If cinnamon rolls and brioche got together in a bakery and had a hypothetical baby in the fall it would be this Pumpkin Spice Brioche with Maple Glaze. I’m absolutely smitten with this recipe. You get all the pumpkin flavor by using pumpkin pie spice without having to use pumpkin puree.

Then the dough needs to sit a spell so the yeast can work it’s magic. Once the dough is perfectly plumped it’s time to rock and roll. Well roll, cut and twist. But we’ll walk you through it.

Don’t believe me, pop over to PINTEREST and take a peek. I’m betting you may just have a can or two of pumkin puree in your pantry.

If you do and you’re not ready to make COOKIES just get, might I suggest making this chili. It’s made using ground turkey so it’s on the leaner side. It’s beefed up with black beans and a slew of spices, because spice is oh so nice, and the star, pumpkin.
