Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
- 3/4 cup milk
- 4 Tbs butter, cut into chunks
- 3 1/4 – 3 1/2 cups Turkey Bread Flour, divided
- 1 (.25 ounce) package instant or ‘rapid rise’ yeast (about 2 1/4 tsp)
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 8 oz can pumpkin purée
- 1 egg
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 block cream cheese, softened
- 2 T melted butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1–2 Tbs milk
Dough: Place milk and 4 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for about 1 minute 30 seconds. Butter should be mostly melted, but do not boil. Stir and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together 2 C flour, yeast, white sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. When milk mixture has cooled to warm (not hot) add it to the flour mixture along with the egg and the pumpkin purée. Beat until well combined, about 1 minute. Add in the rest of the flour a few tablespoons at a time, being careful not to add too much. The dough should be soft and slightly tacky. Knead dough for 5 minutes.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface and let rest for about 10 minutes while you make the filling.
Filling: Mix with softened butter with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Assembly: Roll dough into a rectangle about 12 x 14 inches. Spread brown sugar mixture over the surface and use your fingers or the back of a spoon to gently spread around. Roll up from the longer side of the rectangle and pinch edges closed. Score the roll into 12 equal pieces and then cut into rolls. Place in a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cover pan with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. When rolls have finished rising bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown.
Icing: Beat all the ingredients together and spread on warm pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
