I love cooking with pumpkin because it’s versatile, colorful and nutritious. Combining that ingredient with chopped apple and cider gives these glazed rolls their autumn appeal.—Jennifer Coduto, Kent, Ohio

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and honey. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, butter, pie spice, salt, yeast mixture and 1-1/2 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. For filling, mix sugar and cinnamon. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Press dough into a 14x12-in. rectangle. Brush with melted butter to within 1/2 in. of edges. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and apple. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices.
  4. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan, cut side down. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. In a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar and apple cider; drizzle over warm rolls. Sprinkle with walnuts. Yield: 1 dozen.
