Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls + Giveaway

Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls + Giveaway

This giveaway is CLOSED!  Congratulations to Candace on winning!

I’ve never had to want for a meal in my life.  I’ve never been told I couldn’t order something at a restaurant or couldn’t buy something I wanted in the grocery store.  My pantry is stuffed with food.  It’s scary and upsetting to know that many people in this country do not experience the same thing.  In particular one in five children do not know where their next meal will come from.  How is this possible?  No one in the world should be hungry, but here in America it’s rather surprising to me that so many children suffer in this way.

I can’t solve the problem alone, but Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes, and Karo® Syrup have teamed up with bakers like me to try to Bake a Difference.  Those companies are donating $450,000 to No Kid Hungry and are asking all of us to spread the word about the cause. 

Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls

Fleischmann’s® Yeast has been around for more than 140 years and is the yeast I always use when I’m bread baking.  It works really well and makes bread baking so easy!  My pantry is also never without Karo® Corn Syrup.  I always have a couple of bottles of both light and dark syrup.  Homemade marshmallows, caramels, and pecan pie would not be complete without the syrup and my life would not be complete without marshmallows, caramels, and pecan pie!  Karo® Corn Syrup is also the only corn syrup that does not have any high fructose corn syrup in it.  Corn syrup is a naturally derived sweetener just like sugar, and I’ve never understood why it gets a bad rap.  It’s a staple in my kitchen.

I was challenged to take Fleischmann’s® Classic Dinner Roll recipe and put my twist on it, either sweet or savory.  I was so excited to come up with my own creation.  You know I had to go sweet, so I made Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls.  The dough itself is easy to make and I added pumpkin puree to it and then rolled the dough up with a gooey mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, and pecans.  These are super easy to make and would make a great Thanksgiving morning breakfast or an addition to the Thanksgiving table to replace those plain dinner rolls.  I’m not always a dinner roll kind of girl, but I couldn’t get enough of these with their part cinnamon roll, part dinner roll taste.

Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls

In keeping with the spirit of the mission, I shared my rolls with my parents, because I share all of my creations with them, and my grateful neighbors.  I wish I could’ve shared with even more people.  You can Bake a Difference too by whipping up these rolls or another treat of your choice and share it with your friends, family, or even better, those in need.

You can also share images of classic Fleischmann’s® Yeast and Karo® Syrup recipes that you have made with your own spin using the #BakingADifference hashtag on all Fleischmann’s® Yeast and Karo® Syrup Facebook channels for a chance to be included in the Baking A Difference e-cookbook at Facebook.com/FleischmannsYeast and Facebook.com/KaroSyrup.  How cool would it be to have your recipe in a cookbook?!?

To make it even better, and kick off the holiday season, Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes, and Karo® Syrup were also kind enough to give me two gift packs, one for me and one to give away to all of you!  This gift pack is sure to get you all set for holiday baking.  Valued at over $75, it includes, Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes, and Karo® Syrup, along with apple butter, a bread basket with a warming stone, oven mitts, and holiday spreading utensils.  Baking will be a breeze this holiday season!

Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls

Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls + Giveaway
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
 
Ingredients
Rolls
  • 2 – 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup milk (I used almond, but any will work)
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Filling
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, stir together ¾ cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, and salt. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine milk, pumpkin, and butter. Microwave on high in 30 second increments until very warm (120-130 degrees F). Pour heated pumpkin mixture into flour mixture and beat with a hand mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add an additional ¼ cup of flour and beat with the mixer on high for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add an additional 1 cup of flour and stir until a soft dough is formed. If the dough seems too sticky, add the final ¼ cup of flour. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface 8-10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Cover with a piece of parchment or a tea towel and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. While the dough is resting, make the filling. In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, butter, pecans, and cinnamon until fully combined.
  4. Using hands, press the dough into about a 10-inch circle. Cut the dough into 10 roughly equal sized triangles (it doesn’t have to be perfect). Take one triangle of dough at a time and place about 1 tablespoon of filling all over the surface of the triangle. Roll the triangle up tightly. It is okay if some of the filling falls out. Place with the point down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat until all of the rolls are formed.
  5. Cover the baking sheet with parchment paper or a tea towel and place in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, 30-45 minutes.
  6. While the rolls are rising, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Some of the filling may have oozed out – that is okay. Serve warm or cool completely on pan. Rolls may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat in a 350 degree F oven for 5-10 minutes. Rolls may also be frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in a 350 degree F oven for about 20 minutes.
