Pumpkin Eggnog Rolls

I needed to use up some eggnog, so I swapped it for milk in my sweet roll recipe. Even people who usually don’t go for eggnog go back for seconds of these yummy frosted treats. —Rebecca Soske, Douglas, Wyoming

    1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • FROSTING:
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons eggnog
  • 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • In a large bowl, mix sugar, yeast, salt and 2 cups flour. In a small saucepan, heat eggnog, butter and pumpkin to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add eggs; beat on high 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • In a small bowl, mix sugar, cardamom and allspice. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into an 18x12-in. rectangle. Brush with butter to within 1/2 in. of edges; sprinkle with sugar mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices.
  • Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan, cut side down. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake rolls 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, eggnog, pumpkin and cardamom until blended. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Spread over warm rolls.
