Pumpkin Pecan Braid

"Perfection on a plate"  There is something so great about baking in the Fall.  Look how easy it is to make a Pumpkin Pecan Braid filled with Pumpkin, Nutmeg, Pecans, Cinnamon...

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
