Fall Baking Day

We've been having some cold, frosty days here. So why not do some baking. Usually we bake on mondays.

This week before starting the baking I washed a few pumpkins, stabbed them and placed them on a baking pan. Baked at 350' for 3 hours while we were doing school work. We homeschool.
Above is the cooled pumpkin and our regular Whole Wheat Bread rising.
***See previous blog entry for bread recipe.
Then I made another batch of the same breadrecipe, using the pumpkin liquid for most of the water and adding;
2 cups pumpkin puree'
2 teaspoons cinnamon an ginger
1/2 teaspoon cloves and nutmeg
Adding a little more flour to the dough and proceding with the regular directions.
2/3's of the dough was used for simple dinner rolls. Then I made Autumn Spice Rolls using 1/3 of the dough and rolling it out, spreading with melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, rasins and sliced, dried apricots. Rolling up the dough, slicing into 1" slices and placing on a greased baking sheet.Bake at 350' for 20 to 25 minutes.

While still hot, drizzle a vanilla glaze a top.
Oh my, these were yummy.

The dried apricots came from our oldest daughter, Kera. She brought us a bag. They are such a treat for us in western Washington because apricots don't grow here. The remaining pumpkin was divided into small ziplock bags and frozen other pumpkin dishes.
