Nothing says fall like a pumpkin dessert!
These deliciously spiced Pumpkin Crescent Rolls are the perfect way to bring a touch of autumn to your table.
Filled with fragrant cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice, these sweet treats are sure to tantalize your taste buds.
With just a few simple steps, you can have a warm, gooey, and perfectly spiced pumpkin dessert in no time.
What is Pumpkin Pie Spice?
Pumpkin pie spice is a heavenly blend of warm, aromatic spices that perfectly complement the rich flavor of pumpkin. It typically includes cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and sometimes ginger or allspice.
When added to your pumpkin crescent rolls, it elevates the dessert to a whole new level of deliciousness.
So, why should you use pumpkin pie spice in your crescent rolls? Well, it’s all about the flavor. The combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves creates a harmonious symphony of autumnal goodness.
These spices not only enhance the taste of the pumpkin, but they also add depth and complexity to the overall flavor profile.
Imagine taking a bite of your warm, freshly baked crescent roll and being greeted by the comforting notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s like a cozy hug for your taste buds.
Additionally, using pumpkin pie spice in your crescent rolls allows for a more convenient and consistent flavor.
Instead of measuring out individual spices, you can simply reach for a jar of pumpkin pie spice and have all the necessary flavors in one convenient blend. It saves time and ensures that each bite of your crescent roll is perfectly spiced.
How I Lightened up This Dessert
Using reduced-fat crescent rolls helped to lower the WW points. They are only 3 points each compared to the regular crescent rolls which are 4 points.
Honestly, I can’t even taste a difference.
Since pumpkin is 0 points, the only other points in this recipe come from the granulated Splenda.
Most pumpkin pie recipes use brown sugar, but I wanted to cut back on the points. Between the pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and vanilla, you won’t miss the brown sugar.

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls:
If you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert recipe, I’ve got you covered!
I first added the pumpkin, Splenda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to a medium bowl. Mix it together until it is combined.
Set the bowl aside, then get your crescent roll dough ready. Unroll the dough and break it apart along the perforated lines.
Add the crescent roll dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. This is the silicone mat I used:
Once the crescent roll dough is on the baking sheet, you want to spread the pumpkin mixture over the dough.
Don’t add too much pumpkin to the dough or it will ooze out.
After all of the pumpkin has been added, you want to roll the crescent rolls, starting with the large edge of the triangle.
Bake at 375 degrees F. for 9-11 minutes, or until the crescent rolls are golden.
Let the crescent rolls cool slightly, then serve.
I sprinkled some powdered sugar over mine. Fat-free whipped cream would be delicious too!
