Pumpkin Roll


It's finally time to start sharing recipes for the holidays. November is pumpkin season at my house. One of my favorite pumpkin recipes is my Aunts, Pumpkin Roll. Maybe it's the love she adds to her cooking or the memories of the holidays spent with family. Whatever the reason, when I think of November, my first thought is warm Pumpkin Rolls.

Of course, it only makes sense for me to share my belPumpkin Roll Recepi with you. I hope that you, too, will enjoy this autumn treat as much as we do.

Here is what you'll need.

1. 3 eggs

2. 1 cup white sugar

3. 2/3 cup pumpkin puree

4. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

5. 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

6. 1 teaspoon baking powder

7. 1 teaspoon ground ginger

8. 1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling

1. 1(8 ounces) package cream cheese softened.

2. 1 cup confectioners sugar

3. 1/4 cup butter softened

4. 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree

5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

OPTIONAL: Crushed up walnuts pressed on the top.


Directions:

1. preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan and line with wax paper.

2. Beat eggs and white sugar in a large bowl until well blended; stir in 2/3 cup pumpkin puree.

3. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in another bowl; stir into egg mixture until just blended. Pour mixture into prepared jelly roll pan.

4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn the cake out onto a clean towel. Remove and discard wax paper. Roll cake up into the towel, starting with the short end. Cool.

5. Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, butter, 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract in another bowl until smooth.

6. Spread a large sheet of plastic wrap on a work surface. Place and unroll cake over plastic and spread with the prepared filling: re-roll cake and wrap with plastic. Refrigerate, seam-side down, until chilled, about 2 hours.

I add a little powder sugar and some chopped walnuts to the towel before I roll it. Slice it into 1-inch pieces, serve warm or cold.

I hope you and your family enjoy it. ~Dana
