Directions HIDE IMAGES
STEP 1
Heat Milk (3/4 cup) to scalding hot, add Butter (6 tablespoon) to melt and Canned Pumpkin Purée (1 cup) to mix in. Add the Salt (1 teaspoon) and stir everything well.
STEP 2
Combine active Active Dry Yeast (2 package), Brown Sugar (1/3 cup), Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) and Water (1/4 cup) and let them bubble up. Add to the pumpkin mixture. Add an Egg (1) and mix well.
STEP 3
Add the All-Purpose Flour (5 cup) and stir with a wooden spoon.
STEP 4
Time to knead! I used my mixer to do the job. Knead until the dough pull itself from the side of the bowl, about 5 minutes.
STEP 5
Dump the dough on the lightly floured surface and knead with your hand for 1 minute.
STEP 6
Form the dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover and let it rise in a warm place until they get double in volume.
STEP 7
Here is the beautifully risen dough. Love the deep yellow color!
STEP 8
Give it a punch to deflate. The moment I've been waiting for...
STEP 9
Divide the dough in half. Roll each half to make a log and cut each log in 15 pieces or more if you prefer smaller rolls.
STEP 10
Form each piece into a ball by pulling it together...
STEP 11
Press down a little with your hand.
STEP 12
Using a knife, give 8 segments of cut on the edge but leave the center uncut. It'll look like a flower!
STEP 13
Poke deeply into the center of pedal with your pinkie.
STEP 14
Let them rise again. The center indentation somehow disappeared but you can always poke them again. You gotta love poking!
STEP 15
Brush with egg wash to give the golden look..
STEP 16
Bake them in the 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 9-12 minutes. Don't over bake.
STEP 17
Brush with melted Butter (4 tablespoon) to give them a little shine. Slice the Pecan Halves (20) to use as stems! Cute...aren't they? Finish and serve.
