Heat oven to 375ºF. Roll 1/4 of the dough into 9-inch circle on lightly floured surface; spread with 3 Tbsp. pumpkin, then sprinkle with 1/4 of the sugar mixture. Press sugar mixture into dough to secure. Cut dough into 16 wedges. Starting at wide edge, roll up each wedge. Place, point sides down, on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining dough.
