Yield: 15 rolls
- 2 Tbsp water
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup pumpkin, canned, mashed

- 4 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1 Tbsp (1⅓ package) RED STAR Active Dry Yeast
- ¼ cup butter, melted
BREAD MACHINE METHOD
- Place room temperature ingredients in pan in order listed. Select DOUGH setting. When cycle is complete, remove dough. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, ½ to 1 TBSP at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 TBSP of flour at a time. See our Bread Machine section for more helpful tips and information. Continue with Shaping, Rising and Baking.
- Combine yeast, 2 cups bread flour, and other dry ingredients. Combine water, oil and pumpkin; heat to 120° to 130° F. Add to flour mixture; beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Add eggs; beat 3 minutes. By hand, stir in enough remaining bread flour to make a soft dough. Knead on floured surface 5 to 7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in lightly greased bowl; turn to grease top. Cover; let rise until dough tests ripe.
SHAPING, RISING AND BAKING
- Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Divide dough into 3 parts; divide each third into 5 pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Dip tops in melted butter. Place in greased 13 x 9- inch pan. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after lightly touching side of a roll. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Remove rolls from pan. For soft sided rolls do not break apart. Cool on rack.
- You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) yeast for Active Dry Yeast. Traditional methods- replace 1:1. Expect your dough to rise faster; always let your dough rise until ‘ripe’. Bread Machines- use ½ tsp Instant yeast (or ¾ tsp Active Dry yeast) per cup of flour in your recipe. Visit our Lessons in Yeast & Baking for more information.
