Using a dough hook is the best way to get this cinnamon roll dough ready to be baked. It mixes it well but doesn’t over mix and results in a great texture, too. Then once you add in the combination of brown sugar and cinnamon, you just might start salivating!

Don’t forget to let the rolls get to room temperature once done baking so that you can easily add on the cream cheese icing without it melting off!

Even though I’m always tempted to make up this recipe for myself, my boys really love it as well. And since I’m that type of caring and sharing person, I’ll always have a few left especially for them.

Is canned pumpkin and pumpkin puree the same thing?

It’s not. Pumpkin puree is pretty much like it sounds – pureed pumpkin. But buying canned pumpkin can mean that it’s also mashed up squash instead of actual pumpkin.

What is the best way to reheat leftover cinnamon rolls?

As cinnamon rolls age, they will start to dry out a bit. The easiest way to reheat them is to add them to the microwave for a short amount of time.

Just a few seconds will have them soft and moist again in no time at all.

Can you substitute pumpkin pie spice for cinnamon?

If you’re a fan of cinnamon, then you know how it can add an extra level of warmth and flavor to any dish. But what happens when you don’t have enough cinnamon at home or just want to mix things up a bit? Enter pumpkin pie spice.

Typically made up of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice, pumpkin pie spice can definitely be substituted for cinnamon in a recipe. However, keep in mind that the flavor may be slightly different due to the additional spices.

It’s always a good idea to taste and adjust as needed before serving. So next time you’re in a pinch, don’t be afraid to give pumpkin pie spice a try in place of cinnamon.

Who knows, you might just discover a new favorite flavor combination.

What’s the difference between cinnamon buns and rolls?

Cinnamon buns and rolls are often used interchangeably, but there are slight differences between the two. Cinnamon buns are usually larger, fluffier, and moist with a gooey, sticky center made with caramelized brown sugar and cinnamon.

The dough for cinnamon buns is typically sweet and richer with the use of eggs and butter.

On the other hand, rolls are smaller and denser with a bread-like texture. The filling for rolls is also less gooey, typically just a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar.

Roll dough is often simpler in comparison, made with fewer ingredients.

While both are delicious treats for any occasion, the next time you go to a bakery or decide to bake at home, keep in mind the differences between the two and choose wisely based on your cravings.

Are sticky buns the same as cinnamon rolls?

Sticky buns and cinnamon rolls may seem similar at first glance, but they are actually two distinct pastries.

While both are made from sweet dough and feature a cinnamon-sugar filling, sticky buns are typically topped with a gooey caramel or brown sugar glaze and often contain nuts or raisins.

Cinnamon rolls, on the other hand, are typically topped with a cream cheese or vanilla icing and don’t contain any additional toppings within the roll.

While the two pastries may be easily confused, each has its own unique characteristics that set it apart from the other.

Are cinnamon rolls an American thing?

The sweet and gooey cinnamon roll is a beloved treat enjoyed by people all around the world, but many may wonder if it is truly an American creation.

While cinnamon rolls likely have origins in Sweden, its popularity in America cannot be denied. In fact, it is believed that the first cinnamon roll was brought to the United States by Swedish immigrants in the 1800s.

However, the modern-day version of this pastry, with its generous amount of icing and quintessential American size, is indeed a distinctly American twist on the classic recipe.

Today, cinnamon rolls can be found in every corner of the country, from small-town bakeries to big-city chains, cementing its place as a staple American treat.

Why do people eat chili with cinnamon rolls?

If you’ve ever heard of the strange yet strangely irresistible combination of chili and cinnamon rolls, you might be wondering why anyone would ever think to combine two such seemingly disparate dishes.

Believe it or not, the pairing actually has its roots in the Midwest, where chili and cinnamon rolls were frequently served together in school cafeterias and roadside diners.

While the exact origin of the tradition is unclear, many people speculate that the sweet and savory flavors of the two dishes complement each other perfectly, with the soft and fluffy cinnamon rolls serving as the perfect accompaniment to the hearty, spicy chili.

While the combination may seem odd at first, it’s worth giving it a try – who knows, you may just discover a new favorite dish!

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

This pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls recipe is the best version of a classic breakfast dish.

In fact, you might want to make two batches… because everyone will be asking for more.


  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup milk

For the Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree

For the Glaze:

  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk


  1. Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and greasing a 11X9 inch pan with butter.
  2. Once that is done, take and put in the flour and butter in a large bowl and blend using a fork or pastry blender. Once it's done it should look like loose sand. Then you'll want to add in the sugar, baking soda, baking powder and stir.
  3. Next, take and add in the milk and stir. This will start to form the dough. Take the dough and put onto a floured surface and knead to form a ball.
  4. Make the cinnamon roll filling by adding in butter, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and ground cinnamon into a bowl and whisking.
  5. Then add in the pumpkin puree and stir.
  6. Take the dough and separate it into two balls that are the same size. Take one of the balls and roll it out until it's about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Take and spread half of the butter mixture on the top and roll it into a log shape. Then use a knife and cut it into 6 pieces. Put each piece in your pan and leave a little bit of space in between each one.
  8. Repeat the exact same steps with the other half of dough.
  9. Put the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. (or until golden-brown)
  10. While they are baking, make the glaze by beating the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk together.
  11. Once the rolls are done baking in the oven, let cool a bit and spread the glaze out on top.
