Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients (10 pieces)

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 250-300g (8.8-10.6 oz) yellow pumpkin
  • 1 orange, zest
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 50g (1.8 oz) brown sugar
  • 50g (1.8 oz) raisins
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 50g (1.8 oz) walnuts, crushed
  • some butter for the oven pan
Remove the peel, seeds and fiber from the pumpkin and cut into bite-size pieces.
Put in a small saucepan with a little water to cover them. Add the spices, sugar, zest and raisins.
Allow to boil the pumpkin, covered with the lid, over low heat for 20 minutes until soft and comfortable pierced with a fork.
Check and stir occasionally.
When it is ready, drain if water is left. Remove the star anise and cinnamon stick and mash with a fork. Add the cinnamon powder, cornflour and grated walnuts, stir and let the filling aside to cool well.
On top of the workbench spread the pastry and make it leven with a rolling pin.
Spread the filling on the entire surface of the sheet, leaving around the edges ~2cm (0.8 inches) uncovered.
Wrap carefully to form a roll, from the long side, leaving the union down. Cut the cylinder in 10 pieces of 4 cm (1.6 inches).
Arrange the cut pieces in a well-greased pan with the cut side up.
Bake in convection oven at 180°C (356°F, Gas 4.2) for 40 minutes or until the pastry is cooked and golden brown.
Remove the pan from the oven and allow the rolls to cool.


  • 5-6 tbsp orange juice
  • icing sugar
In a small bowl add the orange juice and add, stirring, icing sugar until having a thick glaze, which spread up to cinnamon rolls, after they cooled well.
