  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast or 1 packet
  • warm water


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add the molasses, honey, butter, and pumpkin puree. Stir briskly to blend. If the mixture is extremely stiff and hard to stir then add very warm water 1 tablespoon at a time. It should look like a stiff dough, not a cake batter. So make sure not to add too much water at once.
  • Add in the yeast and knead the dough until it's smooth to the touch. Set the dough aside and cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise at room temperature for 60 - 90 minutes until doubled in size.
  • Heat oven to 375° F and spray a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Divide the dough into 12 balls and place in muffin pan. Cover and allow the rolls to rise for about 30 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake at 375° for 15 - 20 minutes until very light golden brown. Remove the rolls to a cooling rack and serve hot.
