In the large mixing bowl, add the flour and the pumpkin pie spice. Stir until just combined. Cover and let sit in a warm place or at room temperature for at least an hour or until doubled in size. After the hour, the mixture will look puffy and should be doubled in size. No need to cover the dough in plastic wrap or put it in the fridge, the yeast will do all the magic!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Filling Ingredients

  1. butter
  2. brown sugar
  3. pumpkin spice
cinnamon dough with filling

Place the dough on a well-floured surface. Roll the dough into a rectangle about 12”x24”. Spread softened butter over the dough. Next, add the brown sugar pumpkin spice mixture on top. Love nutmeg or ginger? Feel free to sprinkle those seasonings on as well (but that’s completely optional).

Rolled up cinnamon dough

Roll the dough up, making sure the seam is down, and using a sharp knife, cut into slices. Place the cinnamon rolls in the buttered baking dish (2 if you have them). A few tablespoons of butter works! You can use cooking spray, but butter helps prevent the rolls from sticking best:) Unsalted butter, or any butter you prefer, will work. Cover the rolls in the pans and let sit for 30 minutes. Bake the rolls in the oven until golden brown. While the rolls are baking make the glaze.

In a medium size bowl, beat the cream cheese. Add the powdered sugar and beat again until combined. Beat in whole milk, maple syrup, and salt. Note- you can also top these cinnamon rolls with a premade cream cheese frosting if you’re in a pinch! Glaze the rolls as soon as they come out of the oven.
