This week’s Mini Chef Monday posts features these delicious Semi-Homemade Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls.
You know I like to keep things real here. I love cooking and pride myself on making as much as possible homemade but sometimes we like to take shortcuts. Truth be told, I’m not the best baker so if I am taking a shortcut it is most likely when baking. The boys absolutely love cinnamon rolls so in the spirit of “pumpkin everything” we made Semi-Homemade Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls for this week’s Mini Chef Mondays.
This recipe is pretty fool proof and requires just a few ingredients: ready-to-bake tube of cinnamon rolls (icing included), pumpkin puree, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. To begin, I had my little guy combine the pumpkin puree, sugar and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl and mix to incorporate. I then had my oldest son lay the cinnamon rolls out flat and then spread the pumpkin puree mixture onto the cinnamon rolls.
We then re-rolled the cinnamon rolls, filling each spiral with tons of pumpkin flavor.
We tightly nestled the semi-homemade pumpkin cinnamon rolls in a pan and baked in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Within minutes the house smelled like fresh-baked pumpkin pie and we had ooey-gooey semi-homemade pumpkin cinnamon rolls to enjoy. To finish, we topped the cinnamon rolls with the icing that was included in the cinnamon rolls package. That’s it! It’s just that simple.
- 1 tube of store bought cinnamon rolls
- 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Preheat oven to 350 degree. Combine pumpkin puree, sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Unroll the tube of store bought cinnamon rolls until flat. Spread a layer (not too thick but not too thin) of the pumpkin filling onto the cinnamon rolls. Re-roll the cinnamon roll into a spiral and nestle tightly into a pan. Bake in an oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before topping with icing packet from the tube. Serve warm.
These Semi-Homemade Cinnamon Rolls are a super easy recipe to make with the kids and are perfect for an emerging mini chef or when you are short on time.
