Pumpkin Roll Craziness

I baked 6 pumpkin rolls tonight for hubby to take to work on Saturday. I will have to fill them tomorrow, but they are at least baked. It sounds like a lot of work, but it actually isn't because I do them assembly line style. The guys love them and it gives me an excuse to bake without worrying about having it around the house. The recipe is super simple too. It is a great recipe to make for a lot of people because you can slice it pretty thin.

Pumpkin Roll
2/3 C pumpkin
3 eggs
1 C sugar
¾ C flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon

8 oz cream cheese, softened
½ C sugar
1 ½ tsp vanilla

* Beat pumpkin, eggs, and sugar together on medium speed until well combined
* Add flour, baking soda, salt , and cinnamon
* Line cookie sheet with waxed paper and spray with Pam
* Spread mixture evenly over waxed paper making sure there are no thick spots
* Bake at 350₀ for 15 minutes
* Roll up (along with waxed paper) from long side, cool
* Mix cream cheese and sugar together until well combined, add vanilla and mix
* Once roll is completely cool, unroll and spread filling evenly over the middle
* Reroll tightly, removing waxed paper as you go. Cut into slices and keep refrigerated

Other than that not too much going on here. Cody is off for a few days because of Easter. He is not happy about that. We have to take Jeremy's car to the garage tomorrow to finally get the door panel replaced that was ordered about 2 months ago.

I am also happy to report that the snow is slowly starting to melt. There is still a lot out there, but at least we can see the grass around the edge of the driveway.
