Merryn says "As I said in a post about the cookies I am NOT a baker but I have to say these cinnamon rolls ARE AMAZING so much nicer to me than regular cinnamon rolls ..the pumpkin gives them a depth of flavor, it is just “oh thats nice” moment when you bite into them so when they had cooled and I removed them from the pan, i reheated the skillet and put some butter and quickly deglazed what had stuck to the pan and poured it over the rolls...it gave them an additional topping depth....these truly were lovely..really really good."
