SERVING: Makes 16 Rolls


  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup canned 100% pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine the pumpkin, oil, and brown sugar.
  3. Add pumpkin mixture to dry mixture, stirring with a fork until combined. Form into a ball.
  4. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes.
  6. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to a 10-inch circle.
  7. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. To shape, begin at the wide end of each wedge and loosely roll toward the point.
  8. Place point sides down, about 2 inches apart, on the prepared baking sheet. Curve ends of rolls slightly.
  9. Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over crescents. Bake in a 400 degree F (200 C) oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.


Make-Ahead Tip:
Prepare, bake, and cool rolls. Freeze in a freezer container or bag up to 1 month. Wrap frozen rolls in foil and thaw at room temperature for 2 hours; reheat in a 375 degree F (190 C) oven for 3 to 5 minutes.
