Last week I made my favorite baked treat-cinnamon rolls. I just adore them… they´re soft and fluffy and a little sticky from the sugar& cinnamon inside. The smell while they are baking and come out of the oven is amazing and your whole house smells like christmas. Generally I prefer cinnamon rolls without a glaze, so I can bring them with me and don’t get sticky hands. Well anyways I made two sheets of rolls and I added some pureed leftover pumpkin to some of my cinnamon rolls – they tasted absolutely amazing.
This is what you will need for (one tray of cinnamon rolls):
- 85 grams butter
- 120 ml whole milk, warmed
- 1 package of dry yeast dry yeast
- 440 grams all-purpose flour

- 1 tsp. salt

- 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

Melt butter and let it slightly brown. Add milk and set aside. Combine flour, sugar, salt, spices and yeast in a large bowl. Add egg ,(pumpkin puree) and milk mixture either using an electric mixer or a cooking spoon and stir/mix until well combined. When using as spoon knead dough with your hands until smooth. Cover with a kitchen towel and set aside to rise for bout 30-60 minutes (until dough has doubled).

Then bake in oven for about 30 minutes until golden brown and let cool out.
