One thing that amazes me is that until my mother in law made one a few years ago – I had never had a pumpkin roll…no one in life should be with out the amazing goodness of such a desert…


1/4 cup powdered sugar (to sprinkle on
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan; line with wax
paper. Grease and flour paper. Sprinkle a thin, cotton kitchen towel with
powdered sugar.
COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt
in small bowl. Beat eggs and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until
thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared
pan. Sprinkle with nuts.
BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when
touched. (If using a dark-colored pan, begin checking for doneness at 11
minutes.) Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully
peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end.
Cool on wire rack.

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar (optional for decoration)

BEAT cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in
small mixer bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake. Spread cream cheese
mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at
least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
Cooks Tip: Be sure to put enough powdered sugar on the towel when
rolling up the cake so it will not stick.

Estimated Times: Preparation – 45 minutes; Cooking – 13 minutes; Cooling
Time – 1 hour refrigerating.
