Pumpkin Cheesecake Bundles

There are a lot of ideas I conjure up on my own for this blog, but the majority are adapted(ran with) from other amazingly creative recipes. This is one of those times. I love me some Pinterest...ok, ok. More so I am addicted, but I can't help it. it's not my fault it's so fantastic! and one of the recipes I had seen so many times was for a sopapilla cheesecake, the picture that kept me drooling was originally from Real Mom Kitchen, but I discovered it via My Yellow Umbrella...both of which are fabulous blogs that I recommend you check out! 

and so I made it, and while it was quite tasty, mine looked no where near as utterly mouth drooling watering as that one did and I admit, I try not to serve ugly food. Sometimes while doing this blog, that's the one thing I feel holds me back...some of the pictures people put on their blogs blows my mind and I get nervous and feel inadequate...then I get over and blog anyways. haha but, I did find an answer to my problem, I just made individual "bundles" and voila, problem solved. or as solved as I'm gonna get it. My food tastes good, and that's as good as it's gonna get;)




Ingredients
2 packages crescent rolls
8 oz pumpkin cream cheese, softened(if you can't find it, check my notes section)
1 package cheesecake pudding mix, dry
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp butter, melted
cinnamon sugar 
pumpkin pie spice(optional)

Directions
unroll crescent rolls, separate and lay flat on pan. Mix together cream cheese, pudding mix and heavy whipping cream till stiff peaks appear. Place a tbsp of the pumpkin mixture and place on the "fat" end of the crescent roll, roll up as you normally would. Brush the tops w/butter and the cinnamon sugar and PP spice. Bake as directed. let cool for about 15 min and enjoy.

Notes***If you can't find pumpkin cream cheese, there are a few options. You could add dry pumpkin pudding mix to the mixture( I found this at the inner depths of Hell Walmart, just add an extra 1/4 cup of whipping cream. You could also probably use 1/2 cup pumpkin pie mix, I haven't done that so I cannot guarantee how it would come out.

and if you have extra, put in the fridge to set up for an hour and use as a dip, with either graham crackers or apples. There you go, folks...two treats in one, you're welcome!

I can also say these are tasty as a breakfast option with a coffee(or if you're me, a Dunkachino)
