Pretty Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.
This are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had. I sent some to work with my husband and everyone loved them. There is not a lot of pumpkin flavor, but they are very moist. I did have to add more flour (about another cup) to get the dough to form a soft ball, but they were still very moist and I got over 3 dozen cinnamon rolls out of the batch.
Not a big fan of cinnamon rolls, but I thought these were great! They taste just like they look like they would. I even messed up the yeast a little bit, still good.
I add 2 cups of pumpkin to this recipe along with pumkin spice mix and a lot more cinimon. Each time it turns out amazing. The key is to add your spice until you can smell the cinimon or pumkin pie spice over the butter you mix it with. The second thing I realized after my first batch is that you have to, MUST let it rise at least twice. I give it 3 or so hours for the first rise. After I turn the dough out into three batches instead of 2, roll into the proper form and then let it rise again. The results are amazing. Trust me you won't be dissipointed.
These rolls are delicious! I will definitely be making these over and over!
I have made these quite a few times and we love them. I agree with other reviewers that the pumpkin flavor does not really come through, but they are delicious, especially with a cream cheese frosting!
put a cream cheese frosting on them,,,, added touch.....
After reading so many wonderful reviews and looking at the recipe, I thought this would be a new favorite for me. Unfortunately it wasn't. I had the same problem as Jello jiggler, and tried baking it again another time, I just had huge, flavorless and dry rolls. It was such a tease to smell the pumpkin, sugar and spices and had that as a result.If anyone knows why I went wrong, please speak up. Otherwise, this will be water under the bridge and I'll find something better.
These were delicious! The rolls were very soft and tender. You didn't really taste the pumpkin but it added a pretty coloring and made a lovely dough. These were pretty delicious and amazing!
While hot out of the oven, these tasted fine, they settled like a brick in my stomach, (too much shortening?) didn't have enough cinnamon flavor AT ALL, no pumpkin flavor whatsoever, and mostly...the bread just wasn't right. It had lots of air bubbles in it, and I knew with my first bite that by the next day they would be dry and crumbly (like sub par grocery store cinnamon rolls). The idea was fun, and no one was "disappointed" with these except me. I'm still hunting for the perfect cinnamon roll.
I have made these and they are delicious. My coworkers loved them. Based on comments from reviewers, and my own preference, I will make the following changes. Some reviewers stated that although the rolls were great the pumpkin flavor was not predominant. In my area at holiday time, they sell pumpkin eggnog, as well as pumpkin pudding mix. I don't know that I would use both together, as the pumpkin flavor might be overpowering. I will try both, each separately, and let you know how they turn out. Or if someone else tries it before I do, please share your comments. I'm hoping with these changes it will take this great recipe over the top :)
