Random variation for cinnamon rolls

During a recent visit to my sister, there wasn't enough cinnamon for the filling of some cinnamon rolls that I made.  So, most of the spice that went into the mix was allspice instead of cinnamon.  Those turned out to be some of the tastiest "cinnamon" rolls I've ever made.  

That's an accident I will repeat deliberately in the future.

I experimented with a pumpkin spice roll last week too. I heavily spiced pumpkin with the Sam’s Club pumpkin spice (which tastes very strongly of allspice/cloves/nutmeg/ginger) and brown sugar. The taste of the spices was a welcome change to the normal cinnamon roll.
