The last staple dessert found at any Thanksgiving meal is pumpkin pie, but even after eating way too much of it, Thanksgiving will not be the last of the pumpkin desserts. Put a twist on the fall-favorite pumpkin flavor by combining cinnamon with a pumpkin pie filling. This will make the flavors pop and bring out a side of the pumpkin pie that you’ve never seen before. Using Pillsbury crescent dough makes this recipe super easy and fun to make. They can be eaten as dessert or even for breakfast.
