In a medium bowl, stir together pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and egg yolk.
Stir in pecans.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unroll the dough onto the parchment paper.
Spread filling in a 3 to 4 inch strip down the center of the dough.
With a knife, make cuts every 1-inch on both sides going to the edge of the filling.
Fold strips at an angle, alternating from side to side to cover the filling.
In a small bowl, beat the egg white to get it foamy. Brush over dough.
Bake for 22 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Using a hand-held electric mixer, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
Beat in vanilla and milk. Place in a ziptop bag. Snip the corner and drizzle over crescent braid.
Sprinkle with nuts.
Note: Wait for the braid to cool some before drizzling the glaze.
