I love cinnamon rolls, and thought it would be fun to add pumpkin and eggnog to a cinnamon roll recipe I already had for the fall season.
Warm 1/2 cup eggnog in a small saucepan over low heat until it bubbles, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in 1/8 cup butter and 1/8 cup pumpkin; stir until melted. Add water and let mixture cool until lukewarm, about 5 minutes.
Combine cooled eggnog mixture, 1 cup flour, white sugar, egg, yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Stir well to combine. Stir in remaining flour 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition with an electric mixer until dough has pulled together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
Roll dough into a 12x9-inch rectangle.
Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice together in a bowl. Spread melted butter on top of dough and top with brown sugar mixture. Roll dough into a log, using a little water to seal the seam.
Cut roll into 12 slices using a very sharp knife or a piece of unflavored dental floss. Place rolls into a 9x13-inch greased baking pan. Cover and let rise until almost doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, 1/4 cup pumpkin, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Add eggnog gradually until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. Spread frosting over warm cinnamon rolls.

Eating healthy breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full longer, and not want likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before break .
Making fruit a morning habit is easy . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the table next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
