Pumpkin Roll

Recently my hubby turned the big 3-0. One of his favorite deserts is Pumpkin Roll, so I made that instead of cake. I wouldn't say it is a healthy alternative to cake but is sure is yummy! I am still working on making mine look as delightful as my mom's.




Pumpkin Roll
Ingredients
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp lemon juice
¾ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt
1/2 -3/4 cup. chopped walnuts (I would chop them up more than I did)
powdered sugar for dusting towel.
Filling:
6 oz. Cream Cheese
4tbs Butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375. Grease and flour a 15 x 10 baking pan. Beat eggs on high for 5 minutes. Gradually beat in sugar, pumpkin, and lemon juice. Mix together dry ingredients, fold into pumpkin mixture. Spread in greased and floured 15 x 10 pan. Top with chopped walnuts. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Turn out on to dish towel dusted with powdered sugar and roll with towel. Let cool completely. Beat filling ingredients together until well mixed. Unroll and spread filling evenly. Roll and Enjoy!
