Whole-Wheat Pumpkin Rolls With Honey and Pumpkin Seeds

    Instructions  2 hours, 12 minutes


  • 1

    In large bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in honey until dissolved. Stir in pumpkin and oil. Stir in 4 cups of the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, and salt until dough forms.

  • 2

    Turn dough out onto floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes, adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking. Work in pumpkin seeds. Place dough in lightly oiled bowl. Turn to coat. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.

  • 3

    Line 2 baking sheets with foil. Punch dough down. Form dough into 24 equal-size rolls. Place on prepared baking sheets. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • 4

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Uncover rolls. Bake until puffed and golden and rolls sound hollow when tapped on bottom, about 12 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
