For the Rolls:

  • ¾ cup 2% milk at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 ⅛ teaspoon dry active yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup Cabot White Oak Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • 3-4 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
  • 2 tablespoon kosher salt


  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • ½ cup Cabot White Oak Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • kosher salt


  • Pour the lukewarm milk into the bowl of a stand mixer and then add the sugar. Stir until the sugar and salt until dissolved. Sprinkle the yeast on top and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes or until foamy.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the butter, the pumpkin puree, shredded cheese and half of the chopped rosemary. Add in 1 cup of the flour and mix with the dough hook.
  • Add in flour one cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl and is tacky but not sticky to the touch.
  • Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2-3 minutes or until the dough is soft and elastic. Coat a bowl with olive oil and place the dough in it, turning once to coat the dough. Cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and set aside in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Punch down the dough and divide into 12 evenly sized pieces. Cover the dough with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, add the melted butter and rosemary.
  • Brush the mixture over the rolls and sprinkle with the shredded cheese and kosher salt.
  • Bake for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
