To Make These Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, You'll Need:

I'm including them in my buying guide below.
To make this Instant Pot recipe, the top tool you're going to need.... is an Instant Pot!
If you don't already have an Instant Pot, I strongly suggest buying an Instant Pot model with the crisping lid and air fryer capabilities... so you can make easy air fryer favorites like Air Fryer French Fries!
Nonstick Cutting Tool
A nonstick cutting tool makes cutting dough easy and effortless.
IP Nonstick Pot
A nonstick Instant Pot pan to cook cinnamon rolls in is essential for this recipe - to save tons of time and frustration with the cleanup to a minimal later.
Smooth Cutting Board or Pastry Prep Mat
A smooth, well-waxed cutting board helps to make rolling the dough easier - if you have a cutting board you're looking to fix up, be sure to check out my guide for caring for cutting boards here.
How To Make Pumpkin Instant Pot Cinnamon Rolls
These cinnamon rolls use a store bought dough to come together quickly - so you can mix your filling, roll out the dough, fill, and cook!
Well... there are some more complicated steps than that, but I'm going to share some tips below to ensure your cinnamon rolls come out perfectly, every time.
How To Make Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Filling
These easy tips will help you make perfect filling every time.
Don't worry too much about chunks or not having everything blended perfectly.
If mixture is too liquid, you can let it set for a moment or two for the butter to re-set.
You'll want it to be pourable/spreadable, but not thin and watery.
How To Make Cinnamon Rolls
These cinnamon rolls are super easy to make and fill - but there are a couple tips to keep yours perfect, every time!
Don't worry too much about the shape of the cinnamon rolls, they will look a bit anemic when you put them into the instant pot.
Soon your rolls will get puffy, big, and look picture-perfect!
How To Cook Cinnamon Rolls in an Instant Pot
Cooking cinnamon rolls in the instant pot is pretty easy - but it can be really intimidating, especially if you aren't incredibly used to your Instant Pot.
I'm adding a couple of my foolproof tips below.
Make sure pan is prepared well with nonstick baking spray.
Cover With Paper Towel and Foil
Cover cinnamon rolls with a paper towel in the pan, and then cover pan with foil. This will keep moisture needed to seal the Instant Pot from making the cinnamon rolls soggy.
What To Do If Undercooked
We tested this recipe to be sure it didn't come out undercooked - but if your rolls do come out a bit undercooked, add back to Instant Pot, seal, and cook for additional 5 minutes.
Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll Icing
This cream cheese frosting is a perfect choice for the sweet cinnamon and pumpkin cinnamon rolls - the rich flavor from cream cheese mellows some of the sweetness, and is a breeze to cream together and whip.
If you want a thicker frosting that isn't melted much, be sure to let cinnamon rolls cool before icing.
For even better results, remove from pan and ice, so you can get even more icing on the rolls!

How To Store Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
We've never been able to keep these cinnamon rolls around long - but they can be made ahead of time and saved for later!
You can make cinnamon rolls ahead of time and serve, iced, at any time - just be sure to refrigerate cinnamon rolls in an airtight container for up to four days.
While these cinnamon rolls can be frozen and thawed overnight in the refrigerator, they are much better freshly made - freezing can dry out dough and make the icing watery while thawing.
