Pumpkin Dinner Rolls

Delicious Pumpkin Dinner Rolls. I love these!

These light rolls have a beautiful color to them. They taste fabulous anytime but are especially perfect in the fall. We first found this recipe when I was growing up in a Taste of Home magazine. I hadn’t made them for years, but recently dug out the recipe. Yum. So I made them again the next time we had company. Not only are they tasty they also become a topic of conversation because of the rich color.

This recipes makes 24-30 rolls and can easily be cut in half.

    I love hot roll and love pumpkin bread so this sounds just wonderful. I think this would be great for a potluck. Hope I can do this for the next one I go to.
