PostHeaderIcon Pumpkin Pie Brioche Cinnamon Crescent Rolls….8 HBin5

I feel like Mother’s day arrived already. My oldest is coming home this weekend and we have not seen him since September.
That means he was not home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Poor me, poor me and him too of course.
See we have a little Ocean separating us for a few more month therefore It was not possible for him to come in the 4 days or so he got off during the holidays.
Now A-school is over and he has about ten days off which means he will be home on Mothers day. Now all we have to do is keep our fingers crossed that this little volcano in Iceland keeps it’s peace.
Of course my son loves backed goods, which 19 year old does not so I am baking up a storm. Gotta keep that oven primed and ready.
I found a large can of pumpkin puree in the cupboard and I took Michelle’s (Big Black Dogs) offer to do the pumpkin pie brioche for May 1st HBin5 bread braid since we had made the chocolate espresso brioche for Valentines day.

OMG, I have missed out big time and so have you! The guys in the house (my dear husband and younger son) where over the moon especially my husband.
That cream cheese Frosting is the dot on the i, just perfect.  2010-04-29 I made half a recipe and of that half recipe half went into the crescents and the other half was turned into a pumpkin cinnamon bread. Delicious!
So if you want to surprise Mom on Mother’s day and if you are not a great baker but can follow instructions why not make this pumpkin cinnamon bread for her breakfast. start it Friday before Mother’s day. Get the dough out Saturday late afternoon and bake it up in the evening. Wishing you great success!


To see what the rest of HBin5 Group made with these dough’s head on over to Michelle's blog “Big Black dogs”

1 tablespoon kosher salt (increase or decrease to taste)
2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 1/4 cups lukewarm water

1 15 ounce can pumpkin puree

The authors have the recipe on their webpage so just follow this link for the instructions.

Honey Cream cheese Icing:
this Icing comes very close to the HBin5 version. Use 4 oz of cream cheese though. More honey is always good.

I agree. Honey Cream Cheese icing is our favorite too - I have to force myself to put it on the bread and not just eat it all. Great job!

oh wow have fun with your son and your pumpkin brioche

Carolyn™ said...

I have to also agree the Honey Cream Cheese was great, you make me look mean with my smaller quantities and your crescents are just marvellous.

Aparna said...

Looks good. I made my rolls with the brioche from ABin5 and they were delish!
Enjoy your time with your son and the family.

Beautiful bread.

Love your crescent rolls........

I loved the creamed cheese frosting too! I did use the chocolate espresso bread again but I think I need to try the pumpkin pie brioche to make the crescent rolls next time - they sound wonderful.


Bonnie said...

We love pumpkin bread at our house. I can't wait to try this recipe. Keeping my fingers crossed that your son's plans aren't hampered. Our Paris/Germany plans were cancelled and my daughter was stalled in London for a week because of the Volcano. Good luck and hopefully your son will be home.

Joanne said...

It's so sweet that your son gets to come home for mother's day. I'm so happy for you!

These crescents look delicious. It would be dangerous for me to have that honey cinnamon cream cheese around...there's a high likelihood I'd eat it all!

Michelle said...

I love all the squiggles of cream cheese on top of the Crescents! So cute!

I knew you and your family would love the Pumpkin Pie Brioche! It is just so good!

Ezzie said...

Great job! But i don't know how you restrained and made only 1/2 recipe. I can never do that! LOL.

Delicious! I loved this dough! Your pumpkin cinnamon bread looks wonderful too!

Those rolls looked delish.
