Pumpkin Errything (and Tobi PROMO)

15 Oct

Up until last Fall, I ASSUMED I hated the taste of pumpkin.  I blame those ugly goopey looking pies!  But, after pumpkin picking and enough years of carving, I decided to puree one. I baked some doughnuts and you know?!?! Pumpkin really doesn’t have that strong of a flavor… so I’ve been LOVING it this year… thank you Dunkin Donuts!!

Here’s a quick and easy recipe I feel like sharing 🙂 It was a HUGE hit…even for my boyfriend who is still anti-pumpkin in his head.

Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls!!!!!!!!!!!

Image

2 packages/cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

4 0z cream cheese, softened

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup canned pumkin (Libby’s)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Unroll crescent rolls to form 4 rectangles placed side by side.  Pinch seams together to form one long rectangle.  Place cream cheese, brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg into a mixer; beat until well combined.  Spread mixture over crescents leaving a 1/2 inch border around edges.  Starting at long end, roll up then cut into 1 inch pieces.  Place around 2 9 inch cake pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  I left the centers open so the rolls form a circle.

2.  Bake for 28-30 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.  Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.  Frost warm rolls with cream cheese frosting recipe below.

Frosting

4 oz softened cream cheese

1/2 Cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin

1.  Mix all ingredients into a large bowl until smooth.  Spread over warm rolls.

I may add more pumpkin than the original recipe calls for… it’s all trial and error!  Keep posted, I have some ideas for the rest of the pumpkin that I’m hoping ends up good enough to share 🙂

I’s been awhile since I gave you a fashion update- check out Tobi.com‘s 2 day sale- everything is 50% from original price with promo code FLIRTYFALL50.  I’m quite torn myself- I found a gorgeous dress but need to stop spending money! Especially because today I was the victim of credit card fraud 😦 I’m hoping TD reimburses me, but the evidence is highly in my favor so I’m sure they will!
