No Yeast and No Rising dough with this recipe.  An easy recipe for anyone to follow!

 

Our Easy Cinnamon Rolls with Raisins and Walnuts are definitely the favorite, and these Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls are just as good!

Delicate cinnamon rolls like these are even better when they’re made with real pumpkin puree.

Short for time?  Keep in mind, you can use the canned pumpkin with this recipe as well.

 

 

Real Fresh Pumpkin vs Canned Pumpkin…

  • As soon as the pumpkins hit the farms and stores, I run out to buy a few and get busy working on them.  I enjoy making our homemade pumpkin puree and using fresh pumpkin to make various desserts and dishes. 

  • There’s something about fresh pumpkin in baked goods. 

  • The flavor is much milder and the color is lighter. 

  • Adding in the fresh pumpkin to these rolls, or any recipe will give them incredible nutrients like vitamin A, along with antioxidants and carotene’s in abundance.

 

For this recipe, I  blended my pumpkin puree with some brown sugar to sweeten it, along with some cinnamon and nutmeg as warm spices.

And the end result was fantastic! 

It gave these pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls a mild flavor of pumpkin, not overpowering, along with delicious warm spices from both the cinnamon and the nutmeg.  

Plus, when you top these rolls with our easy-to-make luscious cream cheese icing? 

Oh BOY!  These pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls just got even more addicting.

How to Make these EASY Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls…

1.  Simply open a package of puff pastry sheets from Pepperidge Farms and allow them to thaw for a few minutes.  

2.  Next, carefully unfold and brush each pastry sheet with some melted butter.

3.  Spread a layer of pumpkin mixture onto each sheet and roll each one like a jelly roll, then cut into  6 individual rolls.  

4.  Place all 12 rolls into a 12 cup muffin pan, brush the tops with melted butter, and bake.

Easy Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls are wonderful to serve as on-the-go breakfast or enjoy them in the afternoon with some tea.

For me, as soon as they pop out of the oven – I knew I couldn’t resist! 

I had to eat one before the icing was added, and then the second one as soon as I smeared some of that addicting icing on top.

You have to try these little cuties.  We know you’ll love them too!

Have a great day!

ENJOY!!
