Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

You'll want to make these...
For the Dough:

1/2 cup warm H2O
4 1/2 tsp yeast
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
3 tbsp oil
approx 7 cups of flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Set your yeast, warm water and sugar in a bowl until the yeast dissolves, then stir in the remaining ingredients except for the flour. Stir in 5 or so cups of flour and add in more as needed until you have a nice tacky but not sticky dough. Place in a greased bowl in a warm spot until doubled, which takes about an hour.
For the Innards:
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Melt your butter.
Roll out your dough in two pieces on a floured board into a nice rectangle. Pour half the butter over the dough and sprinkle with half the filling. Roll up from the long end, pinching seam to hold closed. Cut into 2-3 inch sections with a sharp knife and place in a greased baking pan, leaving a teeny bit of room between each roll. Repeat with remaining dough, butter and sugar mixture. Set the rolls in a warm place for a half hr.

Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.

Frosting:
1, 8 oz. package cream cheese
6 tbsp butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cps powdered sugar

Beat butter and cream cheese together and add remaining ingredients. Spread icing over rolls right after they come out of the oven. Serve and enjoy!

Congratulations, Julie, on your sweet new pregnancy! Those first months are no good, I know, for baking or fiddling any extra in the kitchen.

Tesa -enjoy!
You too, Rachel!
Mrs. Mike, glad you liked them. My husband says it's his favorite cinnamon bun recipe.

South of the Fork, thanks for stopping by and enjoy those gooey things - so good!

Blessings,
Hannah
