Light and fluffy buttermilk Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls are topped with Cheese Frosting – the ultimate fall breakfast! They can be made overnight so that you can wake up to fresh rolls!
Happy Friday!!! And welcome to the final day of PUMPKIN WEEK! I hope you enjoyed all the pumpkin goodness this week – I know that I sure enjoyed eating all of it! If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there is a round-up of all the pumpkin recipes in case you missed any.
I saved the best for last…Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting!! Pumpkin adds so much flavor and a beautiful color to the light and fluffy buttermilk dough. Pumpkin pie spice mixed with cinnamon gives the filling a distinct pumpkin-y flavor. And cream cheese frosting tops it all off. These rolls are absolutely delicious and could not be prettier. This is what I call a showstopper of a fall breakfast!
I absolutely love cinnamon rolls, and I really think that they are one of the most impressive things to come out of my kitchen. I get SO excited when I have a giant tray of fresh cinnamon rolls to serve (slash eat). And I was extra excited about these pumpkin cinnamon rolls – the color is so pretty and they taste delicious. It is all the best flavors of fall rolled into one beautiful roll.
These pumpkin cinnamon rolls can be made overnight or all at once. I made them on a Friday night so that I could wake up on Saturday morning and have fresh cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Here are the steps:
1) Make the dough.
2) Let it rise.
3) Roll out the dough, slather with cinnamon mixture, roll into a log, cut into rolls, place on a sheet pan.
Now is when you can either finish making the rolls, or save them for the next day. If you want to do the overnight route, tightly wrap the sheet pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until then next morning. Then move on to…
4) Let the rolls rise.
6) Make frosting and slather on rolls.
There’s no getting around it – homemade cinnamon rolls are a lot of work. Which is part of the reason why I’m always so impressed when I successfully make a batch! But to me, it is worth all the hard work to have fresh, fluffy, flavorful, delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Particularly when they are pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
Although it will probably only happen once or twice a year. Baked donuts are so much easier 😉
I hope you liked all of my pumpkin recipes this week! It was such a fun way for me to celebrate my favorite season and one of my favorite flavors.
And now it is time to bake something with chocolate peanut butter to make TheBetterHalf happy…he is quite sick of pumpkin right now 🙂
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
