kelsandra's pumpkin cinnamon rolls


  • Servings: 12
  • 1/4 cup warm water (100 degrees f/38 degrees c)
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons spice
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour, or more if needed
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk


    Preparation Time: 30 mins Cook Time: 30 mins Ready Time: 1 hr 50 mins

  • pour the warm water into a large mixing bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the water. allow to stand until the yeast begins to form a creamy foam, 5 to 10 minutes. stir in evaporated milk, white sugar, pumpkin, olive oil, and egg. mix until thoroughly combined. mix in 2 teaspoons of spice, then add about 5 cups of flour, or as needed to make a stiff dough. turn the dough out a floured work surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. dough will be slightly sticky. form the dough into a ball, place into an oiled bowl, cover with a cloth, and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes. (the dough will rise, but it won't double.)
  • preheat oven to 350 degrees f (175 degrees c). grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • punch down the dough, and roll it out to a rectangle shape on a floured work surface until it measures about 18 inches wide and 26 inches long. brush the dough with 1/4 cup melted butter. mix the brown sugar with 2 tablespoons of spice in a small bowl, and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the dough. roll up the dough the long way, and pinch the seam closed, then cut the dough into 12 equal-sized pieces with a sharp knife. lay the rolls into the prepared baking dish.
  • bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • while the rolls are baking, mix vanilla extract, cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, confectioners' sugar, and milk together to make a glaze. spread the glaze over the rolls as soon as they come out of the oven.
