Oh yeah we are doing this!!!!!
Ingredients for dough
- 2 packages active dry yeast
- plus 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1/4 cup (about 110 degrees) water
- 3/4 cup whole milk, scalded and cooled
- 1 cup pumpkin puree, canned
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar (always make my own just add one tablespoon of molasses to 1 cup sugar)
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
In the microwave in a small glass bowl, scald your milk for about 3 minutes. Remove from microwave. Add in the 6 tablespoons of butter, stir until melted. Then add in both sugars and pumpkin puree. Place this mixture in the bowl of your electric mixer.
In another small bowl add the yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar, to that add the 1/4 cup of hot water. Gently stir and allow the mixture to puff up (or proof). Once the yeast mixture looks foamy and puffy (about 3 minutes) add to the pumpkin mixture in the mixing bowl, add the egg. Now gradually add in the flour, one cup at a time. Make sure to use your dough hook and mix for around 1 minute. The dough should be pretty soft, it may be sticky don’t worry you can add flour later.
Place the dough ball in a lightly greased glass bowl, covered, and put in a warm place until the dough has doubled, about 1 hour.
Once the dough has doubled, place the dough onto a lightly floured surface, punch the dough down. Roll into a large rectangle and spread your filling over the rectangle. Now you will roll up your pumpkin rolls and use dental floss to cut the rolls.
- 3/4 cup Brown Sugar ( please make your own it’s so easy)
- 2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground Cloves
- 1 tablespoon Butter
Blend with a small blender or you can hand blend and spread.
Cover lightly with plastic wrap and set aside, in a warm environment, until they have doubled again and look light and puffy.
They will look darker than Cinnamon Rolls when they come out of the oven…Due to the Pumpkin puree.
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese
- 3 tablespoons buttermilk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Serve hot or at room temperature.
