We were blessed with a bountiful harvest of pumpkins this year and I am cooking them off a few at a time. I use some and freeze some for later use in pumpkin pies and other desserts.

Here are some of the recipes that I have made so far.

This Pumpkin Dinner Roll recipe is from Gina at Home Joys and it is delicious. They are so soft and light. I think they would also make great cinnamon rolls also. I’ll probably try that one of these days.
