    mianbao's Note:

    These are very light rolls pleasantly flavored with pumpkin, that could be served with a main dish. Home cooked pumpkin could be used instead of the canned pumpkin. BTW, one 15 oz can of pumpkin contains about 2 cups. This recipe yields about 3 pounds of dough. Prep time includes rising times. Each roll is 1 1/2 oz

    10. 10
      Do the same with the remaining dough.
    11. 11
      Let rise until double, about 45 minutes.

      Very easy and delicious! Between my stand mixer and warming drawer to proof the dough, these were hardly any work. Love the pumpkin flavor and a bit of extra nutrition from it. Moist, crusty, fluffy, just a terrific dinner roll. The pumpkin flavor is so mild these go great with just about any dish. The only changes I'll make next time are a pinch more salt and an egg wash as the tops were quite pale in color.

      Edited to add fresh pumpkin puree as an alternative for canned pumpkin. You can also get a stronger flavor by substituting butternut squash puree. Watch out - this recipe makes a lot of rolls; you may want to halve it.
