  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 2 hours 5 mins
  • Yield: 12 rolls 1x
  • Category: Bread
  • Method: Bake
  • Cuisine: French


  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) Red Star PLATINUM yeast
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup warm water (about 120 to 130 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened and cut into cubes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water (for egg wash)


  1. In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, combine 1 3/4 cups flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and yeast. Add pumpkin, warm water, butter and eggs. Stir, adding just enough of remaining 1 1/2 cups flour until a dough forms that pulls away from sides of bowl.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough by hand 10 minutes until smooth, soft, elastic and only slightly sticky; OR, knead dough with dough hook attachment in stand mixer on medium speed 5 minutes until smooth, soft, elastic and only slightly sticky. Shape dough into a ball, then place in a large lightly greased bowl; turn to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place 1 hour until doubled.
  3. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Punch down risen dough, then divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball, then place on prepared baking sheet spaced at least 2 inches apart. Cover with a tea towel or lightly greased plastic wrap and let rise 30 minutes until doubled.
  4. Just before baking, use scissors or a sharp serrated knife to score tops of rolls about 1/4-inch deep. Brush tops and sides of rolls with egg wash. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
