Easy Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Author: Crissy Page


  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • ¼ cup of canned pumpkin pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • Splash of almond milk or regular milk!


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Start by unrolling the dough on a piece of parchment paper and then smoothing it out. I pushed the cut lines back together so there would be one smooth piece.
  • Spread the pumpkin puree over the dough sheet and then sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Tightly roll the dough from one end to the other until you have a tight and neat log.
  • Cut with a knife or use floss to slice the dough log into discs.  Mine were all different sizes and still came out great.
  • Bake for about 9-14 minutes depending on how hot your oven is and how browned you prefer for them to be.
  • While they are cooling you can mix up the glaze.  Simply add the coconut oil (you can warm/melt it in the microwave very quickly) in with the confectioners sugar and then a tiny bit of almond milk at a time until you have a smooth and thick glaze.  Drizzle over the cinnamon rolls when they have cooled a bit.

    Do you use a cookie sheet or a 9 x 13 dish or what do you bake these in/on?

  5. I Love this! I have made these like 6 times already and everyone loves it. Its so fast and easy to make! Its just enough sweetness for the fall and the pumpkin give it the best flavor. Thanks for the Recipe

  6. This looks really great. The dough part is always tricky, and time consuming, so to see crescent dough is a wonderful idea. Next time the dough is on sale, I’m making this.

    I really don’t know why you got the comment that the recipie wasn’t clean, considering it wasn’t advertised as such. To each their own.

  7. looks very yummy! but the dough is not clean at all
