Pumpkin Pie Rolls

Jasey M From jaseyscrazydaisy Wed, Nov 19 2014

Pumpkin Pie Rolls!  These little Pumpkin Pie Rolls are so adorable! Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Cloves, Ginger...They are perfect for Fall! Pumpkin treats are a favorite at my house, especially pumpkin pie. Cinnamon rolls and sticky buns are also among some of our favorites and so it seemed only natural to combine the two for a fun and festive treat. With their sweet and spicy filling and soft baked bread, these Pumpkin Pie Rolls are the perfect balance of pumpkin pie and cinnamon roll. They make a fabulous breakfast treat, you can either thaw the dough overnight and bake them fresh or make them the day before. They would be amazing paired with this frosting  or you could add a little sweetened whipped cream or a spoon of ice cream and have a fabulous dessert.  These sweet buns are also great as a snack, or at least my kids sure think so. You are going to love these Pumpkin Pie Rolls because they are not only delicious but they are very easy to make.  Let's get started. 

First, spray a cupcake or muffin tin with no stick cooking spray. Set one roll in each of the cups. You will need twelve.

Pumpkin Pie Rolls - Step One Let them raise as directed on the package, for three to five hours, until they have doubled in size. Like this.  Pumpkin Pie Rolls - Step Two When your dough is almost ready, prepare your pumpkin filling. Set it aside and then use your fingers to push down the center of each roll and press the dough around the sides and bottom of the cup to make a little dough cup. Pumpkin Pie Rolls - Step Three Next, fill each dough cup with 1 Tablespoon of the pumpkin filling that you made while the dough rising. Pumpkin Pie Rolls - Step Four Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Serve as is, slathered with frosting, a dollop of sweetened whipped cream, or a spoon of ice cream. That's all there is to making these Pumpkin Pie Rolls to treat your family with.

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Summer is officially over and fall has arrived here in North Texas! Down in the south our seasons tend to change a bit later than most parts. When we're enjoying fall most states already have snow on the ground. It doesn't seem to last very long, so I savor each and every cool day that comes our way.   

 Make Thanksgiving morning special with Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls!

Fall and winter are definitely my two favorite baking seasons. I usually head into the kitchen around Halloween and don't come out until New Years. This time of year goes by quickly, so I try and enjoy every moment. I can't believe that in just 9 short days be will be celebrating Thanksgiving.  


Hopefully everyone has their holiday menu worked out. It can get crazy this time of year, so having a plan is a must. During the holidays I always prepare a special breakfast for my family.  It’s never too fancy since my time is limited, but it's always something warm and festive. In the past I've made an overnight French toast casserole or an easy breakfast egg casserole. 

 Make Thanksgiving morning special with Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls!

I tend to steer towards the overnight casseroles since all the prep work is done the night before. This year I plan on making these festive Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls pictured above. November is my scheduled guest post on Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Blog, so I knew I wanted to make something for an easy Thanksgiving breakfast.   


This recipe for pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls starts with Rhodes Frozen Bread dough and a few other pantry and fridge staples. I love the simplicity of using frozen bread dough, so I always keep plenty in the freezer. Since the bread dough needs to thaw, remove a frozen loaf from the freezer, and place it in the refrigerator the night before so it can thaw out.  


In the morning all you will have to do is prepare the pumpkin pie filling, roll out the thawed dough, assemble the rolls, and let them rise. Before you know it your family will be enjoying piping hot pumpkin sweet rolls in no time.

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls


To get started gather all your ingredients together: You will need 1 - loaf of Rhodes frozen bread dough,  cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, butter, cream cheese, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, powdered sugar and milk.

 Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Start by lightly greasing two 8 inch pie plates or one 13x9 inch baking pan with non stick spray. Set pans aside. In a medium size bowl add the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. Mix together until blended and set pumpkin pie filling aside.   

Spray the counter with non- stick baking spray or dust with flour. Roll the thawed bread dough into a 10x15- inch rectangle or as close as you can roll it out to that size. Using a pastry brush spread the melted butter over the dough to within 1 – inch of outside of the dough.

Using an offset spatula spread the pumpkin pie mixture over the dough to within 1 – inch of the outside of the dough. Roll up tightly starting at the longest side. Using dental floss (UN waxed) or scissors cut the dough into 14 equal pieces about 1 – 1 ½ inches wide.

Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Place each roll cut side down into each pie plate or pan. Cover rolls with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with baking spray.

 Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls


Let rolls rise until double in size (about 1 hour).  Remove plastic wrap and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.  Remove rolls from oven and cool on baking rack.

When rolls are completely cooled prepare the cream cheese frosting and lightly frost each roll.

Pesto Parmesan Rolls

Natalie From thecreativemom Wed, Nov 12 2014


Hey there! It's me, Natalie, from The Creative Mom. I'm so excited to be here today sharing this quick and easy recipe for Pesto Parmesan Rolls.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to come up with a recipe that put a fun twist on traditional Thanksgiving rolls. And these Pesto Parmesan Rolls do just that! 



12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls 

1/2 cup prepared pesto

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese



Place the frozen rolls out on sprayed surface to thaw. You want them thawed, but still cold. 



