Pumpkin Dinner Rolls!

Pumpkin Rolls

Well, it is official! I made my first batch of Pumpkin Rolls this season last night and it’s starting to really feel like fall. πŸ™‚ *Happy Sigh inserted here* So, to keep in the fall pumpkin theme here on Granola Girl Bakes, I thought I would share my very own Pumpkin Roll recipe with you! Slightly sweet, pumpkiny, and delightfully vibrant, I guarantee these dinners rolls would be a fall favorite for you. Happy Fall!!

Yields 24 large rolls!

Ingredients

  • 2 TBS active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 6 TBS butter [melted]
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 TBS salt
  • 4 eggs [beaten]
  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin
  • 5 or more cups flour (I did a 50/50 wheat to white ratio)

Directions

  1. Activate yeast in warm water with 1/2 tsp white sugar. Once activated add butter, honey, salt, eggs, and pumpkin. Mix well! Slowly begin incorporating flour until dough is slightly sticky but workable.
  2. Place dough on a well-floured surface and knead for 6 minutes, adding flour when necessary. Place in lightly oiled bowl and allow to rise until double(about 1 hour.) Meanwhile generously butter 2 9×13 pans (or a larger cookie sheet!)
  3. Punch down, divide dough into 24 pieces, and form into round balls. Place dough in buttered 9Γ—13 Pyrex and allow to rise until double again(30 or so minutes!) Preheat oven to 375Β°(f).
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown!
  5. Serve with homemade apple butter, honey, or just by themselves and enjoy!! πŸ™‚
