Fall is here, which means tis the season for my favorite pie – PUMPKIN!

But pumpkin pie doesn’t just have to be for dessert. Over the summer, I used King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls to make Blueberry French Toast. I used the same technique this morning to make these fall beauties.

Holy schnauzers were they good. The bread has a crunchy sugar coating, the filling was naturally sweet and the maple glaze…let me just say…I haven’t smiled this big since my husband was home.

I bet these will put a smile on your face, too.Pumpkin Pie French Toast from Zestuous

  1. This was delicious! My whole family loved it. I hope you don’t mind, I’m going to share it on my blog and link back to your site.

  2. Decided to make these for thanksgiving. I made a practice batch tonight. I recommend you use *at least* 50% more of the cinnamon/sugar mixture, and not quite as much of the pumpkin mixture.

  3. Beautiful! I think the smell alone will be worth baking these!
    yet I am sure the taste was phenomenal too
