Cook: 15 minutes
3 tbsp. whipped cream cheese
3 tbsp. canned pure pumpkin
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 natural no-calorie sweetener packet
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt
3 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk you have on hand)
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla extract, sweetener, 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, and 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. Mix until uniform.
To make the dough, mix flour with remaining 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and 1/8 tsp. cinnamon in a large bowl. Add yogurt, and mix well. Evenly roll out dough into one large rectangle, about 8" x 6".
Spread with cream cheese mixture, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Tightly roll up the dough lengthwise into a log, and pinch the seam to seal.
Turn log seam side down, and cut into 8 rolls. Place rolls on the baking sheet, swirl sides up.
Spray with nonstick spray. Bake until light golden brown and cooked through, 10–12 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine powdered sugar with milk in a small bowl. Mix well. Drizzle over rolls.
MAKES 4 SERVINGS
HG Dough Tip: To prevent sticking, lightly dust your hands and work surface with flour or refrigerate dough for at least 5 minutes. It’s even easier to work with if you make the dough a day or two in advance.
Air-Fryer Alternative: Set air fryer to 360ºF (or nearest degree), and spray with nonstick spray. Add rolls in a single layer, and spray with nonstick spray. Cook for 10 minutes, or until tops are light golden brown and insides are cooked through.
