Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Does that sound good to you? 
It did to me. 

The recipe reminded me of pumpkin pie and it had great reviews so I was really excited to try it.

It didn't turn out the way I had hoped.  I blame it on my cinnamon roll recipe.  Since I've been making dough with that recipe, it has raised my expectations.  The Pumpkin rolls were dry and heavy.  Not light like my cinnamon rolls.  The spices were a little strong as well. 

Oh well I guess you live and learn.  I am going to try to adapt my cinnamon roll recipe to become a pumpkin roll recipe.  I think if I modify it in the right way, I won't lose the lightness of the dough but will get the pumpkin pie flavor I was hoping for.

I'll fill you in on how they turn out when I get around to making them.  Wish me luck :)
