Pumpkin-Filled Crescent Rolls
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch
Nice addition to my holiday brunch options, they are easy to make and taste really good. I do think I will add a powdered sugar glaze the next time I make them to ramp them up a little bit more.
these are fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not gonna lie... I was skeptical that crescent rolls with a pumpkin filling would be as good as everyone was saying. BUT, I wanted to make some type of special roll for Thanksgiving, since my little boys are pretty picky, but they always love the breads I make, so that's why I gave these a chance. They were de-LISH! I will admit that these were the ugliest crescents I've ever shaped. The dough was so soft. I only added 3 3/4 cups flour, so I will definitely add the whole 4 cups next time. I just wasn't sure, since I knew this was supposed to be a soft dough. Also, I had a little more success rolling out the dough when it came straight from the fridge. I found that letting it sit for an hour at room temp made the dough too difficult to work with... at least for me. Maybe having more flour in the dough next time will make that better. I also followed the suggestions of some others who reviewed this recipe by rolling the dough onto a pastry board sprinkled with powdered sugar. I liked that. The dough was very tender and had an excellent flavor. I also made a second filling--a cranberry cream cheese one. I mixed together 4 oz of softened cream cheese, 2 Tbsp of white sugar, and 1/4 cup dried cranberries that I re-hydrated for 5 minutes by pouring 1 1/2 cups of boiling water over them. That filled about 13 of the crescents. I liked that cream cheese filling even better than the pumpkin, but both made very yummy rolls. I will be making these again.
This recipe was wonderful! My picky 6 year old ate 2 and was asking for more!
Yum, yum and YUM again. This recipe was great and can easily be changed to accomindate so many different tastes. Even my picky eater enjoyed these little bites of heaven. I really liked the comment about rolling the dough out with powdered sugar and using peach filling. Thanks for sharing!

This is similar to a recipe that I got from an elderly neighbor many years ago (now I'M the elderly neighbor). Try rolling the dough out with powdered sugar instead of flour and with peach jam for the filling. We love them!!!
It is so EASY to make your own pumpkin, and is much better than that canned stuff! Wash and dry a pumpkin, slice in half (leave the seeds & stuff inslde). Rub cut sides with shortening, place cut side down on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until tender (about 1/2 hour for small pumpkin, would take longer for big one). Remove seeds (could toast them if you want). Puree pumpkin pulp in food processor. We prepare several pumpkins at a time and then freeze until ready to use. Yummy!
I have not made this recipe. I just wanted to know how many small pkgs of yeast would I need to buy?
These are incredible! My mouth waters just thinking about them.
