    How to Make Pumpkin Cheesecake Cinnamon Rolls

    These semi-homemade pumpkin cheesecake cinnamon rolls are easily prepared in a few easy steps. Be sure to reference the full printable recipe card toward the bottom of the page.

    Step 1: Prep the filling & topping

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the softened cream cheese, pumpkin puree, and all remaining cheesecake ingredients. Mix well until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and flour. The cut in the cold butter until you have small sandy clumps.

    Step 2: Assemble the cinnamon rolls

    Butter up a muffin tin and press one cinnamon roll into each cavity, working it up the sides, creating a well for the cheesecake filling. Add 1-2 tablespoons of cheesecake filling into each cinnamon roll.

    Sprinkle on the streusel topping over each cinnamon roll muffin. Lightly cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes, removing the foil halfway through (10 minutes).

    Step 3: Finish it off with icing

    While the cinnamon rolls are baking, whip together the simple pumpkin spice icing by combining all ingredients into a medium bowl. I just rinse out my streusel bowl and use it for the icing.

    Once the cinnamon rolls are baked through, allow them to sit and cool for at least 15 minutes before drizzling the icing on top. If you ice them too soon it will just melt into a mess.

    Quick Pumpkin Cheesecake Tips:

    • You may be tempted to add extra cheesecake filling, but if they have too much filling, it won’t fully cook before cinnamon rolls brown.
    • Buy pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
    • Strain the moisture from the pumpkin well
    • Don’t have time to get the cream cheese soft? Place it unwrapped on a plate and microwave in short bursts until softened.
