Flavored Butters – Maple and Pumpkin Spice

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

 Now, this year I decided to talk flavored butters – maple and pumpkin spice, to mix it up a little with the usual rolls.

First I took the same method that I use to make honey butter but use maple syrup instead of honey.  This was my favorite of the two.  The other is a pumpkin spice butter that uses pumpkin. This butter also includes orange zest along with a little sugar and pumpkin spice.  This butter tastes like thanksgiving . You get a light pumpkin flavor with the slight spiciness of the pumpkin spice. It balances out with the fresh orange flavor you get from the zest.

In the past, I have done posts for rolls as part of the Thanksgiving meal.  I have many yummy options that vary on time – so you can pick what you have time for.  Also, I have done a post about different ways to shape your rolls. I did find a tip from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe (the first blog I followed). I wanted to share it with all of you in reguards to rolls.

Mel makes the Lion House roll recipe too (which is my fav). She said that the rolls “can be made, shaped, placed on the baking sheet. Just over with greased plastic wrap the night before. Refrigerate overnight and take the rolls out about 1 1/2 to 2 hours (depending on the warmth of your kitchen) before you want to bake them. Then let them come to room temperature and double before baking. I like to bake the rolls the morning of Thanksgiving. I keep them covered with a towel to stay tender – it helps free up oven space later in the day.”

So glad that Mel shared her tip! I will be trying this method out on Thanksgiving day with the Lion House Rolls.
