These are called “Pumpkin Cozy Rolls” for a reason.
The dough is so downright pillowy to the touch, you’ll be hard pressed not to lay your head on it to take a nap.
The recipe is from the new “Choosing Sides” (Andrews McMeel), of which I received a review copy. Food writer Tara Mataraza Desmond has crafted this cleverly named cookbook that’s perfect for this time of year — when you’re scratching your head for new side dishes to add pizazz to your holiday table.
The book includes 130 recipes for breads, salads, veggie dishes, grains and stuffings. The directions are detailed and even include suggestions for main courses to pair each side with.
With Halloween here tomorrow, I couldn’t help but be thinking of pumpkins.
