They really are ridiculously cute.

Do you know what you’re looking at? Only the cutest thing you’ll see on a Thanksgiving table this year. They’re pumpkin rolls that¬†look like pumpkins, and are actually¬†made with pumpkin. For¬†stems I used¬†broken pretzel pieces, to keep them nut-free.

Yes. That’s right.

I can take no credit for these, not the recipe¬†nor the shape. All I can do is pat myself on the back for baking them¬†three years in a row, and tell you that since I pulled this year’s double-batch out of the oven, Harry’s eaten two and begged to eat at least three more. Something about the adorable shape, the orange-yellow color, and the lightly sweet, super-tender dough makes them irresistible, even to picky eaters. It I don’t throw them into the freezer pretty soon, there may not be any left for the actual holiday.

Bake a batch. You won’t be sorry.
