Golden Pumpkin Rolls

These delicious rolls are best served warm, they complement any holiday menu.


24 servings


2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110°F to 115°F/43°C to 46°C)
1/2 teaspoon granulated (white) sugar
3/4 cup warm milk (110°F to 115°F/43°C to 46°C)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 cups all-purpose flour


In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Sprinkle with sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add milk, brown sugar, pumpkin, butter, salt, spices and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 2 inch apart on greased baking sheets.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Additional Information

Dough may be shaped into two loaves and baked in greased 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pans for 25 to 30 minutes.
