Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Happy Wednesday! August flew by and I couldn’t be more excited to start a new month. September means we’re getting closer and closer to cooler weather. You may already be there, but we’re still melting here in AZ, which means I CANNOT wait for Fall. It’s my favorite season! In my opinion, nothing screams Fall more than yummy pumpkin recipes. Fortunately, this site is full of wonderful pumpkin recipes, such as these Frosted Pumpkin Bar and of course Lily’s Magic Pumpkin Cake. Both are amazing! Today’s recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls is equally delicious and is one we’ve been wanting to try for awhile.

My mom was the one to give these Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls a try, and we are so glad she did!! They are soft, gooey, and the perfect way to welcome in the fall season. We decided to replace the cinnamon with Pumpkin Spice and it really added to the yummy pumpkin flavor. I mean, just look at them – don’t you want one?! Try them out and let us know what you think.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Glaze Recipe:

The glaze on these pumpkin cinnamon rolls are unlike any other glaze. It’s not your traditional topping! This special glaze is made with a special ingredient. See if you can guess what it is. 😉

  • butter
  • confectioners sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • pumpkin pie spice

The addition of pumpkin pie spice is a GAME CHANGER. Honestly, a normal glaze just wouldn’t do it for these amazing pumpkin cinnamon rolls. A recipe like this needs a glaze that compliments it perfectly, and this pumpkin spice glaze is just that. Make the glaze by combining water, butter, and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Add powdered sugar and vanilla, then beat until smooth. Spread over the warm rolls after they’ve come out of the oven, and ENJOY! (You definitely will!)
