I am a huge coffee drinker, and although I normally eat pretty good in the morning some mornings just call for something sweet! The holidays are a difficult time to diet and watch what we eat. I try really hard, but it always fails!!

While doing my weekly pinning on Pinterest I stumbled across this recipe for a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Braided Bread! Thank you DelightfulEMade.com


I love this recipe because it called for a crescent roll dough. I was already hooked. I love these kind of shortcuts. The simplicity of using a little pumpkin puree with some pumpkin pie spice and also adding it to cream cheese….so easy!

Hmmmm Coffee

Of course I can’t bake in the morning without a cup of Hazelnut coffee…..

I will be the first to admit that I have never made a braided bread. This was so easy. If I can do it, anyone can do it!


Now the recipe called for Raw sugar or Turbinado sugar which is slightly larger and caramelizes better. I didn’t have this and didn’t feel like buying it. I used regular sugar and I didn’t get any complaints.

The glaze was simply confectioners sugar and cream cheese. I told you this was easy. Find Recipe Here: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Braided Bread

    Looks delicious! I’m having a cup of coffee right now. I don’t have anything that looks that good to go with it!

    It does look really good. Probably no GF version. Sad.

      Hey Aunt Carol – I found a Gluten free potato soup recipe. It actually looks pretty light, and you could just add some ham if you wanted to. Here’s the link to the Pinterest Pin I found: https://pin.it/ldghueivxobixj
