Spiced Pumpkin Rolls

Spiced Pumpkin bread rolls came out extremely soft with mild sweet and pretty cute. You can serve these cuties very well with your usual spread for snacks or else as a side with your bowl of soup. They are not only shaped as pumpkin they are also made with homemade,preservative free, freshly made pumpkin puree, this makes this bread rolls more interesting and healthy. If you dont have enough time or dunno how to make pumpkin puree just go with canned pumpkin puree easily available in markets. Also this rolls goes for couple of spice powder like cinnamon, ginger powder and all spice powder which makes this cute rolls more flavourful.
