Scald cream and sugar.  Temper the eggs with the cream.  Combine custard with the spices and pumpkin.  Strain

Spray an 8x8 with pan spray. Arrange cinnamon rolls in pan. Pour the warm custard over, and let sit overnight in refrigerator. The custard will soak in to the rolls.

In separate bowl, combine remaining crumbs, cinnamon and oatmeal.  Pour 1/2 the sweetened condensed milk over the crumb mix and toss gently to coat.  Top the apples with the crumbs and bake till bubbly and golden.
