These rolls are cut into quarters and baked in a muffin tin giving them a fun easy pull apart feel like monkey bread.  Kids just love ’em!

How to Make Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Muffins:

  • Grab a package of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and cut them into quarters.
  • Whisk the pumpkin, brown sugar, butter, and pumpkin pie spice together.
  • Add the cinnamon rolls to the bowl and fold them to coat.
  • Add 4 pieces of cinnamon roll to each muffin cup and bake.
  • Allow to cool and drizzle with the glaze that comes with the cinnamon rolls.

These pumpkin cinnamon rolls cannot be easier to make.  They require very few ingredients and are perfect for a buffet style Sunday breakfast alongside this Apple Cinnamon Baked French Toast. 

There is almost no work involved and your family and/or guests will love the twist on the plain old cinnamon roll.
