Pumpkin Spiced Dinner Rolls - Savory Simple

Pumpkin spiced dinner rolls are perfect as a side for your Thanksgiving dinner. Imagine dipping them into turkey gravy or scooping them into homemade stuffing. Want something more immediate? Enjoy them as Jeff and I did, sliced in half and used as buns for slow cooker pulled pork (which we served with a side of coleslaw). Or how about serving them with some homemade chili?

These rolls are perfect for any time of year if you love pumpkin as much as I do. I hope you enjoy them!

Pumpkin Spiced Dinner Rolls
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 10 large rolls
  • ⅓ cup lukewarm water
  • ½ ounce active dry yeast
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 17 ounces (4 cups) all purpose flour (plus more as needed)
  • ½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the water and yeast together until bubbly and then allow it to sit for 1 minute. Add the butter, sugar, pumpkin puree and eggs and whisk until just combined.
  2. Attach the dough hook to the mixer. Stir the salt into the flour and then add them to the mixer on low speed.
  3. Allow the dough to mix for approximately 5 minutes on low speed. It will be sticky. If it's not coming together, add up to 4 more tablespoons of flour, adding 1-2 tablespoons at a time. You can also put a small amount of vegetable oil on your hands to keep the dough from sticking to them.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly greased large bowl and cover. Allow to double in size, approximately 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degreesF and lightly grease 2 8-inch cake pans. Divide the dough into 10 equal sized balls and place 5 in each cake pan. Allow the dough to rise for another 25-30 minutes.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until fully cooked through. Serve warm.
