Pour 1/2 cup of the warm milk into a small bowl. Add the yeast and allow it to bloom for 10 minutes.
Whisk in the honey, 2 eggs, butter, pumpkin pie mix, salt and white chocolate chips. Mix in the flour, slowly. While mixing, carefully add the 1 cup of milk.
Once the mixture is dough like, dump it onto a counter and knead 4 times. If it's too sticky add a little flour to smooth it out. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to double in size; about 20 minutes.
Lightly flour your work surface and place the dough on it. Pull off pieces about the size of a baseball (or your preferred size) and make them into balls. Place the balls on a parchment lined baking sheet. Continue until all the dough is used. Cover again with plastic wrap and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. I like to sit my buns on the oven to rise while it's preheating. This take between 10 and 15 minutes.
Uncover the buns and cut crosses into the tops. Brush the tops with the beaten egg and bake for 20 minutes or until browned.
To ice the tops I melted 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips and piped the crosses on with that. Yummy!
