Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

It's almost over. Pumpkin season. It's really sad. I always look forward to this time of year. So I have 2 pumpkin recipes for you this week.


Today its these pumpkin cinnamon rolls. They are soft, have the perfect amount of spices, and are topped with a maple frosting that sends them over the edge.


Melt in your mouth good, they're so amazing.  Make these for Thanksgiving breakfast. I will be! I'm going to get another right now. 


Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

3/4 cup Buttermilk, warm to 110 degrees
6 Tablespoons Butter, melted
1 large Egg, room temp
2/3 cup Pumpkin Puree
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 Tablespoon Instant Yeast
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon Ginger
1/8 teaspoon Cloves
4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour

Filling
6 Tablespoons Butter, room temp
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon

Frosting
2 oz Cream Cheese, room temp
3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Maple Extract
1 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar

Dough
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer  with your paddle attachment, combine the buttermilk and butter. beat to combine. Turn to low and add in the eggs, pumpkin, sugar, yeast, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and 1 cup of flour.

2.Change to paddle to your dough hook. Add the flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. It will still be sticky but not leave a lot of dough on your hands. Let the dough hook knead your dough for a minute or two, until its in a soft ball. Your dough will be softer than a regular bread dough because of the pumpkin.

3. Lightly grease a large bowl and place your dough in it. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 2 hours. You can speed this up by heating your oven to 170 and then turning your oven off. Place the covered bowl inside and keep an eye on it. It will probably take about an hour.

4. While the dough is rising grease a 9x13 cake pan. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. 

5. Grease your counter top. When your dough has doubled place your dough on it. Roll it out into a 12 x 16 inch rectangle. Spread your softened butter over the dough leaving an inch on one of the long sides without butter. Sprinkle your sugar/cinnamon mixture over the butter and roll over it with your rolling pin to compact it. 

6. Starting with the long sugar covered end, roll tightly all the way and pinch the unsugared end to seal the dough. Using a serrated knife cut into 12 even slices. Place the rolls in your greased cake pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise again for another hour or two, until doubled. 

7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 24 minutes until the tops are light golden brown. You don't want them too brown.

8. While the rolls are in the oven, combine the cream cheese and milk. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add in the vanilla and maple extracts and mix. Beat in the powdered sugar until smooth again. Spread over the rolls right out of the oven. Let cool slightly before eating.
