24 Rolls

1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup flour

1 cup cold water
1/2 cup powdered milk, or 1 1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup softened butter
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin, (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
4 1/2 – 5 cups flour
1 tablespoon dry yeast

  1. Make the tangzhong: measure the milk into a small blender or magicBullet; add the 1/3 cup flour and blend until there are no lumps.
  2. Place the mixture in a small skillet and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens.
  3. Remove from the heat and dump it into the pan of the bread machine.
  4. DoughPlace the cold water and powdered milk in the pan over the tangzhong to cool it and add the eggs, salt, pumpkin, butter, 4 1/2 cups flour and yeast.
  5. Turn the machine to the dough setting and let run for 5-10 minutes. You may need to scrape the sides down a bit because this is a lot of dough.
  6. Check to make sure the ingredients have formed a very soft dough. If the dough is stiff, add a bit of milk; if it is too soft, add flour. Let the machine run.
  7. When the machine has finished, transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. The dough is now ready to shape, rise, and bake.
