Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls #CookUpIncredible
Right now if you walked in my home, you would find a Pumpkin Caramel Latte candle burning, a Pumpkin Spice Latte beside me, and these glorious Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls on the table.
Holding out on this recipe for over a month has been challenging. I’ve wanted to share my delicious Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls recipe for the longest time. They’re so good and because of my super-duper secret ingredient…so easy.
What’s the secret ingredient? Pillsbury Crescents! Using these bad boys saved me time, my sanity and I had no doubt that they would turn out perfectly. I’ve been on a little bit of a Pillsbury Crescent kick lately, I think my recipes for Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies and Easy Apple Turnovers have shown that. I love using Pillsbury Crescents for baking because they work every time.
To prep for the cinnamon rolls, simply pinch the seams together to make a flat dough.
For the filling, I mixed together the canned pumpkin pie and cream cheese. I added the majority of it to the dough and rolled inwards. Then I cut them into nine pieces, roughly 1″ sections.
They’re amazing fresh out of the oven, but I wanted to make a glaze. Originally, I was going to make a glaze that was similar to my Maple Butter Cinnamon Rolls recipe, but at the last second I was inspired to make something out of the leftover pumpkin cream cheese mixture.
Oh. My. Gosh.

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls
For the rolls
- 1 can of Pillsbury Crescents
- 1/2 cup pumpkin pie filling
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- **use 1/2 cup of the pumpkin cream cheese mixture on the rolls
For the pumpkin spice icing
- Leftover pumpkin pie cream cheese mixture
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Open the can of Pillsbury Crescents and roll out to a rectangle. Pinch all the seams together.
- In a medium bowl add the pumpkin pie filling and cream cheese, beat until smooth.
- Spoon 1/2 cup of the mixture over the crescent rolls and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.
- Roll the dough inwards (where it's longer, not thicker) and cut into 1" pieces. I cut nine pieces.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
For the filling
Take the bowl that you mixed the cream cheese and pumpkin pie filling and add sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Mix together and pour over the cinnamon rolls.
Don't be afraid of the cinnamon rolls drying out. If you bake them for 25 minutes, they will soak up the frosting.
