Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 12


For the Rolls:

  • 3/4 cup milk (warmed)
  • 1 TBS yeast
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 egg
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the Filling:

  • 1/3 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 TBS cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice

For the Frosting:

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 and 1/2 TBS milk


  • Dissolve your yeast in your warmed milk in a large bowl for about 3 minutes.
  • Add in your pumpkin, butter, brown sugar, salt, eggs, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon into your milk. Mix everything together.
  • When the dough starts to pull from the edges, knead for 5 minutes until a large ball is formed.
  • Remove your dough ball from the bowl and spray the bowl with nonstick spray. Put your dough back into the bowl and cover your bowl with a towel. Leave it to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes, to 1 hour, until it doubles in size.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly flour your counter top and roll your dough into a rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick and about 16x22.
  • Coat your dough with your melted butter, covering completely.
  • Combine your brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over the surface of your dough covering completely.
  • Roll your dough from the top edge to the bottom edge (so the roll is 22 inches).
  • Carefully cut your roll into 1.5 inch slices and place them in a lightly greased 9x13 baking pan. You'll want 12 rolls, any extra dough can be discarded. 
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the top is golden and the dough is fully cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. 
  • While the rolls are cooling, combine the ingredients for the frosting. Add a little more powdered sugar or a little more milk if you need to change the consistency of your frosting.
  • Spread the frosting generously over the top of the rolls.
