Today’s post is a little bit of a cheat, but we will be on the road for a while with a packed day so no cooking on my agenda!
Pumpkin Cinnamon rolls are what inspired the 31 days of pumpkin. Our little guy had a different brand of rolls that were loaded with sugar and cost a college tuition payment. All he talked about for two weeks was having pumpkin rolls! Then he started asking for ANYTHING with pumpkin in it. He’s four, so if he wanted to have pumpkin, who was I to deny him?
I was walking through my favorite grocery store, Trader Joe’s, and saw their Pumpkin Rolls. I quickly grabbed a few cans for him to try and he hasn’t looked back since!
Don’t get me wrong, these pumpkin rolls have sugar, but they don’t taste like a mouthful of sugar. There’s pumpkin in the rolls and they are topped with a pumpkin pie spiced icing. Surprisingly, the taste is very subtle and totally delicious.
Don’t worry, there is a homemade pumpkin roll recipe in the works for the 31 Days of Pumpkin! Stay tuned to find out when!
