I’m baaaaaack! I’ve been gone for a few weeks (did you miss me?), putting the finishing touches to a special project that has taken me about 2 years to finish up. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to share it with you all very soon. I can’t just yet though, but when the time comes, it’ll be amazing. You’ll cry, and then I’ll cry, and then we’ll all cry together some more. It’ll be magical. Everything I’ve ever dreamed of. I have been so busy focusing on this project, that I haven’t had much time for updating the site. I’m sorry about that. It’s been a long and painful 2 weeks without a new full recipe, and without creating a weekly distraction for you, believe me it pained me. I’ve missed it so much. Last week I did share a Croissant, Ham and Cheese Stuffing, just in case you didn’t catch it, but that was a shortened post so it doesn’t really count. It’s a great Thanksgiving stuffing if you’re in the market for one. Anyhow, now I’m back and I’m bringing you this irresistible dessert and/or breakfast that is perfect for the season. Did I mention how excited I am to be back?
I’m always so busy running around the days leading up to Thanksgiving, and especially super busy on the actual day, that I most often than not forget about making breakfast. Does that happen to you, or is it just me? It’s funny because I plan everything out for the big meal and I have it all mapped out meticulously, but for some reason year after year, I forget about making something for breakfast. By the time I remember, I’m knee deep in holiday cooking and my family is coming in and out of the kitchen asking if they can try something, anything. This year, however, I didn’t want to be unprepared. This year I waned to make sure to have something delicious and homemade ready to go for breakfast.
These Pumpkin Sugar Buns are everything a sugar bun should be; soft, flavorful and easy to whip up. If you can make and bake cinnamon rolls, you can definitely make these sugar buns with your eyes closed. The best part is that you can bake them the night before and then finish assembling them in the morning, right before you start cooking that turkey and making those sides. I like these sugar buns because they’re a bit more flavorful than regular sugar buns, thanks to the pumpkin and cinnamon. I’m all about cinnamon rolls with lots of cream cheese frosting, but sometimes we all just need a roll covered in cinnamon sugar, especially during the holidays. P.S. They’re not just for breakfast! They happen to make a great dessert as well. Bring them to your Friendsgiving party instead of pumpkin pie. Trust me, everyone will thank you for it.
