I love the cool crisp fall!  I can finally pull out the cozy throw-blankets, turn on the fire and enjoy a sweet bite to eat  with my cup of morning coffee.  (If you haven’t tried my Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake, you owe it to yourself to give it a try!  It is a made-from-scratch cake though, and is a little labor-intensive.)  For a quick and easy breakfast sweet, make these pumpkin spice crescent rolls instead.

pumpkin spice crescent rollsThe pumpkin breakfast sweet rolls pull together so quickly because you use canned pumpkin, apricot jam (I like the chunky kind), pumpkin pie spice, canned crescent rolls (I use Pillsbury), and Duncan Hines Vanilla Frosting.  (These are all vegan at the time of this writing but do check your labels and make sure that ingredients haven’t changed.)

While your oven is preheating, mix together just two pumpkin spice crescent rolltablespoons each of canned pumpkin (solid pack) apricot jam, along with 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
