Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls w/ Evil Honey Caramel Sauce


Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls w/Honey Caramel Sauce

Cinnamon Rolls~
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
Cinnamon filling~
1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp butter

In small saucepan over med-high heat brown 2 tbsp butter. (do not burn so watch closely) Once browned add 1/2 cup milk & heat through. Allow to cool slightly, around 110 degrees. Once cooled combine warmed butter/milk with yeast and sugar and set aside to proof. (about 10 min) When ready add pumpkin, salt, & 1 cup flour; stir till combined. Add the rest of your flour 1/2 cup at a time. Knead on a well floured surface for about 5 minutes or till dough is smooth but slightly sticky. Set dough in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let dough rise 60-90 minutes. (or doubled in size)
In the meantime for the filling- brown 2 tbsp butter; combine 1 cup sugar, cinnamon, & nutmeg in a bowl. Add browned butter mixing till all the sugar & butter are combined well. Set aside. Once dough is risen roll out onto a floured surface into a 20x12 rectangle. Sprinkle all of your cinnamon sugar filling over top and to the edges. Roll up rectangle from the long side. Cut into about 12 pieces. (you may get a few more or less depending on how big or little you cut them) *Dental floss is a great tool for cutting your dough into rolls* Place cut rolls into a greased 13x9 inch pan; cover with plastic wrap and let rise about 30 min. Once risen remove plastic wrap and bake for 25-30 minutes @ 350 degrees or till golden brown. Drizzle with Honey Caramel Sauce! Best served warm.
