Many, many years ago my sister in law use to make this and it was sooooooo good.....still is! My son in law just LOVES it and so do their 3 children. Mark will almost always ask me to bring it when we have a family get together and I do. At first I was intimidated and thought making a roll would be too hard, it's not, it's so easy.
Beat 3 eggs on high until light and fluffy
Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar
2/3 cup pumpkin
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup flour
Grease and flour a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides) or line it with parchment paper
Pour batter into pan, top with finely chopped walnuts
Bake @ 350 for 15 minutes
Loosen edges and flip pan over onto a towel that has been sprinkled with powdered sugar
Roll 'cake' up in the towel
Let cool, unroll, and spread with filling
1 cup powdered sugar
3 ounce pkg cream cheese
4 tsp butter
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
Roll up and sprinkle with additional powdered sugar
On thursday I and 2 friends were suppose to visit one of our Red Hatter who moved out of town. But Janice called at the last minute to say that a grandchild was on her way......so plans changed and I had to eat the pumpkin roll myself.
It freezes well if you make it ahead of time.
Have a great weekend. No plans for us...........and I like it that way!
