Pumpkin Log Rolls

Fall is in the air again! Normally Spring is my favorite season but this year I have really been enjoying the fall scents, pumpkin desserts, spiced candles, etc etc :) So this year Fall has been in a close race with Spring for 1st place ;)

I stocked up on Pumpkin at Sam's Club the other week so I should be in good shape for a while. I am also wanting to bake pumpkins this year and freeze some of my own pumpkin so I have it on hand year round and don't have to buy it!

Today I am sharing a recipe with you from my sister-in-law. My brother thinks she makes 'thee' best Pumpkin Log Rolls in the world and they are pretty amazing, if I say so myself. He doesn't follow my writings so I don't need to worry about his head swelling a few sizes by reading this.

Here's the recipe:

Pumpkin Log Roll

1 c wh sugar
3 eggs
2/3 c pumpkin
1 teas soda
3/4 c flour
1/2 teas cinnamon
1/2 teas nutmeg
1 teas Ginger
3/4 c chopped nuts- opt

Filling: 8 oz cream cheese
2 T butter
1 c powder sugar

Beat eggs till fluffy, add sugar and beat again. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. 
Pour on greased & floured jelly roll pan (11 x 14) or put wax paper on pan, sprinkle chopped nuts on top. 
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. 
When done roll in tea towel sprinkled lightly with powder sugar, slowly peel off wax paper and roll up with the towel, refrigerate until cool, then unroll & spread filling on, roll up again, this time without the towel & refrigerate for an hour before serving. Cut in slices and enjoy!

Go ahead, dig in and enjoy :)
