Pumpkin Bread Rolls Made with Pumpkin Puree

pumpkin bread rolls

Pumpkin Bread Rolls are soft, delicious, and easy to make for Halloween. We eat them with either ham and cheese, smoked salmon, or just plain butter but there are endless options.

Before making this recipe make sure to have pumpkin puree available or make it yourself using this recipe: Pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice syrup. The pumpkin puree can be used for many other autumn dishes, try for example to make a pumpkin spice latte with pumpkin spice syrup or make pumpkin crepes served with toasted hazelnuts and pumpkin spice syrup on top.
