Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

4 Nov

To make the dough:

1/3 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 packet of yeast

6ish cups of flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ginger

1 cup pumpkin (at room temperature)

2 eggs

Melt the margarine and add the buttermilk.  Warm to 100* F and add the packet of yeast.  Let it sit a minute to make sure it is active.  While it is sitting, mix the brown and white sugars, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in a large bowl.  Add the yeast mixture and mix.  Add the eggs and pumpkin. I think I might actually warm my pumpkin up next time so it is closer to the 100 degrees the yeast likes.  It should rise faster that way.  Add flour.  I kind of lost track of how many cups I used.  I think it was 5 or 6.  You want it to be soft, but not sticky.  Knead the dough until it isn’t sticky.  Throw it in the bowl, cover it and let it rise until almost double.  It took mine about 1 1/2 hours.

When it is almost doubled in size, punch it down and then roll it on a floured surface to about 3/8 inch thickness.  Spread the dough with margarine.  Then cover with the filling:

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup white sugar

Roll the dough and cut into about 1 inch wide pieces.  Place them in a greased 9 x 13 cake pan.  I had a few extra that I put in another pan.  Let them rise for about 30 minutes and then bake at 350* F for about 30 minutes.

Once they have cooled, you can frost with maple cream cheese frosting.  I had quite a bit left, so I might just have to make another batch of the cinnamon rolls:

4 oz. cream cheese at room temperature

2 Tbsp buttermilk

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla

dash of salt

powdered sugar (a little over 1 pound)

I cannot lie.  These are decadent!  They are wonderful!

They would be perfect for Christmas every morning.

      If I had been nice, I’d have stopped and dropped some off while I was making the rounds. They’re all gone now. Maybe next batch…

    Yumm! (Even if I can’t eat sugar much anymore!)

    • Teresa November 5, 2012 at 6:40 am #

      I would not like not eating sugar, but I did give most of them away so I didn’t eat them all.

    Oh, those look so yummy! Once I get caught up on my baking, I’ll have to make a pan!

    • Teresa November 5, 2012 at 11:10 am #

      They did turn out pretty good. There’s not a strong maple flavor to the frosting. I thought about playing with it a bit, but it’s still pretty good.

  10. Mama Zen November 5, 2012 at 1:32 pm #

    Those look divine!

    • Teresa November 5, 2012 at 1:54 pm #
