2 pie crusts, store-bought or a recipe of your choice

1 cup mashed pumpkin  (remove moisture by setting on paper towels)

3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese

1/2 cup white sugar

3 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 egg white, beaten

¼ cup canned cream cheese frosting

Directions:  Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll pie crusts onto a greased cookie sheet.

 In a small bowl, combine pumpkin, 3 tablespoons of whipped cream cheese, 1/4  cup white sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. nutmeg. Spread pumpkin filling evenly on the two pie crusts.

 Roll up pie crusts. Brush each side with egg white.

 In a small bowl, stir together ¼ cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly on top of rolls.
