Pumpkin Roll is one of my favorite desserts! I like to make it when I can pick up pumpkin on sale and when I have free cream cheese! My Mother-in-Law passed this recipe to me and always makes it for me for Christmas.  I love making it with my own homemade pumpkin puree too!

You can also make your own Homemade Whipped Cream Cheese Icing.  Did you know that you can freeze cream cheese?  It works great and saves money!  I like to purchase cream cheese in bulk on sale and stockpile it for recipes.  Check out this post Can You Freeze Cream Cheese to find out how!
