    Even though Halloween and Thanksgiving are officially over and we’re entering into the Christmas Season, I am so gonna making this. My family loves crescent rolls (which I only buy through the holidays) and pumpkin. This sounds delicious!

    Congratulations on your recent publishing accomplishments!
