It does not have to be autumn to enjoy these delicious pumpkin cinnamon rolls.

When I came up with this recipe years ago, I didn’t think my whole family would love them so much that they would ask for them year round.

That’s how good these cinnamon rolls are.

So easy  using a tube of crescent rolls 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. My family thinks they are just sweet enough. As they say, perfect! 

I buy pumpkin butter in the grocery store right by the peanut butter and jelly.

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 tube of crescent rolls and the few other ingredients for these cinnamon pumpkin gems.

Bet your family and friends will love them like we do.
