With fall here and the weather outside becoming chilly we are celebrating Sunday Supper with warming trend recipes to keep you cozy when the temperature drops. One of my favorite ways to stay toasty this time of year is Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls With Maple Cream Cheese Frosting warm out of the oven first thing in the morning.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls are assembled the night before then refrigerated and allowed to rise while the oven preheats in the morning making them the perfect way to start even a busy day.

It makes climbing out of bed on the weekends all the more enticing! 

The pumpkin is perfectly balanced with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg with a sticky gooey cinnamon, brown sugar, honey filling and covered with a sweet maple cream cheese frosting.

  16. Just wondering...should I let them rise again after putting them in the pans, before putting in the fridge? I made them and put them in the fridge right away and when I baked them the next morning they didn’t rise much. I let them sit out for 30 min before putting in the over per instructions but they didn’t rise much when baking.

    1. Hi Jenny! They might need a little longer in the morning to rise if they didn't puff up. There's so many factors that could effect the last rise including room temperature and how cold the fridge is. If it was me I might heat the oven up to about 100 degrees, turn it off with the door open, and give the rolls a 30 minute kick start. Before removing rolls and preheating the oven. Yeast can be a little difficult at times. You don't want them to rise too much before going into the fridge or they could deflate. I assume your first rise went well? Thanks, Serena
