Fall is in full swing & I have got a super easy 3-ingredient recipe for you all today! We scarfed these, big time! I had a box of pumpkin spice pudding mix, and I knew I wanted to use it to make these mini bagels. They are so cute & super easy to make thanks to Rhodes frozen rolls!!! This was a fabulous treat to kick off the beginning of Fall. Plus it’s a perfect after school snack for your kiddos too.

Mini Pumpkin Spiced Bagels & Cream Cheese

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 12 servings


  • 12 Rhodes frozen dinner rolls
  • 1 (3.4oz) box pumpkin spice pudding mix
  • 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  • Place rolls on a baking sheet until thawed and slightly risen.
  • Combine 1 box Pumpkin Spice pudding mix, & 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice into a bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the pudding powder mixture for the cream cheese smear.
  • Push your thumb through the center of each roll. Stretch & shape the rolls to form an even ring with a 1" hole in the center.
  • Place rolls on a prepared baking sheet that's been lined with a silicone baking mat, parchment paper, or has been lightly greased with pan spray.
  • Bring a large pot filled halfway with water to a boil. Place bagels in the boiling water a few at a time. Boil for 45 seconds. Flip bagels over & boil another 45 seconds. This creates a firm skin on the bagel & a chewy center.
  • Once the boiling time is up remove bagels from the pot with a slotted spoon & place the bagels one at a time into the bowl of pudding powder.
  • Shake the bowl & gently turn the bagel over, shaking the bowl again to evenly coat the bagel. Carefully shake off excess powder & place the bagels on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Using a clean spray bottle, lightly spray the bagels with lukewarm water before putting them in the oven. Bake at 400˚F for 15-20 minutes or until the bread is baked through.
  • To make the pumpkin spice smear, combine the 2 tablespoons of reserved pudding powder & with 8 oz of cream cheese & ½ cup powdered sugar. Spread over toasted bagels.
