I was originally inspired to create this delicious breakfast treat when my bestie Amy Black said, “You have to try the pumpkin filled croissants at Starbucks!”

Totally on board with this, I ran to my local Starbucks, but there were no pumpkin filled croissants to be found!

I then remembered one of my favorite breakfast treats of all time, Blueberry Pastry Delights. I immediately thought, I could basically do the same thing, but with pumpkin instead of blueberries.  Two weeks later, here we are… sitting in the middle of Pumpkin Pastry heaven!

The day I created these pastries, I was also cooking up several other dishes, and these were the first thing to go! I may or may not have eaten 3… or 4… by myself!
