Quick Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Quick Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Sweet rolls are a favorite around our house and these Quick Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls were no exception.  I based the recipe on the 40 minute hamburger buns from Taste of Home’s Best of Country Breads cookbook.  You’ve noticed I use this recipe frequently. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of yeast which seems like a lot but it allows you to forgo the rising time.  I get great results making dinner rolls, sweet rolls or hamburger buns.

The kids were out of school on Friday and they helped pour concrete sidewalks around the house.  I was thrilled that they were home to help.  Pouring concrete is way beyond my skill level and puts new meaning to hard work.  I stayed busy in the kitchen and attempted to keep the dogs from running through the wet concrete.  The big dogs weren’t so bad but my little weanie dog escaped and right down the middle of the wet concrete sidewalk she went.  I captured her, washed off the concrete and finished up lunch.  We had cheeseburger soup, which the kids declared as something I should blog (I’ll have to make it again to share it.) and these Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls for dessert. They guys were happy campers or I guess I should say happy concrete finishers.
