Mini Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

One of my favorite reasons for hosting a playgroup every week is that I have an excuse to bake and try out new recipes.This week I really wanted to make these mini cinnamon rolls I’ve had pinned forever, but because it’s fall I also really wanted to do something with the cans of pumpkin that have been sitting in my pantry forever. So I decided to try and combine the mini cinnamon rolls with this great Picky-Palate pumpkin breakfast roll recipe. Not only were they quick, they were delicious as well. And because I made mini versions, I felt like I could eat three twelve rather than just one.
