Thanksgiving Pumpkin Rolls

Happy Thanksgiving to all (a little late).  Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to think about all of the things you have...especially the food.  I love the pie, the potatoes, the homemade dill pickles (yes, that is my favorite food--don't judge), and especially the rolls.  In my family I am usually in charge of rolls because I have a REALLY good recipe for them.  I wanted to make them a little special this year.  Behold...

Little pumpkin rolls.  Aren't they the cutest things you ever saw?!  They were super tasty too.  I learned how to shape the pumpkin rolls on this site.  They had a recipe for rolls that actually have pumpkin in them that I might have to try out next year.  This year I just used my tried-and-true recipe and shaped them into pumpkins.

Here is the recipe for my favorite rolls.  Enjoy!
