PUMPKIN CINNAMON ROLLS WITH MAPLE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING




With fall here and the weather outside becoming chilly we are celebrating Sunday Supper with warming trend recipes to keep you cozy when the temperature drops.



One of my favorite ways to stay toasty this time of year is Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls With Maple Cream Cheese Frosting warm out of the oven first thing in the morning.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls are assembled the night before then refrigerated and allowed to rise while the oven preheats in the morning making them the perfect way to start even a busy day.

It makes climbing out of bed on the weekends all the more enticing! 

The pumpkin is perfectly balanced with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg with a sticky gooey cinnamon, brown sugar, honey filling and covered with a sweet maple cream cheese frosting.
These rolls are so good my friends that even if you usually just eat the center you will find yourself savoring every last layer of deliciousness.



Heat 3/4 cup Buttermilk until warm but not hotter then 110 degrees.
Add warm buttermilk, 1/2 teaspoon Honey and 2 (1/4 ounce) packages of Active Dry Yeast to a mixer fitted with a dough hook.

Add 5 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and 1 teaspoon Salt.
Knead on low and then increase speed to around 4 until soft dough forms that pulls away from bowl  and is soft, smooth and elastic around 5 minutes.


Add 14 tablespoons Room Temperature Butter 1 tablespoon at a time while kneading on 4.
Dough will become gooey and soft but continue to knead.


Until dough become soft, smooth and pulls away from edge of bowl.
Around 8 minutes.

Place top of dough into bowl first and then flip over to cover top of dough in butter.

Spread half of the brown sugar, cinnamon, honey mixture over each half of dough.
Roll dough to form an 18" long roll.


Pinch seams tightly together and slice 2" thick.


Butter a 9"x13" and 8"x8" pan.
Place rolls evenly spaced into pans, cover and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to bake remove pan from fridge and allow to come to room temperature about 30 minutes.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of rolls comes out clean.


Beat together 8 ounces Room Temperature Cream Cheese and 1/4 cup Room Temperature Butter until creamy and well combined.
