Pumpkin Ravioli with Salted Caramel Whipped Cream is a sweet version of ravioli made with crescent dough and pumpkin pie filling.
Pumpkin Ravioli with Salted Caramel Whipped Cream won the 45th Pillsbury Bake-Off in 2012. Recipe on Pillsbury.com by Christina Verrelli of Devon, Pennsylvania. This is such a creative recipe. Like a pumpkin pie filled pastry with nuts and a delicious flavored whipped cream. The salted caramel whipped cream is the perfect icing on this "cake."
Start by whipping up some cream cheese and pumpkin with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth. Add an egg yolk, vanilla, sugar, flour and pumpkin pie spice; beat on low speed until blended. Stir in some chopped pecans (I forgot this step, oops).
Roll the seamless dough sheet out until it's 12'' x 14". Use a knife to score it in half. Then score 12 rectangles on the bottom half. Scoop pumpkin mixture into the middle of each. Then fold the dough sheet in half, covering the filling.
Cut out the ravioli pieces.
Place on a cookie sheet brushed with butter.
Bake at 350°F. for about 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar after they're baked.
Serve with salted caramel whipped cream (recipe follows) and chopped pecans.
The pumpkin filling has a lovely flavor and texture. This Pumpkin Ravioli with Salted Caramel Whipped Cream dessert takes a little extra time, but it's a beautiful presentation. Very tasty too!
