These gluten free Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls have pumpkin puree in the soft yeast bread, rolled around a buttery filling with pumpkin pie spice and sugar. Sugar, spice, and everything nice.
After the startling discovery of my husband’s pumpkin secret, I’ve taken it upon myself to try to introduce him to new treats that are filled with pumpkin flavour. I figured, maybe he just hasn’t tried the right thing yet, maybe that’s why he doesn’t get my love of all things pumpkin.
Paired with the warm notes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, things that contain pumpkin just make me smile this time of year. That includes Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer, and the pumpkin spiced tea bags that I recently purchased.
We’ve tried them all since discovered his true feelings about pumpkin, and not one of these things made his heart flutter for All-Things-Pumpkin like it does for me. (Side note: Some of these things even have me, a pumpkin lover, very underwhelmed. Sad, but true.)
I had one last plan. My final attempt at getting him to come over to the pumpkin side with me. But, would it work?
I decided to hit his weakness – gluten free cinnamon buns. Only, these cinnamon rolls have pumpkin in the dough and instead of just cinnamon, they are filled warming pumpkin pie spice. Would it be enough?
The verdict? Pumpkin is now welcomed by him in Crustless Pumpkin Pie form and these gluten free Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls.
