Pumpkin Pie Twists
Fall has arrived and that means that some of my favorite holiday flavors are hereI love all things about fall– the changing colors of the trees, cozying up by the fire on a cool fall evening, and anything pumpkin! ♥
Speaking of pumpkin, these Pumpkin Pie Twists are my new favorite fall treat, and I can’t wait to make them for my family on Thanksgiving this year. And to keep things super simple, these Pumpkin Pie Twists only have three ingredients; Pillsbury Crescents®, pure pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice that I got from my favorite store, Wal-Mart.
Pillsbury Crescents® are always a part of our Thanksgiving dinner and I know this year won’t disappoint with these delicious Pumpkin Pie Twists.
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✓ PUMPKIN: 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!
