Take-out Tuesday, Pumpkin Walnut Spirals

These little sweet & savory bites are perfect

for any occasion this Fall season

  Breakfast, Brunch, luncheon, dinner, dessert…

They are light, not too sweet, delicious

and small enough not to be sinful~

  These rolls would be great for Thanksgiving breakfast

The best part about these spiral bites of nutty pumpkin

is that they are super quick to make with crescent roll dough,

Pumpkin Pie filling, cream cheese, butter, sugar and nuts

Roll out the dough into 1 large rectangle

and pinch the perforations to seal if necessary

Spread evenly with a thin layer of cream cheese

Sprinkle sugar lightly over cream cheese,

You can use white or brown sugar

Then spread a thin layer of Pumpkin Pie Filling over dough

Starting with one of the long sides, carefully roll the dough into a log

You will end up with a big gooey seam on top

This is where I wished I had done this on a piece of parchment paper,


so I could put in it the fridge to chill

I got out baking mat and eased the roll onto it

Place the rolled dough into the freezer for 10 minutes

or cover and refrigerate for several hours,

to make it easier to handle,

then slice the log into 16 pieces

Begin at the center and cut in half

  Then cut the halves into 1/4s and then cut the 1/4s in half again

and you will have 16 even spiral slices

Place the slices in a greased glass pie pan, cut side down

Sprinkle with chopped walnuts

then sprinkle lightly with brown sugar

Cut 2 Tablespoons of butter into 16 pieces

and place one piece on top of each roll

The butter imparts a smooth flavor finish

Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes,

but start checking them near the end to see if they’re done

They need to get pretty brown to insure the insides get cooked


These spirals are perfect for any fall gathering or for family breakfasts. Easy to make with crescent roll dough and pumpkin pie filling. They are great for Thanksgiving too

    These sound so good. Now what will you do with the extra pie filling? BTW, I had some pumpkin pie ice cream at Braums last night. I was skeptical, but it was actually delicious if you can get past the idea of cold ice cream on a cold evening.🤣🍦
