  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat water, milk and butter to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Beat in egg. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Add the pumpkin, cinnamon, salt, ginger and nutmeg. Punch dough down; turn onto a floured surface. Roll into a 20-in. x 10-in. rectangle; spread pumpkin mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges. Sprinkle with nuts and raisins. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch ends together to form a ring. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Brush dough with egg yolk. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. For glaze, combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm ring. Sprinkle with nuts.

I just made this. It came out very good. My icing was not as thick as it should have been or I was too impatient to wait to icing it and try a piece. Very good recipe!

This turned out beautifully. There is no need to change any of the ingredients as it has the perfect amount of sweetness and spice. I did use bread flour in place of the all-purpose flour. My...

Very nice! I followed the recipe exactly. Didn't have any of the problems others had. My family enjoyed it as well. Thanks!

My family loved this. I did add about 1 1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice. We like our pumpkin spicy, I left out the raisins since the kids and hubby hate them also left the nuts off. I did have problems...

Delicious! One of our new favorites! Skipped the raisins and added a little extra spices. Cooked perfectly and came out moist.

The only things that I changed were that I added the nuts and raisins to the filling, just read it wrong. Tasted great, takes a long time to make, has to rise 2 times for an hour each, but it i...

One of the best recipes I've made. Made the dough in my bread machine. After the first rise in the machine, I prepared it and placed it on a cookie sheet and let it rise again and bake. I use...
