delicate dough with a sweet pumpkin spice filling and a gooey caramel topping



For the dough

  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 TBS unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup powdered milk
  • 4 to 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • melted butter for brushing
  • pumpkin spice for sprinkling
  • brown sugar for sprinkling

For the topping

  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 TBS melted unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup KARO light syrup


Make the dough:

  • In a large bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water. Let it sit until the yeast gets foamy.
  • Add the sugar, eggs, butter, milk powder, 4 cups of flour and the salt.
  • Mix with the paddle until the dough comes away from the bowl. Add the remaining flour if needed but this is a soft, somewhat sticky dough.
  • Either turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or knead for 10 minutes on speed 1 of your mixer.
  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl, turn and let rise until doubled in size about 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Punch down and shape into a rectangle. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Roll out to about 24″ x 15″
  • Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with pumpkin spice – how much is up to you. Just remember that cloves and ginger provide heat. Then sprinkle with brown sugar. Again how much is up to you.
  • Carefully roll up from the long end. Trim and cut into 24, one inch pieces.
  • In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar, 2 TBS of melted butter, salt and KARO. Pour into a 13 x 9″ pan and spread evenly.
  • Carefully place the pieces of dough on top on the caramel topping. Cover and let rise until doubled in size about 40 minutes.
  • While the dough is rising preheat oven to 375
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 – 30 minutes until nicely browned and evenly cooked. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes then carefully flip. The topping will be hot. Place a piece of wax paper or foil underneath the rack to catch any runoff.
