Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe


As I’m sure you’ve realized from some of my other posts, I really like pumpkin.  Here’s a delicious cinnamon roll recipe which I think will put the store bought ones to shame.

What You Will Need:


–   ¼ cup of warm water

–   2 ¼ tsp of active dry yeast

–   ¾ cup of pumpkin puree

–   1/3 cup of warm milk

–   1 egg

–   3 cups of flour

–   1 Tbsp of butter

–   ½ cup of brown sugar

–   1 tsp of salt

–   ¾ tsp of cinnamon

–   ¼ tsp of ginger

–   2 Tbsp of vegetable oil


–   ½ cup of butter

–   1 cup of brown sugar

–   1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice

–   1 Tbsp of cinnamon

Cream Cheese Frosting:

–   ½ cup of cream cheese

–   4 Tbsp of butter

–   1 tsp of vanilla

–    2 ½ cups of powdered sugar

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Mix the warm water and yeast together.  Let it sit for at least 5 minutes so that the yeast will activate.

2.   In a bowl, combine the beaten egg, pumpkin puree, warm milk, activated yeast, melted butter and 1 ½ cup of flour, brown sugar, ginger and cinnamon.  Mix together well.

3.   While mixing, slowly add 1 ½ cups of flour to the mixture until it has become tough.  Take out of the bowl and knead.

4.   Next, place the vegetable oil in a bowl and coat the dough with the oil.  Cover the dough with a towel and let sit for about an hour.

5.   After you have let the dough sit, roll out the dough and spread the soft butter on the surface.

6.   Now distribute the brown sugar over the butter and smooth it in together.

7.   Sprinkle the cinnamon and pumpkin spice on together of the butter/brown sugar mixture.  If you are a big fan of cinnamon, I would recommend adding a little more than what this recipe calls for. 

8.   Now roll up the dough together, like you would a normal cinnamon roll into a log.  With a knife, slice the log into about 12 slices, depending on how large you would like the buns to be. 

9.   Next, spray a baking sheet and evenly distribute the slices on to the sheet.  Cover with a towel and let sit for about 30 minutes so the slices can rise.  At this time, preheat your oven to 375°F. 

10.   Bake the rolls for about 20 minutes or until they become golden brown. 

11.   Mix the cream cheese ingredients together in a bowl.

12.   Once you have the rolls are done, let them sit for a few minutes and then frost.
