Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I especially love being in the kitchen, exploring every conceivable way to incorporate pumpkin into my creations.

Last week I made a batch of cinnamon rolls. So this week I decided to give them a fall-inspired twist and sneak some pumpkin and spices into the dough.

Let’s make some Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls!

How to make Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls:

If you’ve ever made cinnamon rolls before, the process is pretty similar. The only big change is adding pumpkin puree and including lots of fall spices.

This recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting is one of my favorites. It's the perfect sweet to enjoy on a crisp fall morning. Everyone will love the rich pumpkin flavor of these cinnamon rolls.

Ingredients

Dough:
  • ¼ ounce package yeast
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ½ cup scalded milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter - melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 egg
  • 4 - 5 cups all-purpose flour
Filling:
Maple Cream Cheese Frosting:

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. 
  • In a stand mixer bowl, combine milk, sugar, melted butter, pumpkin puree, spices, salt, and egg with a spoon. Attach the bowl to the mixer with the dough hook attached. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead with dough hook for about 5 minutes. (If not using a stand mixer, knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes.) Place in well-greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • When doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread softened butter all over dough. In a small bowl, mix together sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. Then sprinkle over buttered dough. Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices.
  • Coat the bottom of 13 x 9 baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
  • Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, butter, confectioner’s sugar, salt, Mapleine, and vanilla until smooth. For a thicker icing, add more powdered sugar. Spread over slightly cooled rolls.

    Delicious? Yes, but it missed the mark on letting the pumpkin shine. Next time I do this bake I’ll be cutting the cinnamon in the filling by at LEAST half, 2 TBSP is way too much. It over powers the pumpkin, making the rolls just taste like cinnamon rolls. I also might try cutting the butter in the filling and adding some additional pumpkin purée.

    These are the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever made. So easy to make. The only thing I did very different is I added a cup of water and yeast to the recipe and 64g flour to my 3.5 c of flour I started on. I left it in a cold oven with a tray of boiling water underneath for the rising 3 hours. +I added extra nutmeg because I didn’t have pumpkin spice blend *because I didn’t have other spices.

    They were so good that I can’t wait to make them again. Next time, I am proofing my yeast the same way too.

    Can you tell me how to make adjustments to this recipe for high altitude? I’m at 8,000 ft. I’m trying to win a pumpkin baking contest!

    These are amazing!!! Do you know if refrigerating the dough overnight would still be okay? I’ve made them before, but not with refrigerating the dough. Just curious! Thank you!

    Why am I just now finding this recipe??! The cinnamon rolls are delicious – so soft and full of flavour! Definitely a crowd pleaser at this house and at work. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! I look forward to following your blog and trying more recipes.

    These cinnamon rolls were amazing! My husband and I made them for Thanksgiving yesterday and everybody loved them. My husband said there were the best cinnamon rolls he ever had. We did decrease the sugar a little and replace some of the sugar with maple syrup because we didn’t have the maple extract. We definitively make them again.
