  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ¾ cups flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 ¼ tbsp instant dry yeast (1 package)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • ½ tbsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup pumpkin pure
  • 3 tbsp butter

Cream cheese glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4oz softened cream cheese

  • First, you need to prepare the dough. For this, you will need a large bowl in which the listed amount of salt, sugar, yeast, and flour need to combine until the mixture is evenly dispersed.
  • Then, put this bowl aside and take a microwavable bowl and put milk, water, and butter in it. Heat until the butter is well melted.
  • Now, stir the butter mixture into the flour mixture and once done add in the egg and knead with a stand mixer for about 5 minutes. Continue to mix if the dough is still sticky after 5 minutes.
  • Once done, form the dough into a ball and transfer it into a lightly greased bowl.
  • Finally, using either aluminum foil or a plastic wrap, loosely cover the dough and leave it to sit in a warm place for about an hour.
  • To prepare the filling, stir together the cinnamon, pumpkin puree, and brown sugar.
  • Next, take the dough, put it on a lightly floured surface and roll it into a rectangle shape.
  • Pour the cup of softened butter over the dough and use pumpkin filling to sprinkle over it.
  • To roll the dough, start at the short edge and roll it into a roll (pinch the side closed)
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the roll into 1-inch thick slices, then transfer the slices into a lightly greased 9-inch pan and let them sit and rise for about an hour.
  • Next, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, insert the pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Finally, for the cheese cream glaze, take a bowl and put the listed amount of powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract and mix until they are well combined.
  • Immediately after you get the pan out of the oven brush the rolls with the cream cheese glaze.
  • Once you’ve finished with brushing the rolls, serve and enjoy.
