Pumpkin Rolls



I feel like I need to contribute to this blog since I have taken many great recipes from it! This is my favorite treat to make a few days before Thanksgiving. I make about 3 rolls at once and then freeze them. I like to cut and serve them frozen because me and my family like them better that way.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix together: 3/4 cup flower, 1 cup sugar, 2/3 cup pumpkin pie mix, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. 1 teaspoon baking soda.
Beat 3 eggs in a separate bowl and then add it to the dry mix. Beat everything together until nice and smooth.

Spread wax paper over a cookie sheet and spray it with baking spray. You will probably need to use to sheets and stagger them. Because one isn't wide enough.

Pour the pumpkin mixture onto the cookie sheet and smooth it out.

Bake in oven for 15 mn.

Meanwhile... spread out a clean hand towel and sprinkle it with powdered sugar. (using a sifter helps)

When cooking time is done immediately lay and flip the cooked pumpkin mixture directly on to the towel. then take off the wax paper.

Now roll up the pumpkin roll along with the towel up like a cinnamon roll to cool.


FROSTING

Beat together 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 8 oz cube of cream cheese, 1 Tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Unroll pumpkin roll and spread frosting over the top of it.

Roll it back up without the towel this time.

Wrap in tinfoil and place it in the freezer. Or enjoy it warm if you like.

Pumpkin rolls are a tradition in my family, too, although I have never made them myself. I might have to give it a try this year.
