"I made this awhile ago (around Thanksgiving of 08! But I forgot to come back an leave a review! I loved this recipe! I was able to divide the dough in half and make one into the rolls and the other I made into bread instead of rolls! It was so good! It has a nice hint of pumpkin in it which goes perfect with a Thanksgiving meal or with soup! You could also use the rolls for sandwiches which would be delicious! The baked rolls and bread freeze well too! I had one for dinner and then the other saved in the freezer to use another time! It was great! =:D Thank you for this great recipe!
