What You Need To Make These Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings (Crescent Roll) Recipe?
Pumpkin Puree: When making pumpkin puree make sure to use pure pumpkin puree, not pie mix. It’s important, for the best results as pure pumpkin puree provides an earthy flavor that truly defines this recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Spice: To enhance the flavors of fall and give these dumplings their warmth add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. You can use store-bought. Make your own blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
Cream Cheese: Ensure that the cream cheese is divided into 8 pieces. This step guarantees that each dumpling will have a surprise of melty cream cheese balancing out the sweetness of the pumpkin filling.
Apple Juice (or Water): For a delightful caramelization, during baking and to complement the sweetness of the pumpkin add 3 tablespoons of apple juice (or you can substitute it with water). It’s an ingredient that takes the flavor profile to another level.
Steps To Make Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings (Crescent Roll):
Step 1: To begin preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8-inch baking dish using non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: In a bowl combine the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Use a fork to mix until the mixture becomes crumbly. Set this blend aside for now.
Step 3: Unwrap the crescent rolls. Separate the dough into 8 triangles, with care. Place them on a cutting board or any flat surface.
Step 4: On the end of each triangle add 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree followed by 1 tablespoon of the butter-sugar mixture and a piece of cream cheese.
Step 5: Now it’s time to roll up these dumplings. Start from the end and tuck in the end as you go along. Repeat this process until all crescent dumplings are filled and rolled.
Step 6: Arrange the filled dumplings evenly in the baking dish creating two rows of four. Sprinkle the remaining butter-sugar mixture evenly over them. Then pour apple juice over these treats.
Step 7: Bake, on your oven rack for 27 to 32 minutes. Your dumplings will be ready when they turn into a golden brown color and are cooked perfectly throughout.
Step 8: After they are done take them out of the oven. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy these treats while they are still warm complemented with a scoop of velvety vanilla ice cream or a generous spoonful of whipped cream to add a touch of luxury.
To add a burst of flavor you might want to try sprinkling a small amount of cinnamon or nutmeg over the dumplings right before putting them in the oven. This gentle touch will enhance both the scent and taste taking your Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings to a level of deliciousness, with a delightful hint of spice.
