Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Pecans or Maple Cream Cheese Icing

Recipe from Inspired by Charm

Here's what you need:

1/4oz package yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup scaled milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter (melted)
1 tsp salt
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground clove
1 egg (room temperature)
4-5 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup softened butter (plus more for pan)
3/4 cup sugar (plus more for pan)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

4 oz of cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar (sifted)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp real maple syrup
1/4 tsp salt

How to make them:

In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water and set aside.
In a stand mixer bowl, combine mik, sugar, melted butter, pumpkin puree, spices, salt, and egg with a spoon.
Attach the bowl to the mixer with the dough hook attached.
Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth.
Add yeast mixture.
Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle.
Knead with dough hook for about 5 minutes (if not using a stand mixer, knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes)
Place in well greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
When doubled in size, punch down dough.
Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 x 9 inch rectangle.
Spread softened butter all over dough.
In a small bowl, mix together sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
Then sprinkle over buttered dough.
Beginning at the 15 inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal.
Cut into 12 to 15 slices.
Coat the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar.
* Optional: Sprinkle some toasted pecans on the sugar.
Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350˚F.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, butter, confectioner's sugar, salt, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth.
Spread over slightly cooled rolls and ENJOY!
