Pumpkin Maple Cinnamon Rolls

I was wanting to make cinnamon rolls – with maybe a new-flavored filling – like cappuccino or maple. Then I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Dinner Rolls on www.tammysrecipes.com, and I had an idea – pumpkin cinnamon rolls with maple filling! They turned out very well – moist, pumpkin-colored rolls with good filling. =)

Pumpkin Maple Cinnamon Rolls

1/2 cup sugar or 1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup warm water

1 cup warm milk

2 T. butter

1 cup mashed pumpkin

1 tsp. salt

1/4 cup wheat germ, optional

1/4 cup gluten flour, optional

5-6 cups flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)

3 1/2 tsp. yeast

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, water, milk, butter, pumpkin, and salt. Mix well. Add wheat germ, 3-4 cups flour, and yeast. Mix, and continue adding flour and kneading until dough is elastic and not sticky. Place dough in greased bowl; grease top of dough, cover with a towel, and set in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour). (Actually, I stuck it in the refrigerator overnight.)

Filling:

Butter

Honey

Maple Syrup

Cinnamon

Chopped nuts

Combine about 3/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/2 cup honey, and as much cinnamon as suits your taste.

Roll out pumpkin dough in a large rectangle. Spread with filling; sprinkle with nuts. Roll up jelly-roll style; slice with a knife or cut through with a thread. Place rolls in 2 greased 9×13″ pans. Let rise for about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until done. Serve hot or cold. If desired, add a glaze.

Yield: 2 dozen

By the way, I just updated the “Tea Time” page!
