How to Make Pumpkin Dinner Rolls


  1. In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, water, milk, butter, pumpkin, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add wheat germ, 7-8 cups of the flour, and yeast. Mix, and then continue adding flour and kneading until dough is elastic and not sticky.
  3. Place dough in greased bowl; grease top of dough, cover with a towel, and set in a warm place until doubled (about 60-90 minutes).
  4. Punch dough down and divide into thirds. Divide each third into 16 pieces and shape into balls.
  5. Place on greased baking sheets, and grease tops. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until tops are golden. Remove to wire racks and cover with a towel. Brush tops with butter if desired, as soon as rolls are removed to the wire racks. Serve warm with butter.
