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 homemade pumpkin puree.

If you’re short on time?  Keep in mind, that you can use the canned pumpkin with this recipe as well.

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 homemade pumpkin puree and using fresh pumpkins to make desserts and dishes. 
  • There’s something about fresh pumpkin in baked goods. 
  • The flavor is much milder and the color is lighter. 
  • Adding fresh pumpkin to these rolls, or any recipe will give them incredible nutrients like vitamin A, along with antioxidants and carotenes in abundance.

Easy Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls are delicious for a weekend breakfast or an afternoon snack with coffee or 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!!
