Pumpkin Season

Waking up to the golden sun, dew drops on the grass and cool crisp air just pulls my soul closer to the pumpkin patch.  As I walked onto my front porch this morning reminded me of everything I love about the fall season.  Dew laden spider webs that look crystallized in the early morning sun and the rich colors of the mums as they begin to bloom.  To me this is the start of pulling out all the recipes that contain pumpkin and acorn squash sprinkled with toasted walnuts and pecans.  So I decided that today I would post a Recipe of the Day to get everyone started on the yummy pumpkin patch path!

Caramel and Pumpkin Pull Aparts

1pkg frozen white dinner rolls
2 pkgs instant pumpkin spice pudding
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 small jar of caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped and toasted pecans or walnuts

This is an overnight recipe.

Prepare a Bundt pan with baking spray or Crisco, sprinkle bottom with toasted nuts then layer frozen rolls on top.  Take care to not to overfill the pan with rolls.  Mix sugar and pudding together and sprinkle over the rolls.  Dot with butter tabs then cover with a towel or plastic wrap, place in your overnight.  In the morning remove the pan, uncover,  preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Pour caramel topping over rolls just prior to placing in the oven.  Bake 30-45mins.  Let cool for 5-10mins and flip pan onto a large serving plate and serve.  All that yummy goodness will drizzle down the rolls!  Depending on size of rolls will make a dozen to a dozen and a half of breakfast rolls.
