Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dough ingredients until everything is well combined. The mixture will become a bit sticky – that's perfectly fine! Now, knead the dough for about 5 minutes or until it turns soft and smooth.
  2. Place the dough in a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Let it rest for approximately 2 hours or until it doubles in size. This step is essential for the dough to rise properly and develop that lovely texture.
  3. Once the dough has doubled, transfer it to a floured surface and roll it out into a rectangle.
  4. For the filling, mix melted butter, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Then, spread this delicious mixture evenly over the dough rectangle.
  5. Now comes the fun part – roll up the dough tightly into a log.
  6. Cut the log into 9 equal-sized rolls and place them in a lightly greased baking pan.
  7. Cover the pan and allow the rolls to rise for an additional hour. This extra rise time helps ensure they turn out light and fluffy.
  8. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and then bake time the rolls for around 25 minutes or until they are lightly browned.

Step-by-Step Guide to Mastering the Libbys Pumpkin Roll Recipe

Now, let's dive into the heart of this recipe, but before we proceed, here's a little secret: using a large mixer bowl makes combining the wet and dry ingredients a breeze. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to it!

  1. Preparing the Dough
    • Start by combining the pumpkin puree and other wet ingredients in a large bowl, stirring until you achieve a smooth consistency.
    • In a separate bowl, carefully combine flour and other dry ingredients to create the perfect flour mixture.
    • Marrying the wet and dry ingredients, blend them well until a soft, smooth dough is formed. A hand mixer can come in handy here!
  2. The Rising Act
    • Place the dough in a bowl and lovingly cover it with plastic wrap, letting it take a peaceful nap for about 2 hours until it doubles in size.
  3. Rolling and Filling
    • Lightly flour your surface, ready to welcome the dough for rolling.
    • Once rolled, lavish it with a heavenly cream cheese mixture for that perfect amount of sweetness.
  4. Baking to Perfection
    • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking pan adequately to ensure an easy release.
    • After the rolls have had their second rise, it's time to welcome them into the warm embrace of the oven. Bake until the top of the cake springs back upon a gentle touch.

Tips for Achieving the Perfect Roll

  • Utilize parchment paper to prevent the dough from sticking to the surface, ensuring a smooth rolling process.
  • Make use of a cotton kitchen towel to cover the dough during its resting period, maintaining an optimum environment for rising.
  • When it’s bake time, consider using a dark-colored pan for an even bake, yielding a tender pumpkin cake that’s just the right amount of crispy at the edges.
  • A wire rack is your friend when it comes to cooling these beauties to achieve the perfect texture before devouring them.
