Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Frosting
What screams Fall more than pumpkin and maple? These rolls are scrumptious.
Pour 1/2 C. of milk and 1/2 C. of water in the bowl of your mixer. Add 2-1/4 tsp. of rapid rise yeast.
Add 1/4 C. of melted butter.
Add 3/4 C. of pumpkin puree and 2/3 C. of granulated sugar. Mix to combine.
Beat in 5-6 cups of flour until you have a nice ball of dough. Place it in a buttered bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. It will take about 1 hour.
While the dough is rising, mix 2 T. melted butter with 1/4 cup of maple syrup, 3/4 C. packed brown sugar, 2 T. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg.
Mix this until you have a paste.
After the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out into a 24 X 12 inch rectangle.
Spread it with the paste.
Roll it and slice it into 1 " thick slices.
You can bake these in either round pans or use a 9 X 13 pan. Grease the pans first. Cover and let them rise for 30 minutes.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.
Mix 2 C. of powdered sugar with 1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract, 3/4 tsp. maple flavoring and 3 T. milk. Drizzle the glaze over the tops of the rolls.
Pour a big glass of milk and enjoy!
