This sounds pretty great Jane..thanks. Happy Halloween!


My mother-in-law makes this every year for Thanksgiving and it rocks! She makes one roll just for me :)

My friend makes these every year around the holidays, and they are always delicious. I recently found this recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting on MSN, and I thought it would be a perfect compliment to the cake roll. I forwarded it to my friend, and I thought you might like it as well.

Pumpkin Cream-Cheese Frosting

Makes 3 1/2 cups


1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup pumpkin purée
1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick), softened
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted


Make the frosting: Blend the cream cheese, pumpkin purée, butter, orange juice, zest, and vanilla in a large bowl using an electric mixer set at medium speed until smooth. Add the sugar and continue to beat until light and creamy-about 5 more minutes.

Ooh, thanks East Coast Girl! That sounds wonderful - and it also uses up some of the pumpkin that remains in the can when you make this recipe. I'll definitely try it the next time I make this.
