Pumpkin Vanilla and Cinnamon Scrolls
Yes pumpkin and vanilla are not common scroll flavors or textures to be included in a recipe, but this recipe is full of surprises.
All I can say is OMG, after eating these I never thought I was a scroll lover but im now converted!
Though you can’t taste the pumpkin, what it does is adds a fluffiness to the scrolls, making them so light.
The vanilla (especially in the icing) along with the cinnamon work brilliantly together.
The best thing about this recipe is the filling. Yes the icing and scroll dough is super tasty the filling is to die for.
I don’t even like walnuts but could eat the mix straight!
