How to Make Pumpkin cinnamon rolls

  • Take all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • In a separate vessel, combine pumpkin puree and egg, and whisk till they are mixed well.
  • Warm the milk, add yeast and 1/4 tsp of salt to activate the yeast. Keep it aside for 5 minutes until yeast foams.
  • Now mix everything with the dry ingredients bowl. Knead manually or using a stand mixer slowly for about 10 minutes.
  • The finished dough will be little soft and slightly sticky. (But if you really unable to handle the dough, add little flour to make it to a ball).
  • Now oil or butter a vessel and put the dough in to rise for 1 to 1.5 hours until it is double the size.
  • Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped nuts in a bowl and keep it aside.
  • Once the dough has risen, flour the working space and roll the dough into 19X13 inch rectangle.
  • Smear the butter all over and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture.
  • Roll it from one side towards the end like a roulade. Pinch the edges.
  • Now cut them to 16 equal parts. Arrange them in buttered square pan or any spring form pan.
  • You can also use muffin tin for individual rolls.
  • Close them using cling wrap and keep it aside in warm place.
  • Let it double in size again (it takes 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the weather).
  • Now bake them in the preheated 350 f oven for about 15 to 17 minutes or until they are lightly browned on the top.
  • For the rolls in the muffin tin it takes 3 minutes lesser time for baking. When it is slightly warm drizzle with the glaze.
