Let’s talk about Pumpkin Pie.   For years I was not a fan of Pumpkin Pie.  I’m not sure what it was about it but it was always something I passed on at the holidays.   Of course it may have been that most of the pumpkin pies I was eating were store bought.   I’m not sure why people buy them when they are so easy to make.

Fast forward 20 years or so and now I really enjoy pumpkin pie, especially my own!  They are simple to make and don’t use many ingredients at all.  The only thing that stinks about the pie is that it takes a while to cook.  Plus you need to wait for it to cool down before you eat it.

Everything you need to make Pumpkin Pie Crescents

I went on a search for something that had the flavors of pumpkin pie but cooked faster and could be eaten warm.  I came up with these Pumpkin Pie Crescents!  The original recipe called for pumpkin pie filling but as I’ve said, homemade pumpkin pie is so easy to make I just made my own filling from Dixie Crystals sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, and spices.

Then I simply put a bit in a crescent roll, rolled them up, and popped them in the oven.  These crescents smelled like fall and spices while they were cooking.  I couldn’t wait to take them out of the oven.  I actually made these for my book club brunch because while they can certainly be a dessert, they are also the perfect sweet for a fall brunch!

These Pumpkin Pie Crescents would be a fun brunch idea!

The crescents were golden brown when they came out and looked great.  I drizzled them with pumpkin pie spice glaze and enjoyed them warm.  They were really good!  It tasted like pumpkin pie wrapped up in a crispy crescent topped off with sweet pumpkin spice.   Plus they cooked in just 15 minutes so they are much faster to make then pumpkin pie.

My book club seemed to enjoy them as well and I’m pretty sure it got all of us in the mood for fall!
