Pumpkin Pie Twists

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.

Pumpkin Pie Twists


 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!

    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!

    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!
