Well, summer officially ends on Thursday … and I couldn’t be happier! Bring on the fall temperatures! Bring on the sweaters! Bring on the apple picking! Bring on the baking! Bring on the pumpkin spice including these delicious homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Cinnamon Rolls with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting!
There’s no better way to welcome cooler weather than with cinnamon rolls! I decided to add some fall flavor by making them Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls and they are SO good!
And look at all of that cinnamon just oozing out. I do NOT skimp on the cinnamon!
These would be perfect on a Sunday morning before going apple picking or to the pumpkin patch! Both of which I intend to do this year! Every year for the past six years I say we have to go apple picking and we’ve only been once. And it was hot. And I tried to make it seems like fall, so I wore a sweater. What a fail! This year, I’m hoping for an overcast Sunday where I can make these cinnamon rolls for breakfast, put on my boots and sweater, and go pick some apples and NOT get sunburned!
Have you ever made homemade cinnamon rolls before? They’re easier than you would think! The hardest part is the wait – you have to wait for the dough to rise for an hour! So, just be sure to plan ahead or make the night before.
You’ll need a few ingredients:
- Active dry yeast
- Brown sugar
- Bread flour
- Canned pumpkin
- Cream cheese
- Powdered sugar
I like to cut my cinnamon rolls using (clean, obviously) dental floss. I just find it really simple and easier to use than a knife which could flatten the cinnamon roll.
And then I covered my Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls with a homemade Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting!
These Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls be great for a Sunday Brunch, book club, or just a lazy weekend at home with the kids!
