How to make it

  • In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Heat water, pumpkin, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  • Reserve a plum-size piece of dough. Divide remaining dough into 4 equal pieces; roll each piece to 7-inch rope. Place side-by-side on greased baking sheet. Pinch ends together to shape into pumpkin. Shape reserved dough into stem. Place over top of pumpkin; pinch to seal. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 375oF for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack. Decorate with colored Powdered Sugar Glaze, raisins and apple pieces to resemble a face, if desired.
  • Powdered Sugar Glaze
  • In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk. Stir until smooth.
  • To color glaze:
  • Green: Add 1 to 2 drops green food color to 2 tablespoons Powdered Sugar Glaze.
  • Orange: Add 2 to 3 drops each of red and yellow food color to remaining Powdered Sugar Glaze.
