  • Oven


  • 5 cups better for bread flour
  • 15 oz pure pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup 2% milk, scalded
  • cup light brown sugar
  • cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • tsp allspice
  • tsp nutmeg
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 packages active dry yeast (1/2 ounces)
  • ¼ cup lukewarm water

Honey Glaze

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp water

Honey Butter

  • 1 cup soften salted butter
  • cup honey
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Pour hot milk in a mixing bowl, add butter and stir to melt.
  • Add sugars, pumpkin puree, and salt to the milk and mix well.
  • In a separate small bowl, put yeast in with lukewarm water and a teaspoon sugar.
  • When the yeast gets foamy, add to the pumpkin mixture.
  • Add the egg, mix well.
  • Slowly add in flour and mix with a wooden spoon or in your mixer (using the bread hook) until well combined. *The dough will be sticky. If using a mixer, the dough will pull itself from the side of the bowl.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and put it on your counter or a wooden board dusted with a little flour.
  • Knead with your hand for 1 minute.
  • Form the dough into a ball shape, place in a greased bowl and cover with a cloth.
  • Let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in volume, about 1 hr.
  • Punch the dough to deflate and knead it for a few seconds on a wooden board or your counter. Cut the dough in half.
  • Cut each half into equal pieces. *You will get about 15 pieces per half
  • Roll each piece into a ball shape with your hand if you want them round. *I left some of mine square
  • Place them, 2" apart, on a baking pan or greased cookie sheet and let them rise again, about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes. *Start checking regularly at 10 min mark, you don't want them to brown too much. The bottom should be a nice golden brown.
  • Brush the rolls with a little honey diluted with water last 1-2 mins.
  • Serve with honey butter.
  • Enjoy!

Honey Glaze

  • Mix the water and honey.

Honey Butter

  • Mix together ingredients and serve with rolls
  • Refrigerate or freeze leftovers


You will notice that in the recipe I mention to brush a little bit of diluted honey on the rolls in the last minute or two of baking. This makes the rolls not only shine, but it adds a bit of sweetness to them with is amazing. That is why I also recommend serving them with Honey Butter. You can make the honey butter at home in just moments.
