Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3 cups flour, divided
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Filling

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small sections

Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions

Dough

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl and let stand five minutes. Add 2/3 cup flour, pumpkin, milk, butter, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and vanilla to bowl and mix well. Transfer to a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook and knead on low 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Add flour 1 tablespoon at a time until dough forms a ball and is mostly no longer sticky. (May still be a bit tacky)
  • Coat a large bowl with cooking spray. Place dough in bowl and cover. Place bowl in a warm place and allow dough to rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

Filling

  • Combine sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Cut in butter with two forks or a pastry cutter until mixture resembles course crumbs.
  • Punch dough down. Allow to rest 10 minutes. Roll dough into a rectangle, about 12x12 inches. Sprinkle with filling. Roll tightly, pinch ends to seal, and slice into 9 sections. Place sections flat side down in a well greased 8x8 inch square pan. Cover and allow to rise about 30 more minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 375. Bake rolls about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly.

Glaze

  • Mix together powdered sugar, milk, maple extract, and maple syrup. Drizzle over rolls and serve warm.
