Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

the rolls were so good that I didn't get a picture
before they were completely consumed
I love making cinnamon rolls and I love making anything with pumpkin this time of year (I know you've all been inundated with pumpkin recipes, but what's the harm in just one more). I've made Pumpkin Spice Bread Bites with spiced cream cheese dip and they turned out absolutely deliciously but I decided to attempt my own recipe for pumpkin cinnamon rolls. They were super yummy! 
Here's what I used:
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cups warm water
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, divided 
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or butter 
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree 
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats, pulsed in a food processor till the texture of flour 
  • 4 cups flour blend (whatever flour blend you choose) this is what I use
    • 1 cup 9-Grain Flour Blend 
    • 1.0 cup, Whole Wheat Flour 
    • 2.0 cup, All-purpose Flour 
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg, divided 
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, divided
  • regular cream cheese frosting, salted caramel cream cheese frosting, or spiced cream cheese frosting
all rolled out
  1. In the pan of your bread machine or bowl of your stand mixer with bread hook attachment, combine dough ingredients in order listed - yeast, water, 1/4 cup brown sugar, oil/butter, pumpkin, oats, flour blend, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ginger. Set machine to Dough cycle; press Start. If using your stand mixer, combine ingredients on the 2 or 3 setting till dough forms a ball. Remove bowl from mixer and cover with a tea towel to rise for 1 hour.
  2. When Dough cycle or rising has finished, turn dough out
    onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 17x10 inch rectangle. Spread with softened butter. In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup brown sugar and remaining spices. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over dough.
  3. Roll dough, beginning with long side, jellyroll style. Slice into 15-16 one inch slices and place in 9x13 greased pan. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20
    sugar and spice rubbed
    minutes. While rolls bake, make up whichever cream cheese frosting you decide to use. Remove rolls from oven and top with frosting.

  5. Enjoy with a nice Americano or your favorite cup of coffee.
