Pumpkin Rolls

This is one of my all time FAVORITE recipes. It is a little bit complicated but, I have found i can whip two rolls out in about 40 minutes, so it's not as bad as you would expect. It is so unbelievably good that it is worth it anyway. This is an aweful picture, it doesn't do it justice.


1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs
2/3 cup mashed (canned) pumpkin

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 15 X 10-inch jelly roll pan. Cut wax paper to fit the bottom of the pan and leaving about an inch overhang on each of the short ends of the pan. Lightly grease the wax paper and sides of the jelly roll pan.

Mix the sugar, flour, salt, soda, cinnamon, eggs and pumpkin in a large bowl. Pour mixture over the waxed paper and smooth it evenly. Bake for 14-15 minutes until edges pull away from the sides of the pan.

Lay a large dishtowel (try to use a towel with as little texture as possible) on the counter top. Spread a thick layer of powdered sugar over the towel. When the cake comes out of the oven, turn the pan upside down on the towel so the wax paper is on the top. Gently peel off the wax paper, being careful not to tear the roll. Starting at one of the short ends, roll the pumpkin cake up with the towel to cool. While the roll is cooling (about 20 minutes), mix the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar together until it is light and creamy. Once the roll is cool, unroll and with an offset spatula, carefully spread filling in an even layer over the cake. Roll it up without the towel and place in the refrigerator (covered with plastic wrap) for about an hour before serving

For whatever reason... it has been impossible for me to find pumpkin. So once you get a can save it! You can make about four rolls with just one can, so put it in the freezer. I know, I know this is my theory on everything. BUT REALLY i was shocked at how well the pumpkin thawed!!!
