So Why Pumpkin Rolls?

February 11, 2015

Of all the desserts in the world, all the yumminess that there is to partake of, why did I choose pumpkins rolls?  Well, honestly, it didn’t start out that way.  In the very first draft, they were, in fact, cinnamon rolls.  And the ones that I thought of, when I think of cinnamon rolls, are the ones my grandmother used to make.  They were just so good. But cinnamon rolls…they’ve been done before.  I mean, really, that’s a treat that a lot of people put in their books.  Of course, there’s a reason for that.  They are really dang good.

But I wanted something different, something other, so I started thinking about all the different desserts that I enjoy.  Now, granted, I’m a really picky eater.  I’m not a big fan of cake (don’t judge me) and cookies are too generic.  I wanted something that couldn’t be bought at any old store, something that stood out, something that would make your mouth water.

Therefore, the one treat that I don’t have often, but enjoy immensely when I do.  Pumpkin roll. pumpkin rolls

I’ve only made it once, but my local grocery store makes an awesome one I can only get in the fall.  Pumpkin season, you know.  But it’s definitely a dessert that catches my eyes, and makes my mouth water.  It’s something I like to savor, having a slice in the evening.  And I mourn a little when it’s gone.

So I knew what Will was tasting when he took that first bite.  And while it doesn’t inspire in me the same reaction that it inspires in Will, I knew what deliciousness he had on his tongue in that scene.

Now I want to hear from you.  What are your favorite desserts?  What is something that makes you make the yummy appreciative noises?  Comment by 4:30 PM EST and you’ll be entered to win an ebook copy of my story!

    I like a chocolat dessert we in the Netherlands call “Hemelse Modder” (translation: heavenly mud) :)
    It’s very heavy on the calories, so it’s better to not have it every day but on special occasions.

    I just looked that up Angela, and oh my goodness, that looks fantastic! I’m not a huge chocolate fan, but I would sure eat that! :D

    I’m a huge fan of pumpkin baked goods, but I’ve never had pumpkin roll – pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, all yummy. I’ll have to look for pumpkin roll this fall. It’s difficult for me to pick a favorite dessert because I have a sweet tooth, but maybe cheesecake or a fudgy brownie.

    I love all pumpkin baked treats too, Antonia. But pumpkin roll might be my favorite. It’s delish! :)
