Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls

I love hot sweet rolls for breakfast on Sunday when there’s no time for “real breakfast food”.   My friend Michelle posted this recipe on Face Book and I had to share it!  

Ingredients:
2 (8-count cans) of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 
4 0z cream cheese, softened
1/4 Cup light brown sugar
1/4 Cup canned pumpkin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On parchment or wax paper, unroll each can of crescent rolls to form 4 rectangles placed side by side. Pinch seams together to form one long rectangle. Place cream cheese, brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg into a mixer; beat until well combined. Spread mixture over your two crescent-roll rectangles, leaving a 1/2 inch border around edges. Starting at long end, roll up then cut into 1 inch pieces. Place around 2 9 inch cake pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake for 30 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.

Frosting:
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 Cup powdered sugar

Directions: Mix all ingredients into a large bowl until smooth. Spread over warm rolls. Serve rolls warm.
