These pumpkin shaped rolls are the perfect addition to any Holiday meal.


12 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls or 12 Rhodes Texas Rolls, thawed but still cold
2 tablespoons butter, melted
12 pecan pieces, for stems


Shape each dinner or Texas roll into a slightly flat ball.

Using scissors, make 6 to 8 cuts, equally spaced, around the outside of each ball about 1/2- inch deep.

Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke a deep hole into the top of each pumpkin shaped roll.

Place on a sprayed baking sheet and cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Allow to rise until almost double.

Remove wrap and re-poke stem hole.

Bake at 350 degrees F 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with butter. Insert pecan pieces into pumpkin rolls for stems.

      Thanks for your question! It’s difficult to give you an exact time. It depends on the warmth of your kitchen and how fresh the yeast is. So it’s more by their appearance. Let them double in size and then bake. Should be about an hour or so. Hope this helps you!
