    Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4-3/4 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • STREUSEL:
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the pumpkin, sugar, butter, salt and 4-3/4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12x10-in. rectangle. Combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice; cut in butter until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup.
  • Sprinkle remaining streusel over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges; press down lightly. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal.
  • Cut each into 12 slices. Place cut side down in 2 greased 13x9-in. baking pans. Sprinkle with reserved streusel. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over rolls. Serve warm.