Combine the rolls together and roll out into a 9x10 rectangle. Spread pesto on top.


Then sprinkle the shredded Parmesan Cheese on top the pesto.


And roll the whole thing up into a big tube and place on a baking sheet.

(Note: You can bake the whole thing in a tube like I did, or cut it into slices before baking. Either way will work fine, but slicing it first will prevent the center from being too doughy while the edges are more cooked.)


Place in a 400 degree oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown on top.

 And enjoy!

Ashlee From ashleemarie Mon, Nov 10 2014

There's not much I love more than baking, and fall foods are my favorite. Comfort foods, right? Anyway I've been obsessed with braids since I attended a Rhodes event a few years ago! So when I got the chance to guest post here I knew exactly what I wanted to make! Last week I got together with several other local bloggers and threw a Bloggers Thanksgiving, all sharing some of the recipes we use in our favorite meal of the year! Visit my site this week for my other Thanksgiving recipes with a full round up post on Friday. Trust me you WANT to get some of these recipes. Today I'm sharing my classic green bean casserole. pumpkin and pecan go so well together, and they go great in this braid This makes a great dessert anytime in the fall, but this year I'm making it for Thanksgiving! It's more savory than super sweet, not like pumpkin pie. But my husband, who isn't into desserts like I am, thinks its perfection on a plate.   It smells divine as well! make this pumpkin pecan braid with rhodes bread dough for a fast and easy treat in bowl mix pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and egg yolk, stir in the pecans sprinkle counter with flour roll loaf into 12x16 inch rectangle cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10-15 mins making a braid is easy, esp when you use rhodes bead dough.  doesnt hurt that its beautiful spread the filling lengthwise down the center of the dough in a 4 inch strip with scissors or a sharp knife make cuts 1 1/2 inches apart on the long sides of the dough within 1/2 inch of the filing begin the braid by folding the top and bottom over a bit, then starting at the top cross the left the right sides over themselves, slightly diagonally, down the loaf "braiding" tuck the last set under the loaf braids are always sure to impress, esp around the holiday's, like this pumpkin pecan beauty mix the egg yolks and brush over the top bake at 350 30-35 mins Beat the glaze and spread over the warm braid, sprinkle with pecans cool slightly and serve It's that time of the year, pumpkin season, add pecans and bread and your in for a treat

Chili Cone Queso

Staci Potter From www.thepotters-place Wed, Nov 05 2014
We are a family who loves Disneyland.  With the new Cars Land open, it feels like you are right in the middle of the movie.  Have you tried the Chili Cone Queso at the Cozy Cone Motel?
It is basically a cone shaped bread bowl that is filled with chili and cheese.  You can either eat the cone as you go or eat your chili with a spoon then eat the cone.
To make the bread cone you have to make a few molds out of foil.
 Just crumple the foil up and shape it into a cone.  Roll it along the counter to make it as smooth as possible.  I made a few so I could bake several at a time.
Next, spray the counter  lightly with non-stick cooking spray.  Take 1 1/2 Rhodes Texas rolls (thawed but still cold) and roll them into one long rope.  Starting at the pointy end of the foil mold, start wrapping the dough rope in a spiral pattern around it.  It doesn't matter if you make the rope thick or thin.
Make sure there are no holes or gaps between the rope sections.  Once you've made your cones, place them on a cookie sheet and bake them at 350 until golden brown.  Watch them closely so they don't burn.  I like to lightly rub butter over the cone about 8 min into baking. This helps to make the cone crispy and gives it that golden look.
Remove the cones from the oven and let them cool a little.  While they are still warm twist the bread cone off the mold.  It it gets stuck use a butter knife to loosen the edges.  The smoother your mold the easier it is to get the cone off.
Fill with chili or soup of any kind and enjoy.

Thanksgiving Shaped Rolls

Kristi From ishouldbemoppingthefloor Mon, Nov 03 2014
Having a fun variety of rolls on Thanksgiving means there's a little something for everyone. These three styles are simple to make the morning of the big feast...and they'll taste like you've been working on them all day long!

Shaped Rolls
One staple on every Thanksgiving table is definitely a big basket of yeasty-delicious rolls. I'm not going to lie...even as a kid, I'd probably choose rolls over anything else as my number one food. I was carb-a-licious even back then!  Using one bag of Rhodes Dinner Rolls, you can make three unique roll styles to delight each of your guests. See the details below.

Shaped Roll Supplies
For these rolls, you'll need one bag of Rhodes dinner rolls (thawed, but still cold), cooking spray, a kitchen brush & shears, two tablespoons of melted butter, flour, and clear, plastic wrap.

Cloverleaf Rolls
 My first and favorite roll style is the Cloverleaf. They serve these at a cafeteria restaurant that I love...and I've eaten them since I was a kid. A few years ago, I realized how easy these are to make using Rhodes Dinner Rolls. 

