Pumpkin Rolls with orange glaze


I had a few recipes  that I was going to make with the last batch of pumpkin puree I made. I ended up eating just about all of it with no frills, just a dash cinnamon a spoon and maybe a finger or two. .But I did have enough to make the mr. a small batch of these pumpkin rolls. A small victory in sharing!


Nothing fancy, just a little pizza dough, a bit of  pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and some brown sugar.


Roll out dough… It is pizza dough so it will spring back a bit.  Mix the pumpkin and spice together with the brown sugar then smear over dough, leaving a bit of a bare boarder.. For real, you could stop here and just make a sweet pumpkin spice  pizza which would be oh so delightful.  For the rolls, starting at the top. roll dough down towards you. Dont roll to tight or all the pumpkin will squeeze out.


Now that you have a nice log.. cut it into equalish sized pieces and place on a piece or parchment paper. I would definitely use parchment because these will get gooey underneath,. You can space them out, but I like to bunch them together. Its prettier that way.


Once in the oven, whip up the glaze.


A  squeeze of orange, a pitch of orange zest and some powdered sugar should do it. If you want to make a plain glaze, go ahead. Just use milk and add a bit of vanilla.


Once you pull the rolls from the oven, let them cool for a few minutes but you want them to be warm when you drizzle glaze all over them..
