Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls


Good Monday morning!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Nordicware giveaway last week, all of your pumpkin favorite recipes were making me hungry! Congratulations to the random picked commenter…..#336 Barbara Bakes. I’ll be emailing you this morning to get some info. Congrats Barbara!

I had such a great weekend. I got to fly BY MYSELF to AZ so I could visit my sister and her new Baby Girl! My husband was such a good sport to run around with the boys all weekend while I played with some of my most favorite nieces and nephews. Went by too fast, but I am so grateful I got to spend time with them 🙂

Ok, onto more pumpkin recipes!!


I’m so excited to share these fun little sweet rolls that are jam packed with warm fall flavors of pumpkin and spice. As my oldest son was sampling one, he said “Mmmm this is like my 3rd favorite food ever!” Glad to hear it was beat out by 2 of his favorite milk shakes from the Shake Shack.

Another simple recipe that’s perfect for brunch or anytime of day for that matter. The cream cheese frosting on top is good enough to keep on hand for dipping fruit or crackers. We’re going nuts for it.

Hope you all will enjoy, see you soon!



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.


Come back soon for more cookin’!

    Yum to the rolls.
    Even more YAY to “mom” trips–alone! Heaven! I just recently got to do that for the Food BlogHer–best part might have just been that I got to travel alone! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    OMG these look amazing. I really wish I had some now. I can get all that here too ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just stopped by to tell your blog happy 2nd birthday mine is tomorrow and I know we started them at the same time ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great work…

    Wow, those look great. At 8 pm last night my hubby was digging around looking for something to make cinnamon rolls out of.

    I bet he would have loved these.

    I am lovin’ all of these delicious pumpkin recipes! These breakfast rolls look over the top good.

    Glad you had a nice visit to AZ. Ahhh, the luxury of flying alone. It’s been a few years since my last solo flight. It’s not so much the flying alone that I treasure, but passing through security without crashing down a stroller and dealing with tiny pairs of shoes. : )

    Oh my good gracious..those look absolutely delicious!!!! I’m writing this recipe down right now and I’m going to try it as soon as I can! I have a dessert that I make listed on my blog called Cream Cheese Danish. It uses the crescent rolls too. Aren’t those the most handy little rolls?

  8. Stephanie Banner

    Thank you so much for all the pumpkin recipes!! Each season, I buy a pumpkin and bake it, then puree the flesh and freeze it. We enjoy pumpkin recipes all Fall long! I made the mini cheesecakes yesterday and printed off the tart to make soon. These rolls look devine! If you wanted them to taste more homemade, you could buy the Rhodes bread dough and roll a portion out into a rectangle, then proceed as follows with the recipe. Keep up the plethora of pumpkin recipes!!

    I love the idea of making cinnamon rolls but with pumpkin and cream cheese in the filling! That’s so awesome, it looks delicious.

  10. Barbara Bakes

    Thanks for the fabulous giveaway! I can’t wait to get my pans and get baking! These rolls sound so easy and delicious!

  11. Kimm Geria

  12. Becky S.

    Oh man oh man these look good! I am sitting here hungry trying to get motivated to make some breakfast and I check your blog and Bam!! Pumpkin breakfast rolls!?!?! Yummy! I am going to make these right now!!!

  13. Rhonda

    I could really use one of these right now, looks delicious. And so easy.

    And here in Texas the Libby’s spot at Kroger had a notice too. Really weird that pumpkin would be in short supply. But other stores don’t seem to have this problem. I will have to stock up when I can for the holidays.

  14. Beth

    I have a question…I live in ATL, GA and this year we are having a shortage of Libbys! I heard they had a really bad crop last year- is this true everywhere?

    Literally every grocery store I have gone to is not stocking it this fall. It’s so depressing….

    1. melissa

      Hi Beth,
      I live in Atlanta too, and have been searching for pumpkin. I have found it at Target and at Kroger. I’ve been checking every time I go to a store, and have lucked out a few times. Good luck!

  15. Niki

    These look fantastic!!! I have been discovering the wonders to pumpkin lately… mostly b/c I discovered that you don’t have to use “traditional” pumpkin pie spice every time you bake w/ it! I am not a fan of the majority of the spices people generally use in pumpkin pie, so I always moved away from pumpkin recipes. now I am a pumpkin fanatic. These are def going on the list.

  16. Jenny Matlock

    Well darn girl! Why didn’t I dream of these!!!! ???? ACCCCKKKK!!!!! Looks delicious.

  17. Meghan

    These looks so gooey and delicious! Love all of your pumpkin recipes lately – I can’t get enough!

  18. Debbie K

    Congratulations to the lucky winner and thank you for the yummy recipe. Can’t wait to try it!


  19. Pam

    Oh yum! I’m known for my homemade rolls…I’m definitely going to use this spread for my filling and send a big batch to my husband’s office. I’m so glad you have this “thing” for all these wonderful treats that you share with us….our employees are thankful also. :o)

    I was just wondering what in the world would I serve to my guests from America when they recover from their jetlag in the morning. Now I know. Thanks for the great recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚
