How to make it
Thaw frozen bread dough or prepare hot roll mix according to package directions.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray petite pumpkin pan with vegetable cooking spray.
Roll dough with floured hands into 3/4 inch diameter balls.
Press balls firmly into pan cavities and into face indentations in each cavity; let rise following package directions. (Place remaining dough in the refrigerator until ready to bake.)
Bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are browned. Cool; remove breads from pan.
