You can use any milk you prefer.
You can use regular white sugar.
You can use any oil you prefer.
Dried active yeast
Pumpkin pie spice
Fresh rosemary, chopped
You can use dried rosemary too.
Olive oil, for brushing on top
You can use melted butter, cream, or milk.
Heat milk, oil, and sugar in a small saucepan. Don't let it come to a boil. Take off the heat and cool. Stir in the pumpkin puree. The mixture should be lukewarm.
Sprinkle over the yeast. Set aside for 5-10 minutes until the mixture is bubbly.
Whisk in the 2.5 cups of flour, pumpkin pie spice, dried thyme, and chopped rosemary. Cover and place in a draft-free place for 1 hour or until the dough is doubled in size.
Now add in the extra 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. If the dough seems too sticky, add more flour and give a quick knead for 1-2 minutes.
The dough is now ready for use immediately. You can refrigerate it for at least an hour or up to 2 days.
I would recommend refrigerating for at least an hour as it firms up the dough, making it easier to work with.
When you're ready to bake, line your baking tray with Silpat or parchment paper.
Flour your work surface and knead the dough for 1-2 minutes.
Divide the dough into equal-sized 15 pieces, about 45-50gms each.
Shape the dough pieces into balls.
Working with one dough piece at a time, place each ball seam side up and tie a cooking/ kitchen twine around it in a way that the ball is divided into 8 parts.
Make sure not to tighten the twine too much as the dough ball will puff up more during the 2nd rise and in the oven.
Place all the shaped pumpkin balls on the prepared tray and cover with a kitchen towel. Place the tray in a draft-free area for 15-20 minutes until the pumpkin balls get a bit puffy.
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200C.
When the pumpkin rolls are puffed up, brush with olive oil and bake at 200 C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown
Brush the rolls with more olive oil as soon as you take them out of the oven.
Cool completely before untying the twine. Insert a walnut half in the center to make it look like a stem,
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
