Reviews for Pumpkin Eggnog Rolls
"I made these today and I must say, I love them! My daughter liked them too, and she doesn't really care for pumpkin. I will definitely be making these again. They are sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth craving, yet not too sweet or too rich. A nice change from the cinnamon roll. Working up the dough was a snap for me since I am blessed with a Kitchen Aid."
