This Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Recipe is a great take on the traditional breakfast roll or snack. We bring it one step further by topping it off with a delicious RumChata glaze that really makes this Fall treat something special.


  • 4 cups flour
  • ½ cup warm milk
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree + ¼ cup pumpkin puree for filling
  • 4 ½ teaspoons yeast
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup softened butter + 2 Tablespoon Softened Butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon + ½ teaspoon for top of rolls

For RumChata Glaze

  • ⅓ Cup Butter
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ Cup RumChata


  1. Heat milk so it is warm. 30 seconds in the microwave should do it.
  2. In large mixing bowl, add 2 cups flour, salt, sugar, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, milk, yeast, 1/4 cup butter, egg
  3. Using hand blender, mix on medium for 1 minutes
  4. Add 2 cups of flour and mix by hand for another minute
  5. Mix with bread hook medium for 3 minutes or knead for 10 minutes
  6. In large buttered dish, add dough, put in warm place (I place in oven with light on), and rise for 90 minutes
  7. Roll out dough so that it has rectacular dimensions of 15 inches by 10 and even thickness.
  8. Spread 1 tablespoon of softened butter over rolled out dough
  9. In separate dough, mix together ¼ cup pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to make filling.
  10. Evenly spread filling over dough.
  11. Lengthwise (from the 15" side) roll up dough and try to keep wet filling from spreading over outside of dough. You may have some leak out when you get to the end of rolling. It is ok, just wipe it up.
  12. Using tooth floss, cut dough into 15 equal pieces. Ideally, this would be 1 " pieces.
  13. In buttered 9 x 13 x 2 pan. Lay the fifteen cinammon rolls, 3 per roll
  14. Place in warm location and allow to rise for 30 minutes. I use my oven and turn the light on.
  15. After 30 minutes, remove the cinnamon rolls and preheat oven to 350° Farenheit.
  16. Add rolls to oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  17. With about 15 minutes left, start on RumChata glaze by adding 1/3 cup butter to a pot over medium heat
  18. Once butter is melted, add powdered sugar and stir to prevent burning.
  19. Add RumChata and stir until smooth
  20. Remove from heat
  21. When rolls are done, remove from oven and evenly pour RumChata glaze over rolls. If needed, use a rubber scraper to evenly spread.
  22. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  23. Serve!


  • Bread flour works great for these, but all-purpose flour would also be fine.
  • Have patience when rolling out the dough to help make everything even and as a rectangle.
  • Use dental floss to cut your rolls. I sometimes use two different strands just because the dry thread is easier to handle.
  • You can knead by hand, but using a KitchenAid bread hook is so nice for making the dough.
