Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Frosting

In my quest to find new recipes to use pumpkin with, I stumbled upon a dessert that I had to try. While it requires a lot of ingredients and quite a bit of time, trust me when I say it’s worth it!

I tweaked the original recipe I found and added more pumpkin, making my rolls more orange. I need to take that into consideration next time because the dough didn’t roll as well as I hoped it would. Luckily, these rolls tasted delicious no matter how messy they looked.

EASY! Pumpkin Muffins

I’ve been staring at the falling leaves this past week, craving pumpkin. When my homemade pumpkin spice latte’s weren’t enough, I searched in my cabinets and found canned pumpkin. Then, thanks to the internet, I found this amazing recipe at Very Best Baking. What came of it was amazing and left everyone wanting more.

I’d like to think that I’m an amazing cook and I made these from scratch. Sadly, that’s not the case. I simply used a box that I found at my local grocery store. I checked Amazon, but I couldn’t find it there. While I am against buying from Wal*Mart while they suck so bad at paying their employees fair wages, but this was the only site that sold it online for those of you that might want to make them yourself.

What really made these so yummy is that I filled them with the frosting. If you have wondered how to fill your cupcakes without destroying them, it’s very easy. You need a pastry bag filled with your icing. If you don’t have one, just use a storage bag or a sandwich bag with the tip cut. Put the bag in a tall glass and scoop the icing  into the bag to fill it without a lot of mess. Push the tip with the icing into the center and fill. Easy peasy. My first two high school jobs were in ice cream (Friendly’s and Dairy Queen), so I try to put my icing on as if I were filling a cup or bowl with ice cream.
