Homemade cinnamon rolls are just special. There is something about homemade rolls, filling the house with their heavenly smell, that cannot be beat. Every holiday I make a version of my Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls. These Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Glaze are perfect for Thanksgiving! And since fall is my favorite season, I make these as often as I can to enjoy this time of year.
Homemade cinnamon rolls do take some time to make, but they are completely worth it. The trick with these is making them the day or night before. This way, you do not have to wake up in the middle of the night to get these going. Just prep them in advance, throw them in the oven, and your house will smell like heaven in no time!
Pumpkin spice is put in both the dough and filling here so that everything tastes like fall! You can make your own pumpkin spice easily, learn how to make it here! The maple cream cheese glaze is a perfect compliment to the rolls, but feel free to leave the maple syrup out if you wish. The glaze is my favorite part of a cinnamon roll, so this batch makes a LOT! I also love to add some chopped pecans or walnuts.
I typically have to double the recipe because people are known to eat three or four per person in our house. They are just too irresistible! Plus, you will want leftovers. And if you fight over the inside pieces like we do, you will want extra “center” rolls. 🙂 These Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Glaze are sure to be a hit in your house!
