I have been craving cinnamon buns and I knew that Simon would enjoy them too if I made them…
I got a recipe out and then realized that I just didn’t have enough butter for the whole recipe… so i sat down and tried to find something else that I could make… then I found this…
I just knew that I had to make them especially since I had some pumpkin in the fridge that I had to use up…
So for the dough…
2 1/4 tsp of yeast
1/2 cup of warm water
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
3 cups all purpose flour
Knead it together for about 5-7 min… the dough look and smells amazing…
The recipe said to let the dough rise for 15 min, but I let it rise until double… for about 45 min…
meanwhile make the filling… I added vanilla to mine…
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Roll out the dough in a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick and spread the filling on top…
roll into a log… and cut into slices (I made 10)… and place in a buttered pan… (I used a 9X9)
Let rise until double (about 45 min- and hour) and preheat oven to 400…
bake for about 20 min… (mine were done after 17 min with the convection oven)
Add the frosting while they are still in the pan and slightly warm…
For the frosting:
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened (half of a package)
1 tsp vanilla
1 or 2 dashes cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
These are truly amazing!!!
I made these today, I’m just about to put them in the oven. My house smells AMAZING!! Thanks for posting this recipe! I’m so glad I had everything to make them! I can’t wait to try them!
Aimee… I can’t wait to hear how yours turned out!!
Sophia… I am not too sure how they would work with sourdough… but I might have to give it a try… 🙂
Annie tells me you’re a whiz with sourdough (I’m still learning). I would love to know when you come up with a yeast free version. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Aimee- you made them already?! I want to get on makign this soon too. Admittedly, I have everything I need- except apparently the time…
Oh Yummy!! I’ve never used nutmeg in mine, I should definitely give it a try! Those look delicious!
They turned out great!! I let them rise for a longer time both times got sidetracked and took a walk with the boys, but they were AMAZING!! It was able to get 11 out of them and I think we have maybe 3 left! We had them for dessert and breakfast! Very good!!
lol… ok I am soo making these in the morning 🙂 you have the best recipies I swear or we just have the exact same taste!
These do look truly amazing, I will have to try them
I am so happy that they turned out great for you Aimee!

Had to come back to your site to get this recipe again. I made them before and they are so delicious that I’m craving them. I got enough pumpkin out of the freezer to make a triple batch. 😉 Now…to find a big enough pan…
