Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

I had wanted to make cinnamon rolls for awhile but was intimidated because they seemed complicated and easy to mess up, but I decided to send it for Thanksgiving and make them with a twist. I didn't realize how much waiting around there was when making cinnamon rolls, but apparently patience is a virtue and these were worth it. I followed direction I found on Minimalist Baker and then created my own recipe to make these pumpkin peanut butter cinnamon filled cinnamon rolls. If you're not into the peanut butter life, then I'm sure it'll still work if you sub it but no promises they'll be as good.These were actually not as scary to make and I think they turned out pretty damn great, so let's face our fears together and go give these a try.
