They require kneading, rising, and can be tricky to get that perfect gooey, soft delicious consistency. So there is something to be said for a viral hack that insisted you could get all of that in only a few simple steps. This recipe takes that just a step further by turning each roll into a pumping to create a festive fall twist.

The Tiktok Viral Cinnamon Rolls:
The viral recipe calls for the classic Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls but has a few special ingredients that take it to the next level. By adding heavy cream, spices, vanilla and powder sugar, these rolls taste like you labored in the kitchen for hours, when in reality it only took you 10 minutes. 

The Pumpkins:
Turning a cinnamon roll into a pumpkin is a lot easier than you might thing. Using some simple kitchen twine, all you need to do is tie the string around the rolls into a pumpkin shape. It will then cook and stay in that shape, looking just like a pumpkin. Top with a cinnamon stick stem and voila! You have a festive cinnamon roll pumpkin.
