Pumpkin Buns


Combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, and salt in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; cook until the brown sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Stir the flour into the cooled pumpkin mixture to form a dough. Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to the dough; allow to rest 5 minutes. Roll the dough into 12 even-sized balls and flatten to about 2-inches in diameter.

Heat the remaining vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-hot heat. Fry the dough in the hot oil until lightly brown on each side. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

Servings: 12 buns

I haven't made these yet, but they look fantastic and I *will* be making them soon.

One reviewer's note that looked helpful: I used fresh pumpkin which I had pureed, and left everything else the same. These were delicious! They turned out warm and chewy, with an almost caramel taste to them. Absolutely perfect with hot tea or coffee on a wintry afternoon. I will be making these again.
