PUMPKIN PIE TWISTS INGREDIENTS

To make these pumpkin pie twists, you will need:

 CRESCENT ROLL DOUGH: one can (8oz) of original refrigerated crescent roll dough, you can use the buttery flavor too.

 PUMPKIN PUREE: 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, not PUMPKIN PIE FILLING.

 MELTED BUTTER: just 3-4 tablespoons unsalted butter.

 PUMPKIN SPICE: the best part..I used about 3 teaspoons but feel free to use more!

 UNSALTED BUTTER: 1/4 cup but make sure it has softened to room temperature before you make the icing.

 CREAM CHEESE: you only need about 1/4 cup of cream cheese.

 POWDERED SUGAR: 1 cup of powdered sugar.

 VANILLA EXTRACT: just a 1/2 teaspoon.

HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN PIE TWISTS

To make these easy Pumpkin Pie Twists, simply:

PRE-STEP: Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat. Set aside.

STEP 1: Unroll crescent dough and lay down as 4 rectangles on prepared baking sheet.

STEP 2: Spread pumpkin onto 2 of the rectangles.

STEP 3: Place the other 2 rectangles on top of the pumpkin. Press edges together.

STEP 4: Brush melted butter on top of rectangles. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.

STEP 5: Using a pizza cutter, cut both rectangles into 6 strips.

STEP 6: Twist each strip a few times and sprinkle with remaining pumpkin pie spice. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

MAKE CREAM CHEESE ICING:

STEP 7: In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.

STEP 8: Fill a zip-lock bag with cream cheese icing, lock it shut and snip off a corner of the bag. Ice tops of each pumpkin pie twist and enjoy. Simply throw the bag away when finished.

ADDITIONAL BAKING TIPS

PUMPKIN: Again…just a reminder, make sure you use 100% pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.

MAKE YOUR OWN PUMPKIN PIE SPICE: All you need is, 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice and 1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves. Mix the spices together in a small bowl.

CREAM CHEESE ICING: You might have some extra cream cheese icing leftover if you do you can put the leftover icing into a bowl and use it as a dip. Because you can never have enough cream cheese icing!

BAKING TOOLS NEEDED

BAKING SHEET: You will need a large 16×11 inch baking sheet.

SILICONE BAKING MAT OR PARCHMENT PAPER: If you don’t have a silicone baking mat…YOU NEED ONE!

PIZZA CUTTER: Using a pizza cutter makes cutting the dough into strips so much easier.

PLASTIC SANDWICH BAG: I added the cream cheese frosting to a plastic sandwich bag, cut a small hole on one corner of the baggie and drizzled the icing on top of the pumpkin pie twists. Or you can just dunk each twists right into a bowl of icing…yummy!

    I just bought pumpkin spice and am itching to try some new fall-inspired recipes. I’m definitely going to try these – they look so tasty and so easy to make too!

  4. Angie — September 20, 2017 at 7:59 pm

    I just made these. They are excellent! I used pumpkin puree that I’d made a few days ago. It took about 20 minutes to bake; I think that’s because I have a gas oven. They are SOOOOO tasty! I will definitely make these again.

    I made these, but they turned out a big gloppy mess. That was definitely my fault though and I plan to try again because even though they were a gooey mess, they were still delicious! I used organic pumpkin puree because it was the cheapest thing left, so I don’t know if that added to the taste, but they were really good. Thank you for such a fun recipe.

    I love how easy these are to make! I need to try making them!

  7. Elizabeth — October 17, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    These turned out so well… I made the pumpkin spice seasoning (so much cheaper than buying it!) and I must admit, I bought Toaster Strudels and used the icing from those instead of making that. I had to cook for a bit longer but they turned out fantastic and they look picture perfect! Thanks for the recipe!

    Can I make these ahead, keep them refrigerated for several hours, then bake?

    These would be great as dippers in whipped cream! You can’t have pumpkin pie without it!
