Cinnamon Rolls

Today, I made cinnamon rolls with my family. They turned out scrumptious, and everyone was addicted at first bite.

The dough, which we made from scratch (using yeast), took a little while to rise, but the fluffy result was well worth it.

The icing was something of my own creation, although the recipe did suggest confectioners sugar and milk. I used about 1/2 cup milk, and 2 cups (give or take) confectioners sugar, until it got a little thicker. Then I warmed up about 4 tablespoons of cream cheese and whisked it into the icing.

I got the idea from another blog, J's Kitchen.
Here is the recipe.

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I have made these cupcakes before, but I have never put them up here. 
This is one of my favorite recipes, and I think it ties in well with Autumn. 

For the pumpkin flavor, the recipe called for one can of pure pumpkin puree.

The recipe had many spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger.
