Pumpkin Roll

Another pumpkin dessert. This is my favorite time of year for desserts, I'll eat anything with pumpkin in it. This is Kim's recipe from the Sorensen family cookbook, but it deserves a place on Eat or Die.

3 eggs                                                    
1 C. sugar
3/4 C. pumpkin puree
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 C. + 2 TBS flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1 C. chopped wall nuts

Beat eggs for 5 minutes.  Gradually add sugar, pumpkin, and lemon juice while beating.  Combine flour, baking powder, spices and salt.  Fold into pumpkin mixture.  Pour into 15x10 cookie sheet lined on the bottom with parchment paper and spray with pam (if you dont have parchment you can generously grease and flour the pan.  I've had bad experiences doing this so I don't recommend it.)  Drop pan on counter several times to smooth and pop bubbles. Sprinkle nuts on top.  Bake 375* for 15 minutes.  Immediately after baking turn pan over and remove cake onto a tea towl sprinkled with powdered sugar, roll up and cool completely.


8 oz. cream cheese
4 TBS butter
1 C. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients together.  When cake is cooled, carefully unroll.  Gently spread filling evenly across cake.  Roll up the cake cover in siran wrap and put in freezer. an hour before serving remove from freezer and let sit 15 min, cut into slices while still somewhat frozen. Let thaw before serving.
