Pumpkiny Autumn Breakfast

We went pumpkin crazy when we were at Trader Joe's and bought Pumpkin Croissants, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, and Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix (I'll post about this at a later date — once I've made some pumpkin muffins).  Today's breakfast was pumpkin croissants and pumpkin spice coffee.

I think 20 minutes was too long, maybe 18 minutes would be better.
I added powdered sugar.

I don't usually drink pumpkin spice coffee; actively dislike the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but this Trader Joe's coffee was pretty good — it was very spicy.  The pumpkin croissants were decent, but not as good as their almond or chocolate ones.  My critique: I would lose the pumpkin seeds on top, because they don't add anything and distract from the pumpkin pie filling.  I would add more pumpkin pie filling and make it more evenly dispersed, because right now it's mostly flaky pastry and barely any pumpkin filling in only one small area of the croissant.  Overall, it was a pleasant, autumn breakfast that confirmed my love of Trader Joe's products.
