Pumpkin Dinner Rolls

YIELD: 16 rolls / BAKE TIME: 45 minutes / Print Recipe

Directions

… these pretty rolls are only slightly sweet, with a subtle hint of spice and pumpkin flavour – a delicious addition to the Thanksgiving dinner table! They are arguably even better as turkey sandwiches or with turkey soup the next day.

Dissolve 1 tsp. of the sugar in the warm milk; add yeast and let stand 10 minutes, or until frothy.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, salt, cloves and nutmeg. Add the yeast mixture, pumpkin puree, melted butter, oil and egg; stir until well combined. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about ten minutes. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, turning once to coat dough completely. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow dough to rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 16 equal sized portions. Roll each into a ball. Place on a greased baking sheet (or in a greased 9″x13″x2″ pan) and cover. Allow to rise for another 45 minutes to 1 hour, until doubled in bulk once again.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.   Beat egg yolk with 1 tbsp water, and brush evenly over rolls. Bake in centre of oven for approximately 45 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Best served warm.

You may reheat the rolls by wrapping with aluminum foil and baking at 325°F for 10 minutes, 30 minutes if frozen.
