Servings 12 rolls20


  • 1 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup room temperature water
  • teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • cups cups bread flour, plus more as needed
  • ¼ cup nonfat dry milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Day one: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a stand mixer and knead with the dough hook until smooth. You can also mix the ingredients in a large bowl, using a hand-held electric mixer, then knead by hand.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside to rise until the dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Flour your work surface and turn out the dough. Divide it into 12 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Arrange the balls on the prepared baking pan and cover the pan with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
  • Day 2 (baking day): Take the pan out of the refrigerator and heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Remove the plastic and bake the rolls until nicely browned and the internal temperature is 205 degrees F. on an instant-read thermometer, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
