Pumpkin Pie Egg Rolls

Yep, that's right. I said Pumpkin Pie Egg Rolls. One of the reasons Fall is my favorite season is because of the many of ways I get incorporate pumpkin into my cooking. Every year when Fall comes to an end, I pledge to continue making pumpkin-y things all year round because its just silly that something so delicious only gets utilized four months out of the year. Then I, along with the rest of the world put the pumpkin away and forget all about it until Fall comes around again. These little gems have single-handedly convinced me to make sure I have pumpkin in my cabinets all year long!

If you like pumpkin pie, you have to try these. They are like little mini, inside out pumpkin pies! Dunk them in some spiced cool whip and you have a complete pumpkin pie experience without having to make (or eat) a whole pie! I have so much fun reinventing old favorites. How neat would it be to serve these for Thanksgiving dessert instead of pumpkin pie? I'd love to see the looks on everyone's faces!
