A Thanksgiving favorite. They are even better the next day, cut in half, a little mayo, pepper, and leftover turkey, then off to the the mall at 6 am for Black Friday shopping.

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water in a bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 20 minutes.
  2. Mix flour, salt, butter, 1 cup white sugar, eggs, and yeast mixture, respectively, in a large bowl. Stir in scalded milk and pumpkin puree until dough consistency is reached. Shape dough into a ball and place in a bowl; cover bowl with a towel. Let rise for 90 minutes.
  3. Shape dough into 2 dozen knotted rolls; arrange on a baking sheet. Let rise again for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Whisk egg yolk with 1/2 teaspoon white sugar until dissolved; brush tops of rolls.
  6. Place baking sheet on the bottom rack of preheated oven; bake rolls for 10 minutes. Transfer baking sheet to top rack; bake until rolls are lightly browned, 6 to 10 more minutes.

I used half scalded milk and half buttermilk. The only other change I made was using 4 cups of Whole wheat flour and about the same amount of regular flour...the dough was pretty sticky so I had to add more flour. Excellent taste- my husband looked at the color said Pumpkin huh? But he had seconds!!

I liked this recipe, but found the rolls to be a little too sweet for my taste. Next time I will reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. Thank you, these will be great with our turkey dinner.

Sorry, I haven't made because I don't understand it - 1 cup sugar or as needed. Huh? How do I know how much is needed, or why there might be a different amount I'd want to use? Is there some secret? A minimum or maximum suggestion? The recipe is not clear to me.
