The *only* bad thing about these tasty rolls is…each one has THREE. HUNDRED. CALORIES.

It is now the season of pumpkin errything so I decided to do a Try It I actually saw on Facebook!

Here’s what you need:

IMG_6522

1 tube crescent rolls

1 c. canned pumpkin puree

3 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature

1 egg

2/3 c. sugar, divided

3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, divided (not pictured; Imma tell you why in a minute)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

pinch of kosher salt

2 tbsp. melted butter

1/2 c. powdered sugar

1 tbsp. milk

 

First, preheat your oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a hand mixer, mix pumpkin, cream cheese, egg, 1/3 c sugar, 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix until the mixture is smooth and then add a pinch of salt. (Note: I didn’t have any pumpkin pie spice, so I made my own! It wasn’t that difficult, actually!)

 

Unroll the crescent rolls and pinch the perforations together to make a solid sheet. (I later saw that Pillsbury actually sells crescent sheets… really would’ve made this easier had I known about that!) Then, cut the crescents into 8 squares.

Scoop a rounded tablespoon of the pumpkin mixture onto each square. Then, pinch up the corners together to create a ball.

In a small bowl, combine the sugar with 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Brush the pumpkin balls with melted butter and roll them in the sugar mixture.

 

Place the balls on your parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Bake about 10-15 minutes. While the balls are baking, it’s time to make the glaze! In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar and milk until smooth, adding more powdered sugar or milk until the desired consistency is reached. You can drizzle the glaze on or use it as a dip!

First, let me say that I am NOT a pumpkin pie person. Like, at all. But these were really good! I think they’d be great for a fall brunch or even dessert at Thanksgiving! My only complaint was that I had a TON of leftover pumpkin mixture. I probably could’ve made 16 more pie bombs. For reals. So if you make these, be sure to buy extra crescents–you’ll need them!

Try It Tuesday

Try It Cooking Badge 3

 

I’m *this close* to finishing my play kitchen revamp! I just need a few more tweaks and I’ll be done! But I couldn’t let a Tuesday go by without trying something for y’all!

 

Tomorrow is the first official day of fall. So you know what that means…

Try It Pumpkin Game of Thrones

 

That’s right, Ned. Its coming.

Today’s first Try It is Fiber One PUMPKIN SPICE Brownies!

Try It Fiber One

All new from FO, this brownie promises lots of fiber and big, punkin’ taste! And boy did it deliver (on both counts, ha!). I really liked this! When I was trying to lose weight (back in 2006, I put on 35 pounds! Eeek!) I would heat up a Fiber One Brownie and dollop some Cool Whip Light on top for dessert! It was filling and tasty! I may do the same with these! Definitely buying them again!

 

The next product was actually suggested by my mom. We saw them at the store while shopping for stuff for the new house (pics to come when the casa isn’t in shambles from moving). They were near the register and said “NEW!”, so Mom had to get them.

Try It Chex Chips

They’re Chex Chips! I loooooove Chex Mix, so I was excited to try them out….until I ate one. The jalapeno has quite a kick to it and the texture just feels…wrong. I don’t know how to explain it. Needless to say, I’ll be walking straight past them next time I’m at Wally World.

 

Have you tried either of these products? What did you think? Are there any new products you’ve tried lately that you love? Share in the comments below!

Try It Tuesday

Tomorrow is the first day of October and fall is in full swing, peeps! And you know what that means: pumpkin flavored novelties are EVERYWHERE! Including my favorite cookies: Oreo.

You know my love for the O-R-E-O is deep. Whenever there is a new flavor, I HAVE to try it. Enter: today’s Try It. And–surprise!–its a twofer!

I LOVE caramel apples. There’s an AWESOME candy shop that has the most amazing caramel apples. However, those things are loaded with crazy amounts of calories and sugar. So when I saw these at Wally World, I was amped up!

This flavor was pretty good! It was a tad on the “too sweet” side, but I still liked it! My sister, however, took one bite and spit it out. She said it tasted like a Jolly Rancher.

 

 

This next one was AH-MAY-ZING!

This flavor was basically like biting into fall, if fall were a cream-filled cookie. A word of caution, though: I drank a glass of milk with this one and it totally ruined the flavor. But, then I tried it with a cup of coffee and it was the PERFECT pairing!

 

Oreo, you’ve done it again my friend.
