As a busy mom, I love recipes that use a workaround to save me time. You could create your own pastry dough and blend up your own pumpkin filling but ain’t nobody got time for that!

I do love to bake though so this feels like I’m baking my family breakfast but I only have to listen to my toddler ask if breakfast is ready for half as long!

When your family is eating these yummy cinnamon rolls they won’t care that they’re only semi-homemade.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll ingredients

All it takes to make these is a few ingredients. Don’t forget to add the ingredients for the cream cheese icing to your shopping list as well.

How to make your cinnamon rolls

1 – Before you get started preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 baking pan. Make sure you also have the butter and cream cheese for the icing pulled out to soften.

2 – Open your crescent dough and carefully roll it out flat.

Be sure to buy the Pillsbury crescent dough sheet, not the kind for individual rolls. If you accidentally get the wrong kind try to mush the perforation together a bit before you start but it should still work ok.

3 – Gently spread the pumpkin butter over the surface creating a thin layer.

4 – Sprinkle the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice over top of the pumpkin butter.

5 – Starting on the shorter side slowly roll the dough into a long log or tube.

6 – Using a serrated knife, the kind you use for bread, gently slice into 10 slices and place in the baking dish.

Don’t forget the cream cheese frosting!

For the cream cheese frosting you’ll need the following:

  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 tbsp milk 

In a bowl combine the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk and cream together. If it’s too thick add a bit more milk to thin it out.

Spread or drizzle it over the warm pumpkin cinnamon rolls and you’re ready to eat!
