For the Filling



  • In a stand mixer bowl,  with a paddle attachment, (or a large bowl) add the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Mix together. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add in pumpkin butter and vanilla. Combine again.
  • Turn stand mixer to low and add 2 cups of flour, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. When almost all combined add 1 more cup of flour and combine again.
  • Switch to a dough hook and add 1 more cup of flour and mix just until combined. Add in butter 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing completely after each.
  • Let knead for 8-10 minutes on medium speed or until it doesn't stick to the bowl. It will pull away from the bowl. Still slightly sticky but not sticking to your hands.
  • Spray bowl, form into a ball and place ball inside. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60 minutes in a warm, draft free place, or until doubled.
  • Once doubled in size, pull out the dough and lay it out on a lightly floured surface.  Using a rolling pin, roll dough into an approximately 17×25″ rectangle that is 1/4″ thick. 
  • In a bowl, whisk together the filling ingredients. Spread the mixture evenly across dough.
  • Carefully cut vertically 12 pieces (about 2 inches each). Roll tightly each piece and then place then in a greased muffin tin. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 30-40 minutes in a warm, draft free place.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F while waiting to rise, then place inside oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool. In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar for the coating.
  • Once cooled, brush the tops with melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Serve warm.
