pumpkin roll

pumpkin roll

3 eggs, beaten
1 c. granulated sugar
2/3 c. pure pumpkin
3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon

1 ~ 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 c. confectioners sugar
4 tbs. butter
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

To prepare roll, beat eggs for 5 minutes. Add sugar, pumpkin, flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix well. Pour into greased and floured 10 X 15 inch jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min. Turn baked roll out onto long length of paper towel or kitchen towel, that has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll the cake into the towel, beginning with the narrow end. Let cool about 1/2 hour. Meanwhile beat together all filling ingredients until smooth.
Unroll cake and remove paper towel. Spread filling on top side of cake roll and roll up again without towel. Refrigerate to chill, slice and serve.

This is a family and friends absolute favorite. I get requests to make this all the time.
