Makes 1 large pumpkin


3-1 / 2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour

1 / 4 cup sugar

1 envelope FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon salt

1 / 2 cup water

1 cup pumpkin pie filling

1 / 4 cup butter or margarine

1 large egg


Powdered Sugar Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

2 to 3 tablespoons milk

Food coloring, orange for pumpkin and green for stem (optional)

Raisins, Dried apple pieces for decoration

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Heat water, pumpkin, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Reserve a plum-size piece of dough. Divide remaining dough into 4 equal pieces; roll each piece to 7-inch rope. Place side-by-side on greased baking sheet. Pinch ends together to shape into pumpkin. Shape reserved dough into stem. Place over top of pumpkin; pinch to seal. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.

Bake at 375oF for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack. Decorate with colored Powdered Sugar Glaze, raisins and apple pieces to resemble a face, if desired.

Powdered Sugar Glaze
In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk. Stir until smooth.

To color glaze:
Green: Add 1 to 2 drops green food color to 2 tablespoons Powdered Sugar Glaze.
Orange: Add 2 to 3 drops each of red and yellow food color to remaining Powdered Sugar Glaze.
