Thanks to a dear friend I now have a wonderful FAST EASY BREAD recipe with pumpkin in it and maybe just a pinch of sugar! But really who can keep track of how much sugar you eat this time of year!

Make these delicious, pumpkin, sugary pieces of perfection and watch everyone fall in love with pumpkin!
