The Best Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls



The best pumpkin cinnamon roll – soft, light, fluffy and there’s just enough pumpkin flavor to notice, but not so much that it overwhelms the inherent beauty of classic cinnamon rolls. Topped with cream cheese glaze, they’re totally irresistible.

INGREDIENTS

Dough
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
2 1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast (one 1/4-ounce packet, I use Red Star Platinum)
pinch salt, to taste
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg, lightly whisked

Filling
6 tablespoons unsalted butter (3/4 of 1 stick), very soft – let it sit out while dough rises
1 to 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
2+ tablespoons cinnamon (I used 3+)

Cream Cheese Glaze
4 ounces brick-style cream cheese (lite is okay), softened – let it sit out on the second rise or while rolls bake
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
pinch salt, optional and to taste (helps balance the sweetness)
about 3 to 4 tablespoons half-and-half or cream, or as needed for consistency
