- 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons water (70° to 80°), divided
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1 egg white

- When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into nine balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-in. hole. Stretch and shape dough to form an even ring. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten rings slightly.
