Pick up a package of buttery crescent dough and create some delicious pumpkin cinnamon rolls in no time!
Baking pumpkin cinnamon rolls are a cinch with this easy dough shortcut!
If you love homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast but need a faster, low effort version, listen up! The next time you’re at the store, pick up a crescent roll dough sheet and create some delicious pumpkin cinnamon rolls with only about 10 minutes of prep time.
The result is a warm, caramelized cinnamon roll with delicious sweet pumpkin spice filling that is perfect for fall. The crescent roll is flaky and buttery, and the cream cheese drizzle is a delicious addition. Your family will be so impressed, but shhhh… don’t let them know how easy this was! 😄
Tips for making pumpkin cinnamon rolls using crescent roll dough:
- Look for the sheet of Pilsbury crescent dough next to the Pilsbury crescent rolls (the ones that are scored into triangles), as they will be the easiest to use. You can use the actual crescent rolls, just be sure to roll it out on a cutting board into one straight rectangle.
- Be sure to use pumpkin purée for this idea as it has a bit thicker consistency. I tried using pumpkin pie filling at first for this recipe, but it was much thinner and watery so it didn’t work out quite as well as the purée.
- Before starting, powder your cutting board or surface with a little flour so the dough won’t stick. You could also prep it with a piece of parchment paper.

Here’s what my teammate Jenna thought of these pumpkin cinnamon rolls:
“This is officially the best way to eat cinnamon rolls…stuffed with pumpkin! I have been fully indulging in all things pumpkin, and this is at the top of the list! And the best part? This recipe SUPER easy to throw together! I usually make a from-scratch pumpkin pie on the nights we carve pumpkins, but tonight I threw this together quickly and it was a hit.
“I also loved the frosting so much. The kids were eating it by the spoonfuls! Just like the rolls, it was so quick to throw together and made these pumpkin cinnamon rolls that much more amazing! Two thumbs way up!”
