  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly whisked
  • pinch salt


  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Allow to stand for a while. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, and knead until elastic and smooth. Don’t worry if your dough is a bit sticky. Form the ball, place it into a greased bowl, cover with a cloth, and let stand in a warm place for 40 minutes.

Brush the dough with melted butter. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice with brown sugar, and sprinkle over the dough.

Grease your baking sheet. Form your pumpkin rolls, and bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Meanwhile, combine the melted butter, vanilla extract, sugar, and milk. Spread the glaze over your pumpkin rolls right after they come out of the oven.
