Cream Cheese Pumpkin Roll

These beautiful log or roll-type cakes look really hard to make, but they’re easier than you might think! Moreover, if I can make them, anyone can. A good friend, Christa, gave me her recipe back in the early 2000s. She had a long list of people clamoring to get on her baking list every holiday season and I couldn’t blame them! She’s an awesome baker and these things are the bomb! After that first taste, my family was hooked. They request a Cream Cheese Pumpkin Roll every Thanksgiving and Christmas. 😊

Firstly, if you want the cream cheese layer bright white, don’t add the extra pumpkin pie spice to it. Secondly, if you want the pumpkin roll to taste super yummy, add it. 😋 Some logs roll up better than others and therefore may look prettier when sliced. However, they taste so fantastic, no one cares!

The powdered sugar part is a little messy, but nothing a wet dish rag can’t clean up. And the rolling up of the log isn’t at all difficult. Have a large thin towel such as a tea towel or flour sack towel dusted with powdered sugar ready on the counter. Then, as soon as the cake comes out of the oven, turn it out onto the towel and roll it up. Easy-peasy. You’ll see. 😁
