Pumpkin Cream Cheese Crescents

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

About two weeks ago I made a recipe that did NOT call for the entire can of pumpkin puree.  I put the extra pumpkin puree into a small container and placed it on a shelf in the back of the refrigerator.  A few days later I remembered that container and decided to try something new.  I combined the pumpkin puree with some cream cheese and sugar and rolled the yumminess up in some crescents and had a nice little treat...

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Crescents

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese; softened
  • 2 TBS. sugar or Splenda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Cinnamon/sugar mixture
  • 1 egg; beaten
  • 1 container refrigerator crescent rolls


In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree with the softened cream cheese.  
Add the sugar and pumpkin pie spice.  
Unroll the refrigerator crescent rolls and separate each one.  
Spread about 1 TBS of the pumpkin puree/cream cheese mixture on each crescent roll.  
Beginning at the bigger end, roll up the crescent rolls and place on a baking tray that has been lined with parchment paper. 
Brush each crescent roll with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar mixture.  
Bake in  425 degree oven for 9 - 10 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown.  
Let cool slightly before enjoying.

AND I had extra pumpkin/cream cheese filling leftover!  I just enjoyed that as a special treat with a spoon!  But you could use TWO tubes of crescent rolls.  

Enjoy your day!
