Gingerbread Rolls with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting


This recipe is the perfect way to welcome the chilly weather.  It's a lightly sweetened gingerbread dough that I filled with pumpkin, brown sugar and butter.  Then to top it off I made a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting!  It makes your house smell amazing and the best part about this recipe is that it starts with a mix!  I recently had the opportunity to try King Arthur's Gingerbread Cookie & Cake Mix and I'm so happy that I did.  Once I received the mix, I knew I didn't want to make cookies or cake, but something different.  After many days of contemplating I finally came up with this delicious recipe and I'm very pleased with the results.  The wonderful folks at King Arthur Flour are graciously offering one of you a mix as well!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you're going to make.

Ingredients are as follows:

2 (.25 ounce) packages of instant yeast
2 1/4 C warm water (around 110 degrees)
1 Tbsp sugar

1 King Arthur Gingerbread Cookie & Cake Mix
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
4 1/2 C flour 

1 1/4 C canned pumpkin
1 C butter, softened
1 C brown sugar
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 C butter, softened
1 3/4 C powdered sugar
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice


In a bowl mix the yeast, warm water and sugar.  Give a little stir and let it sit for about ten minutes.

Pour the proofed yeast into a bigger bowl then add the Gingerbread Cookie & Cake Mix, vanilla, salt and flour.

Mix until incorporated and a dough forms; knead an additional five minutes (The dough may be a little sticky, however do not add additional flour now).

Place in a well greased bowl, cover with a towel and set in a warm place so the dough can rise.

Allow dough to rise until doubled in size.

Roll out dough onto a well floured surface  (this is where any additional flour can be added if it's too sticky to work with; I added about half a cup).


I rolled my dough out to about 18 x 20 inches

Cream together the pumpkin, butter, brown sugar & pumpkin pie spice.

Evenly spread this mixture over the dough.

Roll the dough up; slice into 12 pieces.  Place into a greased 9 x 13" pan. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cover the rolls with a towel, place in a warm area and allow to rise again (about half an hour)

Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

While the rolls are cooling, cream together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice.

Frost the rolls.

Take a bite and enjoy!
