I was on the phone with my sister a while back and it was clear that she was stressing about mid terms. I wanted to cheer her up a bit so I thought I would send her a care package to take her mind off exams. I had been seeing pumpkin cinnamon rolls all over Pinterest and read a lot of the recipes but I kept coming back to my favorite cinnamon roll recipe and I thought I would try modifying it.
I added 1 cup of pumpkin puree to the milk mixture. I followed the recipe from there but I ended up needing a lot more flour. Like 4 cups come flour! Next time I will add 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree, 2 extra cups of flour with the first addition of flour and then 1 extra cup of flour with the second addition. I usually divide the dough into 2 batches but I decided to go for the mega rolls this time...
Normally I get at least 4 dozen of rolls...this time I got 2 dozen. Instead of using my usual cream cheese icing I decided to mix it up a bit. Fall calls for maple!
All tasters seriously approved of this modification. Sorry it has taken me so long to get this post up Stantecers!
Want someone to love you forever? Make these. I'm not kidding. Go do it...NOW!
