Pumpkin Butter Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Pumpkin Butter Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

The leaves are changing all around us, here in Indiana, leaving a festival of colors, bright crisp smells, and the inevitable parade of costumed children looking for treats. I wish it was appropriate for me to line up with the youngsters to collect candy at each door…. unfortunately I’m too old and have to curb my sweet tooth by supplying myself with my own treats. This however isn’t too difficult when I have a jar of pumpkin butter hanging out in the fridge, just crying to be spread on something.

This may be a new fall favorite in my home, and it’s all thanks to my torturous sweet tooth, that never stops hounding for the goods. Something about yeasted baked goods makes my heart pound and my taste buds salivate. The smell emitted by those little single cell organisms ,while they create their carbon dioxide, magically leavens dough and fills the kitchen with what my nose has labeled as pure happiness.

So I paired butter, yeasted dough, sugar, pumpkin butter, cinnamon, and frosting… to create something I wish I would have thought of sooner. I love finding new ways to use up leftovers in my pantry or refrigerator. If you take a moment to scan the contents in your kitchen,then  try and think of ways to use up things in ways you wouldn’t normally use them. You’ll be surprised what you come up with. Sometimes being creative with ingredients is easier than you think, and ideas can come from the strangest places. Sometimes it’s a flop and other times it’s a win. These Pumpkin Butter Cinnamon Rolls are most definitely a win.
