Cinnamon rolls are my idea of the perfect breakfast. I don't know how I've been blogging for this long without posting a cinnamon roll recipe, but I'm going to change that today. I absolutely love cinnamon rolls; tender sweet dough swirled with spicy cinnamon and rich brown sugar. Top with a simple powdered sugar glaze, a rich and buttery cream cheese frosting, or even a gooey combination of butter and brown sugar, they are all so good.
This time of year I'm always drawn to pumpkin cinnamon rolls. I love the beautiful golden color that pumpkin gives to the dough, along with lots of moisture to keep the dough tender and not at all dry. Adding some of the spices directly to the dough really amps up the flavor and makes the finished product just that much more delicious. These rolls are simple, tender and delicious, not to mention beautiful. A perfect early winter breakfast for a lazy weekend morning or a wonderful addition to any Christmas brunch spread.
