Pumpkin Spice Crescent Rolls
Pumpkin Spice Crescent Rolls are a quick and easy fall school snack or brunch item that are little fuss and out of the oven in minutes!
We are the ever anticipated “Preschool Snack Leader” today! This is a very big deal in this house! Yesterday, when I saw my little man carrying the snack bag out to the carpool line, I quietly say to myself… “Oh heck! (might have been a different expletive here…but we’ll just pretend I said “heck”) Do I even have stuff for snack tomorrow? What on earth am I going to send that he hasn’t already had 2 or 3 times already this week?”
Amidst all the muffins, cookies, cupcakes, and other fun, 4 year old friendly fall goodies out there, I still want my little one (and his energetic and animated classmates) to eat festive treats that aren’t going to throw them into a sugar high. You’re welcome teachers! But I don’t have time for a special trip to the store and need to pull something together with what I have. Time to think on the fly….hmm…what to make?
So this morning, in the wee hours between getting the elementary kid on the bus and sending off the middle schooler, I pulled ingredients we all likely have laying around and made Pumpkin Spice Crescent Rolls. Quite simply, it’s a sweetened and spiced pumpkin filling smeared on the inside of a refrigerated crescent roll and baked up to flaky golden deliciousness.
Realizing this could be a terrific brunch or breakfast item to entertain with,
I added a glaze option to the recipe but chose to omit it for the preschool class. The kids are sweet enough….and we all sigh “awe!” Filling took all of 30 seconds to mix. Filling and rolling the dough another 3 minutes, tops! Then they were in the oven and golden 10-12 minutes later. Such a breeze! The boys did a taste test in their jammies, begging for more (with my middle schooler longing for the good ol’ days of preschool snack).
