Aren't these rolls the cutest thing ever?! The best part about these rolls is that they are SUPER easy to make, but that can be our little secret. I saw a recipe that made homemade pumpkin dough and then shaped the rolls into pumpkin shapes. I decided to take a big shortcut and use frozen bread dough. These rolls are a great way to let the kids help with the Thanksgiving dinner. They are seriously that easy!
I made these rolls two different ways. One with just an egg wash and another dipped in melted butter and a pumpkin spice/sugar mixture. They are wonderful either way. These are definitely going to be on our Thanksgiving table!
Pumpkin Shaped Rolls
- 12 Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 6 pecan halves
- 1/4 cup butter, melted (optional)
- 1/4 cup sugar (optional)
- 1 Tbsp pumpkin spice (optional)
Thaw rolls. Cut 7 slits around each roll, cutting all the way through the dough and leaving the center in tact. Poke a small hole in the center of the roll. Cover and let rise until double in size.
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together egg and milk. Brush egg wash over rolls. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown.
**Optional** Melt butter bowl. Combine sugar and pumpkin spice in a small bowl. Dip roll into butter and then into sugar mixture.
Cut pecan halves in half and stick one half into the hole in the center of each roll.
