Ingredients & Variations

DOUGH: Use a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls for this recipe. Each crescent is unrolled and the filling is spooned onto the individual crescent.

FILLING: This recipe calls for pumpkin pie filling, not canned pumpkin so be sure you’re grabbing the right one! Pumpkin pie filling does not have that taste of pumpkin spice that gives fall pumpkin baking its signature taste.

GLAZE: The glaze is made of a simple combination of maple syrup, powdered sugar, and milk. This is drizzled over the crescents once they are removed from the oven.

VARIATIONS: The milk can be substituted for cream for the glaze. To make it milk-free, use a dairy-free alternative.

PRO TIP: Place the glaze in a ziplock bag. Cut off the tip of one corner, and squeeze out the glaze over the crescents.

  1. Wow these look really good! I only have canned & frozen pureed pumpkin I hope i can get the appropriate measurements using that.thanks again!

  2. I made them and they were tasty but very soggy. I ate them after they cooled but they were still soggy. They also were not any where near crescent shaped. Perhaps I used took much filling.3 stars

  3. Wondering – is the egg necessary or can I omit it and swap in soy milk on the glaze to make these vegan friendly… Hmmm =)

  4. My husband loved the pumpkin pies McDonald’s used to have this time of year. The past three years, he has tried every McDonald’s around, and none of them have had them. This was perfect and much tastier. Thank you!

    1. I have only made these as written so I can’t say for sure. I think they would be ok using pumpkin pie filling without egg, the filling just wouldn’t set up as much.

  5. I made this with my 2 yr old and 4 yr old Grandchildren today. They loved it. The ingredients are simple. They thought rolling up the crescents were fun and I let them cover them with the icing however they wanted. They gobbled them up.

  6. I usd reg pumpkin instead of pumpkin pie filling-to cut bk on sugar-just add a little cream If it turns out too thick & adjust your spices-can add a few walnut pieces also
    I think I will also try this with cream cheese mixed with enough powdered sugar -(like making a frosting) only add a tablespoon along with your pumpkin-yum!

  7. is the pumpkin pie FILLING and the Pumpkin pie MIX the same? Didn’t find the P.P. FILLING,just Libbys P. Pie Mix Thanks

  8. Anyone try them after they sit for awhile? I want to make these for a party but it will be about 10 hours from bake till party, do they hold up well?

  9. I never baked crescents, this recipe seems easy to me. All I have to get is pumpkin pie filling. These are so perfect for fall season.
