Pumpkin Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

Pumpkin Cheesecake filling, rolled up and baked inside flaky crescent rolls, and topped with pumpkin spice drizzle. It's pumpkin cheesecake you can eat for breakfast.....need I say more??

Of all the behaviors we have dealt with between our three children (and there have been many) the most obnoxious, by far, is the one we are currently dealing with with Nora. To give you a little background, Nora spent the first nine months of her life sleeping.....literally! To the point where people would come to our house and never even see her...because she was sleeping! To the point where people would actually forget that we had three kids! And when she was awake, she was sweet as can be.....calm, peaceful, easy.

Which is probably why her current behavior is SO VERY obnoxious.....because on top of the fact that it is incredibly difficult to live with, it makes us wonder what happened to our sweet little baby! Now, instead of forgetting she exists, people wish she would just go away! And stop all that screaming! Yes, Nora is a screamer. She's a screamer and a the point where I've actually taken her to the doctor to see if something is wrong with her that might be causing such a short fuse!! (I wish I was kidding...)

She yells when she doesn't get her way, or when your hand accidentally touches hers and she doesn't want it to, or when she doesn't like what you gave her for lunch, or when she can't get her shoes on. She screams when she's been in the car too long, or when you tell her she can't have a piece of gum, or when her sisters aren't home from school and she wants to play with them. She gets approximately 27 timeouts a day....and yet, the screaming and yelling doesn't stop. At least not for long. But that's not even the worst. No....the worst is when she wakes up yelling....which she does more often than not....and the yelling and screaming lasts for 20 minutes or more.....until (exhausted) she finally gives up the fight and decides she's ready to get up. At which point the rest of us are ready for a nap. Oh, Nora....what will we do with you?

I wish I had the answer. I wish I had any answer! Because, as much as I love the fact that a time out will calm her down, what I really want is for the behavior to stop, altogether! I want peace to be restored!!

And....until it better believe I'll be waking up to some delicious breakfasts. Because if I can't have peace in my mornings, at least I can have something good to eat.

  1. These sound so very good. I could have one (or two) with a cup of coffee right now. ☺

  2. Yum! Cheesecake for breakfast is a win, win, WIN in my book! Thanks for sharing my friend!

  3. Cathy, these are such a delicious idea, wish they were in my kitchen! So sorry about little Nora. Kids are something aren't they? You wish they could just tell you what is wrong and what they need? Each kids is so different with their own set of challenges. I hope it gets better soon!

  4. Ah kids. Can't live with them...can't get rid of them either. ;)

    Love these soooooo much!

  5. Oh Nora..I think you are testing your mother's patience in a major way! Maybe she'll be an angel come her teen years! One can hope :) These look AMAZING and now I want breakfast!

  6. I'm sure this is just a phase - you know, a really annoying, LOUD phase :) My boys get about 27 timeouts a day too but it's because they're just plain bad ;) Seriously though, these rolls are killing me! Pinned to my pumpkin board and will be scarfing down soon! Have a great weekend Cathy!

  7. Ok... these crescents would be a major problem for me around here! :)

  8. ::drool:: this looks amazing! Yum!

  9. Oh. My. Heck. These look absolutely AMAZING!!!! Totally making these! Pinned!!!

  10. OMGosh! These look amazing! They look like they might taste similar to the McDonald's pumpkin pies they have just in the fall?
    Thank you so much for sharing this week at Marvelous Mondays, Cathy! :)

  11. WOW! they look SO good! LOVE pumpkin season

  12. What a great idea! Feel free to come share on my link up.

  13. Yummy I love all things pumpkin. There are simple behavior mod techniques to help with this behavior- she will be happier and so will the rest of the family. I would take her to a child psychologist (not creepy at all) so they can help you- probably in less than three sessions. Sometimes we are rewarding the negative behavior and don't realize it. I feel like a buttinski but (there is one) lol
    - my cousin who is a trained licensed psychologist is always saying why don't parents use us and our skills early- we are here to help. Wishing you the best and thanks for the recipe.
