I love finding ways to add a little more fun to everyday things. When I saw these fall themed cinnamon rolls on @forthehome’s Instagram account, I just had to try it!
This is such a simple but fun way to add a little spice (pun intended) to your basic cinnamon rolls.
I started by placing the cinnamon rolls on a cutting board to add the twine to make the pumpkin shape. Cut a piece of string long enough that it can wrap around the the cinnamon roll. I used 4 pieces for each cinnamon roll.
Carefully place the center of the string over the first cinnamon roll, pressing the string down a little to create tension. Repeat this with 3 more strings going across the cinnamon roll in a web pattern. The goal is to create four equal cross sections of the the cinnamon roll. See the photos above or go to my instagram for a video! The string should be snug enough to stay in place, but no tighter than that, as it will tighten as the dough rises when in the oven.
Once the strings are in place, you will flip the cinnamon roll over and tie a double knot in the center with all of the strings. Trim the ends of the string so they aren’t too long.
Place the cinnamon rolls on a glass baking dish and be sure to have them spaced out enough to allow them to expand in the oven and not lose their shape. Follow the directions on the packaging of the cinnamon roll for the temperature of the oven and time to bake.
While the cinnamon rolls are baking, you can make the pumpkin spice icing. I just used a small bowl to put the icing in and then sprinkled Pumpkin Pie Spice seasoning in with the icing and mixed it all together with a spoon.
Once the cinnamon rolls were done baking, I drizzled the icing over the cinnamon rolls and then added a cinnamon stick to the center of each to make the pumpkin stem.
These were super easy to make and they came out so cute and yummy! You can do this with rolls or biscuits as well and they will make such a fun addition to your fall meals.
