christmas sometime. If I had a bucket list, it’d be on it. And it would be fun to meet!

    Monica – Haha! I thought the same thing, but too late! Claudia was distracting me with wanting to do her own photo shoot and I just never thought of it again until I posted. :)

    Pumpkin has to be one of the most versatile ingredients out there. Cheers!

    These sound yummy and easy!! I love crescent rolls :)

    I love crescent roll dough! You can stuff it with anything. We pretty much stick to bananas & (DUH! :)), dulce de leche, caramel, or cinnamon sugar. It’s so versatile.

    So modest. Sam’s not cocky at all. lol, I have a coupla like him at home. :)

    Brilliant use of crescent rolls and pumpkin! Never would have thought to do that.

    OMG this sounds wonderfully delicious. As I am sure you’ve noticed, my husband is not a huge fan of pumpkin, but that won’t stop me from making this if I find the right opportunity. Great idea! (and I LOVE the little snowflakes falling when I look at your blog, how did you DO that?!?)

    I love a “quickie” (sorry :), I mean “recipe” of course) and this is an imaginative way to fill crescent rolls. Great header, too. It’s really kind of soothing me here at work (where I shouldn’t be reading blogs, but oh well.)

    This is a great use of pumpkin! I’m nowhere near being over my pumpkin cravings yet this fall.

    it’s hard to get the crescent shape just right, but in the end, who cares? they’re delicious, and i love this idea for a filling. nice work.

    I love how quickly these come together and they sound delish! Love the cars in the picture. :)

    Brilliant idea! I love it.

    EZ Recipes – Ha! I have no idea how the snowflakes started. December arrived, and here they are. Nothing I did though. : )

    Ummm…I think your page is snowing. LOL! I love it! Now why didn’t I think of stuffing crescent rolls with pumpkin?? I’ll have to try it now!

    I heart these crescent rolls but never thought of filling them up with pumpkin. What a great (and delicious) idea.
