Pumpkin Walnut Roll
3 eggs 2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp. ginger
3/4 cup pumpkin 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. lemon juice 1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup all- purpose flour 1 cup chopped walnut
1 tsp. baking powder Powered sugar
Beat eggs for 5 minutes. Add sugar, pumpkin and lemon juice, mixing well. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt, mixing well. Spread batter into a well greased and floured 10 x 15-inch jelly-roll pan. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn roll onto a clean tea towel that has been sprinkled with powered sugar. Roll cake up in towel and set in refrigerator to cool. (I leave it out on the counter).
Filling: Beat together 1 (8-ounce) package softened cream cheese and 4 tablespoons butter. Stir in 1 cup powered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Blend until smooth.
After cake roll has cooled completely, roll out and spread filling all over, roll back up, leaving the towel off. Wrap with freezer wrap or plastic wrap if giving as a gift. Freezes well, slices well. I like slicing while it is frozen. Makes for a better cut. Thaw and serve. Yumminess!!!
Yields: 10-12 servings.
Notes: This looks so pretty sliced with the cream cheese filling all laid out on a crystal plate. You may have guests that are allergic to nuts. May leave nuts totally out of this recipe. I make some with and some without. One large can of pumpkin (29 ounces) makes 3-4 rolls. I do it assembly line. This makes a great gift. It is also good to make for wedding receptions. We use to sell them when our girls were growing up.

Add vanilla, chopped walnuts and mix well. Pour into two well greased and floured bread loaf pans.Bake 1-1/2 hours at 325 degrees. makes 2 loaves.
