There was always a lot to do at my grandmothers at this time of year. Since she had a bar with a hardware shop, the main concern were winter stocks for harsh winters they had. Home made everything.

Pumpkins were used often but prepared different way; she used to mix them with cream cheese and made phyllo cake. Her frugal ideas were endless. Mains included pumpkins with minced meat, or cottage cheese; desserts made with poppy seeds, nuts, apples, grapes, just name it. She had it all.

Inspired by her creations, I made

Bolognese and Mozzarella Phyllo Cake ( Snake Cake )  and

Zucchini and Parmesan Phyllo Cake

Butternut squash is my favourite to work with so used it to make these Perfect Pumpkin Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls. The taste I created is not of pumpkin pie filling. Our version is mild since it has only one teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and one tablespoon of sugar.

So, the dough is soft, delicate and nicely colored to make amazing balance with softened cream cheese and egg wash to emphasize the pumpkin colour.

If you are out of cream cheese, here is an option to fill the crescents with your favorite jam. Here you can see the way they look when filled with Isabela Grapes Jam  :
