We’re fast approaching the annual onset of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte addictions worldwide, which brings with it a renewed desire to eat ALL THE PUMPKIN-FLAVORED THINGS. It’s easy to find recipes for pumpkiny desserts and drinks, but what about breakfast?
The marvelous get crocked has you covered with these scrumptious pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls, which you can make in the crock pot. YES, THE CROCK POT. So easy. I don’t see any excuse for not having a batch of these brewing all day, every day. Think of all the deliciousness, not to mention all the disgusting child-related stinky-ness that would be replaced by the delightful combined aroma of pumpkin pie and cinnamon rolls.
As you can tell, CraftFail friend Kat, from How To, How Hard, and How Much, had a lot of great reasons to test them out. Unfortunately, she reported that, “I knew something was wrong from the very beginning. Not a good sign.”
She found the dough to be… not very doughy, mostly because it called for A LOT of liquids. A quick check of the measurements she used against the recipe shows she used quite a bit more water than was listed, so either get crocked has fixed a typo since Kat’s attempt, or Kat needs reading glasses. Either way, she didn’t have high hopes when she plopped them into the slow cooker.
Check out Kat’s blog for the details – but suffice it to say, the results were not pretty.
