Here is one of my favorite ways to use crescent rolls!!


Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls

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.


4 oz softened cream cheese

1/2 Cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin (Libby’s)

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


Good Luck!!

    We use them mostly for chicken pockets or pigs in a blanket. I love crescent rolls!

    Jen says:

    My two favorites are to bake them as directed with some chocolate chips tucked inside, and to stuff and roll some chopped walnut, blue cheese and honey inside.
    There are some great suggestions here!

    When I was a kid, we’d roll them up with the caramel sheets used for wrapping apples…I haven’t made these in forever, but just thinking about them makes me smile.

    Oh my gosh! Your pumpkin Cresecent rolls look amazing! I just bought a pack of Crescents yesterday and am so trying this! Thanks for sharing! My favorite crescent recipe… geez, I use them for everything! But my top 3 are:

    Fun! My favorite recipe is to mix cream cheese, powered sugar and almond extract then spread a glob in the middle of the dough triangle. Add a small glob of raspberry jam and roll up. Bake and sprinkle with powered sugar. Mmm…

    I use crescent rolls in some many recipes! Here is one of my favorites:

    Vegetable Pizza

    2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent rolls
    1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 cup sour cream
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    Veggies of choice

    Veggies I used were:
    carrots, shredded
    cucumber, diced
    sweet red bell pepper, diced
    green onions, diced
    radishes, thinly sliced
    black olives
    rainbow slaw mix from the store (broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage, which was all pre-shredded)

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    Roll out crescent rolls onto large non-stick baking sheet. Stretch and flatten to form rectangular shape on sheet.

    Bake 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool.

    In medium size mixing bowl, mix ranch dressing mix, mayonnaise, sour cream, and cream cheese until well blended. Spread the mixture over the cooled crust. Arrange vegetables over the top of the crust.

    Refrigerate for 1 hour.

    CookTeen called them Marshmallow Puffs, we called them Resurrection Rolls and make them Easter morning. So yummy!!

    I can not believe someone else (comment 7) actually makes my taco ring recipe (okay its not mine) – but in my family I’m know for it. Only I press the triangles in crushed tortilla chips before rolling it up and make it spicy. We call it the Ring of Fire!

    I’m not sure what it’s called, but I roll up a cream cheesey chicken mix inside them, bake them, and then serve them in a chicken gravy or soup. Very yummy.

    Debbie says:

    I like to use them as is — they have a great taste, and are so fast and easy to use with a meal.

    Pampered Chef has a lot of yummy recipes using crescent rolls. So any of those ways, or I like to just eat them by themselves!

  32. 132
    Christy says:

    I love to make cream cheese chicken crescent rolls. I mix cream cheese, butter, and shredded chicken together. Then I wrap some of the mixture in a crescent roll, slather some butter on top, and bake. Oh and sometimes I roll crushed crackers on top. It is sooooo good.

  33. 133
    Gena says:

    One of my favorite ways to use these are for a veggie pizza!! So delicious! I’d love to win!

  34. 134

    I make mini cinnamon-buns with them! I melt butter, mix a bunch of sugar & cinnamon… roll it up inside the cresent rolls and spread with melted frosting! yummm!

  35. 135
    Kelly says:

    I lay them out flat, fill with chopped green onion, shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, and one asparagus spear, then roll up and bake according to the directions on the package. Great appetizer and the little asparagus sticking out the sides makes them cute!

  36. 136
    Steph Weis says:

    Browned kielbasa and sharp cheddar wrapped up and baked inside the dough is ssssssoooooooooo yummy! 🙂

  37. 137
    Michelle says:

    I love using the sheet of crescent rolls for making veggie pizza. I love to make the Pioneer Woman’s Mt Dew Apple Dumplings with regular crescents.

  38. 138
    Amy says:

    We love to use them to make Pampered Chef sandwich rings. My favorite sandwich ring fillings are barbecue chicken or garden omelette. They’re wonderful!

  39. 139
    Nicole says:

    Besides using them with dinner, my kids and I like to make cinnamon twists. Tear the crescents like you normally do, but pull them a bit loner and twist them. Melt some butter, dip the uncooked dough in the butter, then a cinnanom & sugar mixture. Cook as directed on the tube, they are very good!!

  40. 140
    Amy says:

    I love to make chicken roll-ups with them (stuff with cream cheese, spices, bell pepper, onion, chicken and whatever else sounds good)! I made them last night and my 3 year-old ate 2 – that’s how delicious they are. (They were the big & flaky, too.)

  41. 141
    Tara says:

    My dad used crescent rolls and added chunk chicken, sour cream and something else for a Christmas appetizer. Guess I should have paid more attention!

    Rachel in NC says:

    I like to roll them around pieces of a chocolate bar and make chocolate croissants!

  45. 145
    Katie says:

    We make chicken pockets. Low fat cream cheese, corn, peas, broccoli, green onions and chicken all stuffed into little squares. Topped with Parmesan cheese, it’s lovely!

    My all time favorite- Sopapilla Cheesecake!

    Our family likes good old hot dogs wrapped in the dough and baked. Simple and yummy!

  49. 149
    Patty Ann says:

    I love to make cinnamon rolls with them! And eat them plain. But I think I want to try those chicken and cheese things everyone else is talking about 🙂

    Carissa says:

    It’s a tie between veggie pizza and little crescent dogs made with little smokies and cheese. I can’t decide!
