Servings: 6
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes

  • 1 lb. (16 oz.) frozen bread loaf dough, thawed
  • 1 cup pure Pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease or butter a 9-in. round cake pan.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, spice, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together in a bowl.
  3. Prepare to roll out your dough by covering a large cutting board with plastic wrap. This will help you roll your dough up easily.
  4. Flour your surface well and roll out your dough into a large rectangle (about 11"x14").
  5. Spread your pumpkin mixture evenly over the dough leaving a 1" space on the longest edge (facing away from you.) Wet this edge with a tiny amount of water.
  6. Starting with the long edge closest to you, use the plastic wrap to help you roll the dough up into a long tube.

  7. Cut the tube of dough into 12 even pieces and place them into the greased pan, swirl-side-up, with a bit of room in between them.
  8. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap and set it in a warm spot to rise for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

  9. Once they've risen to fill the pan, bake on the highest shelf in the oven for 25 minutes, or until slightly browned on top.

  10. While they're baking, make the icing by mixing together the powdered sugar, softened butter, and vanilla with a hand mixer.
  11. Add in 1 Tbsp. of the milk and beat until incorporated. Add in the last Tbsp. of milk a little at a time until you have a thick glaze about the consistency of cake icing.

  12. When the rolls come out of the oven, spread the icing over the hot tops and let it melt!

If making these ahead, bake as directed, store in the fridge, and microwave or toast to heat them up in the morning.
