Cinnamon-Swirl Pumpkin Rolls

Cinnamon-Swirl Pumpkin Rolls

These cinnamon-roll lookalikes are made with a golden, pumpkin-scented dough and lots of spice.

Ingredients

Dough

Filling

Glaze

* Substitute 3/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon for the Baker's Cinnamon Filling and water, if desired. If you use sugar and cinnamon, DO NOT ADD THE WATER.

*Adjust the amount of water by the time of year or your climate. For summer, or in a humid environment, use the lesser amount of water. In winter, or in a dry climate, use the greater amount. It's always best to start with the lesser amount.

Instructions

  1. Mix and knead all of the dough ingredients together by hand, mixer, or bread machine until you've made a soft, fairly smooth dough.
  2. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl, and allow the dough to rise for 1 1/2 hours, until it's almost doubled in bulk.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly greased surface. Roll it into a 14" x 22" rectangle; the dough will be thin.
  4. Mix the cinnamon filling and water. Spread a thin layer over the dough, leaving one short edge free of filling.
  5. Sprinkle with crystallized ginger or dried fruit (or both), if desired.
  6. Starting with the short end that's covered with filling, roll the dough into a log.
  7. Cut the log into nine 1 1/2"-thick rolls.
  8. Place the rolls into a lightly greased 9" x 9" pan that's at least 2" deep. Set aside, covered, to rise for 1 hour, or until the rolls look puffy.
  9. Bake the rolls in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until they're lightly browned and feel set. Remove them from the oven, and set them on a rack. Turn them out of the pan, and allow them to cool for about 15 minutes. Towards the end of the cooling time, make the glaze.
  10. To make the glaze: Heat the butter and milk together till the butter melts. Whisk into the sugar.
  11. Drizzle the warm rolls with the warm glaze. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.

Hands-on time: 20 mins. to 40 mins.
Baking time: 25 mins. to 30 mins.
Total time: 3 hrs 25 mins. to 5 hrs 10 mins.
Yield: 9 rolls

For a glaze that stays white and remains on top of the rolls, rather than partially melting in, allow the rolls to cool completely before glazing.
