Pumpkin Roll is one of my favorite Thanksgiving 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.
Homemade Pumpkin Roll is a delicious treat that my family loves to indulge in on the holidays. Pumpkin Roll is a dessert that I absolutely love and eat way too much of. But when the holidays are here I just can’t help myself. It does take time to make this Homemade Pumpkin Roll, but it is so worth it in the end.
I love to make 3 or 4 rolls at a time so that I can hand out some to my neighbors, friends or Peyton’s teachers at Christmas time. With each roll I can cut it into 4 sections for four different neighbors and friends. Our neighbors enjoy receiving their Homemade Pumpkin Roll every year.
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!
