Let Me See That Pumpkin Roll

Sorry for the totally lame 90s hip-hop reference. It's just one of those mornings.

THANK you - Cyndi - for reminding me to post this recipe! I'm glad you liked it! The recipe for the pumpkin roll (in the pictures from the post below) is RIGHT here for your baking pleasure. Enjoy!

PUMPKIN ROLL
3 eggs
1 c sugar
2/3 c pumpkin
1 tsp lemon juice
1 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
dash of cloves

CREAM CHEESE FILLING
1 c powdered sugar
1 stp vanilla
1 package 8 oz cream cheese
4 Tbsp butter
*All ingredients must be at room temperature. Beat all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.


Beat eggs together in large bowl. Slowly add sugar, pumpkin, and lemon juice. Sift flour and baking powder together and add while mixing. Add the salt and spices. Grease large cookie sheet with shortening. Spread mixture evenly in the sheet. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Run knife around edges and immediately turn onto kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar. (Try to run a spatula under the whole thing--sometimes when you flip it over, the middle will stick to the pan and break) Roll the cake in the towel and let it cool. I roll it so it is skinnier and longer rather than thicker and shorter - that way, you can eat like EIGHT pieces and it's not a big deal because they're small. :)

Unroll and spread with filling. Roll again tightly; wrap the pumpkin roll in wax paper and then tin foil. Store in the freezer until ready to serve.

Allison! I love recipes and blogs and I love them even more when they're together. Hooray! I often have Tales from Greenwood Manor on my blog if you care to check it out (that's where Grandpa Furniss lives, in case you didn't recognize the fancy title). Where are your Vermont pictures? - Cousin Nicole
