Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

The kids picked so many pumpkins from our garden yesterday.
It put us in the mood for a pumpkin treat, so I whipped up this delicious recipe for breakfast this morning.
I used the last of my frozen pumpkin puree...tutorial coming later this week:).

I love baking with pumpkin and was so bummed out that this year our pumpkin patch didn't turn out so well. Oh-well. I'm still going to puree some "store bought" pumpkins. It's such a fun tradition. I've never made any of these kind of cinnamon rolls before. My husband is the cinnamon roll expert in our family though. I'll have to show him this recipe. :) Sounds delish!

These look fabulous! I just did up my first (of this season) pumpkin puree last night and made pumpkin, apple, pecan muffins today! Mmmm pumpkin.... oh and roasted the first of many batches of seeds. I think I will surprise my hubby with your recipe here for this weekend! I really enjoy all your recipes and great ideas! :D
