Quick & Easy Pumpkin Spice Sweet Rolls

Stop what you are doing and make these Quick Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls NOW! OMG! These things are SO good! Bursting with fall flavor. We devoured the whole pan in about 5 minutes flat. No joke! They are ridiculously good. 

Not only are these sweet rolls delicious, but they are also effortless to make. I had the rolls ready to go into the oven before it had fully preheated. The key to the quick prep time is using a can of refrigerated french bread dough. No stand mixer or rising is required! Whip up a batch today!

What is Pumpkin Pie Spice?

Pumpkin Pie Spice is a blend of four spices – cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and allspice. You can find it in the spice aisle at the grocery store. If you don’t have any on hand, you can make your own with ½ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp ginger, ¼ tsp nutmeg, ¼ tsp allspice.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

These sweet rolls are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a bowl, combine softened cream cheese, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Unroll a can of french bread dough at the seam and form into a rectangle. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the surface of the dough, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Sprinkle granulated sugar over cream cheese. Starting with the long edge, roll the dough into a log. Pinch the edges to seal. Using a serrated knife, slice the cinnamon roll dough into 12 rolls. Place rolls cut side down into a 9-inch cake pan or baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown. 

In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and milk. Pour the glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls.
