  • 2.5 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 C water 105-115 degrees F
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 C canned pumpkin
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 3 Tbsp butter softened
  • 3.5 C unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 Tbsp honey


  • Dissolve the water and yeast in the bowl of your KitchenAid and let stand 5 minutes. The mixture should froth/foam up - if it doesn't, toss and start over with fresh yeast.
  • Add the sugar, pumpkin, eggs, butter, salt, and flour to the mixer. Using the hook attachment, stir to mix well - the mixture should pull away from the sides of the bowl but still be rather sticky.
  • Oil your hands, then turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface... knead for just 1-2 minutes.
  • Shape into a ball and place in a well-oiled bowl - turn to coat the surface. Cover and rise 1 hour - until doubled in size.
  • Punch down, let dough rest 1-2 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal sized portions. Form into rolls - pull the top/sides down and pinch under, placing the rolls seam side down in your baking pan. In the meantime, heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Once the rolls have risen (30-40 min), bake 9-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Optional: Combine the melted butter and honey in a small bowl. Brush rolls with the honey butter glaze before serving.
