    This recipe comes together very easy and uses classic holiday pantry ingredients. Its aroma makes getting up for breakfast a treat for adults and kids alike. Reduce the fat in each serving by using reduced fat crescent dinner rolls.

      Very good. Just happened to have a little extra pumpkin sitting in the frig and cresent rolls so walha, pumpkin-pecan braid. Very easy - son likes almost as much as pumpkin pie - he would have been happy to add some cool whip. I was wondering about adding some cream cheese?????

      This is a beautiful brunch dish. We had this Thanksgiving morning. I felt the spices could have been pumped up a bit.
