Fall is here and in our area, the signs are all around us. The beautiful colors on the trees, the cool crisp air, the flavors that say fall, and all the traditions that come with it makes this season my favorite.
Every year around Halloween, we join family and friends for a fall fun day. Everyone brings favorite food and drink to share, the kids and grown-ups play games, and we enjoy each other’s company. We’ve been taking Pumpkin Cream Cheese Turnovers to this get together for years. Everyone expects us to bring them and we may or may not be welcome to come if we don’t bring them! Pillsbury Crescents® are a cherished tradition and I love to put my own fresh twist on this classic favorite .
They are easy, delicious and popular. Be sure to make extras!
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Turnovers with Pillsbury Crescents®
- Pillsbury Crescents®
- 1 can pure pumpkin puree
- 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 14 oz of cream cheese (divided)
- 1 egg at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups sugar (divided)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Begin by pressing 1 can of Pillsbury Crescents® onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press all the seams together to create one sheet of crescent dough.
Use a mixer to combine 1 egg, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 8 oz. of cream cheese. Mix until well combined. It may remain lumpy with chunks of cream cheese. Spread the mixture over the uncooked crescent dough.
In another bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup of sugar, and the pumpkin pie spice.
Spread the pumpkin pie mixture over the cream cheese covered crescent dough.
Fold the crescent dough over the filling to meet in the middle. Pinch together the dough to seal the seam and fold the ends under as well.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool on a wire baking rack. After it has cooled for several minutes but is still warm, cut into triangles.
Allow them to finish cooling before drizzling with a cream cheese glaze. To make the cream cheese glaze, combine the remaining sugar with the remaining cream cheese. Thin it with a small amount of whipping cream or water if needed.
These are a perfect treat for any fall get together. Make them for a dessert for a Halloween party or even special breakfast on Thanksgiving morning.
