Fine, but seemed to need a little something -- I'd try to bring out the pumpkin flavor more -- possibly more spices or adding more pumpkin stuff. I did mine as knots, then brushed them with an egg wash and topped with chopped pepitas, which was a good inspiration. I liked it enough to want to experiment with it some more -- It looks festive and I'm taking these rolls to thanksgiving dinner.

These were OK and certainly have potential, but if I make them again, I will jazz them up a bit. They are soft with a great color that looks nice on the table, but have surprisingly little flavor. I like the suggestion from one reviewer to add pepitas. Definitely recommend an egg wash before baking to give the exterior more crust. I made knots instead of balls.

Like others, I was disappointed by the flavor - there is a distinct lack of pumpkin-y-ness in the final product. I tried adding more spices, but it still came out a bit bland. Probably won't make them again, unless I can figure out a way to pump up the pumpkin flavor. That said, the structure of the rolls themselves is perfectly fine.
