Pumpkin rugelach (3 pieces or 25% of the whole)

Submitted by: HAWKTHREE

Introduction

My mother used leftover pie dough to make "piggies". These were any combination of ingredients rolled into a spiral and sliced.
I like the very flaky texture of Trader Joe's frozen pie crust with the pumpkin. Comes closer to the airy flaky dough of the real rugelach dough.
