"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"

"Used my ABM.. Easy and soft, fluffy rolls. Great colour and looks $$. Thanks"
"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."
"I have never made pumpkin rolls before, but I sure will again, They were just so good. I had a can of pumpkin sitting in my cupboard since last October, and I wanted to make something different with it. I had had this recipe in my cookbook and decided to give it a try since I make all my own bread and buns. The only thing I did differently was I increased the yeast to 2 tablespoons, I prefer to use more yeast as they rise faster. Miambao, thank you for sharing this great recipe, I will be making more tomorrow!...Kitten:)"
"I was a bit sceptical at first as I had never baked bread rolls before, but these came out wonderful! Theres no comparison to your own fresh bread coming out the oven! And the pumpkin addition was amazing as it is not overpowering at all. We don't get canned pumpkin as fresh pumpkin is in abundance here, so I cooked fresh cubes in the microwave and mashed with a potato masher. I think this would be a grand thanksgiving idea."
