For all you pumpkin spice AND pumpkin pie loving people out there (you know who you are), it's that wonderful time of year again. As you walk through the supermarket, every product imaginable has had pumpkin spice added to it. Why not? It's pure joy.

There's something about the combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, and all spice that is just fall. This year, instead of making a pumpkin pie, I've decided to create a recipe for spring rolls instead. 

I love spring rolls because you can buy the wrappers at almost any supermarket, they are extremely easy to put together, and are the perfect finger food dessert. For a date or just a more bougie approach, you can plate them nicely too.

Here it is... Pumpkin pie spring rolls.