Shaped Cloverleaf Rolls
1. Take a thawed roll and snip it in half with your kitchen shears. You'll want to go ahead and snip several rolls in half like this.
2. Ball up the roll halves.
3. Place three balls of dough into a muffin tin hole that has been sprayed with cooking spray, forming one roll.
4. Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and let rolls rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Butterflake Rolls
 These Butterflake Rolls are so melt-in-your-mouth delicious, your dinner guests won't even have to add extra butter to them. And, they're simple to make.

Butterflake Roll
1. Take two Rhodes dinner roll doughs and combine them into one roll.
2. Using your kitchen shears, snip a slit into the middle of the roll, but do not cut it all the way in half.
3. Make two more similar cuts on each side of the middle cut, for a total of five snips.
4. Place the cut roll into a cooking-sprayed muffin tin and brush melted butter into each cut. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Swirl Rolls
 These Swirl Rolls are something a little unexpected! 
Check out how easy they are to make below.

Swirl Rolls
1. Combine two Rhodes dinner rolls and form one long rope.
2. Roll your rope into flour.
3. Form your roll into a coil and place in sprayed muffin tin.
4. Make the top look a bit ice cream-swirlish!
5. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

So, what is your favorite holiday roll?

Personal Pot Pie

Debi From recipesformyboys Mon, Oct 27 2014

We all have those days when time is stretched to the limit, yet we feel the need for comfort in the form of food.  These Personal Pot Pies, made easily with Rhodes Dinner Rolls and a few handy ingredients, are the perfect solution!

Personal Pot Pie

I bet these Personal Pot Pies freeze wonderfully to make an easier than ever, supper fix....don't you?  If I had any left, I would have frozen some this time.  Alas, my boys were hungry little (don't them I said that) guys and ate them all!  I will definitely double, if not triple next time....after all, there are 36 Rhodes Dinner Rolls per package!

Now, let's get started making these little hand pies of comfort, shall we? 

Personal Pot Pie

 Thaw to room temperature. Roll out and cover with plastic wrap.  Let rest 20 minutes or so.

Personal Pot PieMeanwhile, mix together chicken, soup, vegetables and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Personal Pot Pie
Fit each roll in muffins tins or cups.  Oops, there are a couple of pieces of cheese in the dough.  Mmmm..mistakes can be tasty!
Personal Pot Pie
Fill each with chicken mixture. Top with cheese.
Personal Pot Pies
  Bake 15 to 20 minutes. 
You can certainly eat these with your hands.  My oldest son kept coming in the kitchen when the timer went off to grab another one and run out of the room.  :) 

Let's have another Rhodes Giveaway, shall we?

Apple Cider Donuts

Amber From dessertnowdinnerlater Wed, Oct 22 2014

Apple Cider Donuts

Hello, hello! It's Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back to share a super easy, and delicious fall treat! This one, is only 3 ingredients, and get's you tangy, sweet, Apple Cider Donuts!

All you need is Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, Apple Cider packets, and oil for frying!

Apple Cider Donuts!

Thaw rolls on a greased baking sheet, covered with lightly greased plastic wrap, until almost double in size. Remove the plastic wrap and poke a hole with your thumb in the middle of one roll and stretch it out, being careful not to deflate the roll completely. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Apple Cider Donuts!

Fill a pot with oil about 1 1/2 to 2 inches high from the bottom. Heat it up until nice and hot, and drop donuts 2 at a time into the oil, turning once, and cooking until golden brown on both sides.

Apple Cider Donuts

Dab donuts on a paper towel to remove extra grease, then quickly coat them with the cider mix in a bowl with a spoon, while still warm.

Apple Cider Donuts

You must eat these within a couple of hours because they don't store well -- the cider mix goes wet after time, so only make what you are ready to eat, but they are so delicious! Tangy, sweet, and soft!

Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

Allison Miller From www.cupcakediariesblog Mon, Oct 20 2014

Pumpkin Spice Donut HolesI love fall and everything about it. Especially the food! And I've got the perfect treat for a crisp fall day. These Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes from Rhodes are perfect with a cup of hot cider and a good book. We made these for a dessert after dinner one night while my twin sister and mom were in town. And to say these donut holes were a hit is an understatement!Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes You can make a whole bunch of donut holes with this recipe. It's so great! Each individual roll or biscuit makes four donut holes. Cut each one into four equal pieces once they have thawed, making sure they are still cold. I used a pizza cutter and it worked perfectly. Pumpkin Spice Donut HolesAfter you've combined the sugars and pumpkin spice in a bowl, press each dough piece into that mixture. Then roll them in a ball.Pumpkin Spice Donut HolesOne thing I love about this recipe is that you don't have to use a huge pot and a ton of oil. All it takes is a small saucepan! Heat cooking oil to medium or medium low heat and fry the dough balls six at a time. It only takes 3 minutes for the rolls and 3 1/2 minutes for the biscuits.Pumpkin Spice Donut HolesRemove donut holes from the oil and coat them with the spiced sugar mixture again. Now I dare you to put them all on a plate and not try to test them as soon as they come out of the pan. I dare you!Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes These are such a yummy treat for fall. They would be perfect to bring to a party or even have around for Thanksgiving! This is a treat we'll be making a lot more, I can guarantee that. Yum!!
