Shortcut Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls – You’ll love making these easy-peasy pumpkin cinnamon rolls anytime of year. It’s a fast and simple way to enjoy a most delicious dessert. Bake a batch soon and taste the deliciousness!
When I came up with this recipe years ago, I didn’t think my whole family would love them so much that they ask for them year round. That’s how good these beauties are. So easy using crescent roll and a few pantry ingredients. The frosting just brings these over the top for the perfect balance of sweetness. I used pumpkin butter in this recipe. It’s sweeter than canned pumpkin but, you can always use canned pumpkin. I would just suggest adding some sugar and cinnamon to the pumpkin. Taste and see if it’s sweet for your liking. I buy pumpkin butter in the grocery store right by the peanut butter and jelly. But, I also buy a jar or two online right here. I happen to love this brand. Pumpkin butter is also so delicious on toast or add a dollop to your yogurt. Next time you’re at the market, don’t forget to grab a roll of crescent rolls and the few other ingredients for these gems. Bet your family and friends will love them like we do.
