    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.
