Pumpkin Cream Cheese Rolls

This past weekend I threw a craft night for a few of my closest girl friends. We made these darling count down to candy blocks. The advent calendar was so easy to make and I can't wait to use it to count down to Halloween with my kids this next month. My cute kidlets are chomping at the bit to start rotating the blocks! While we were busy crafting we had some delicious desserts and snacks to munch on! One of my all-time favorite fall desserts is Pumpkin Cream cheese Rolls. These cream cheese rolls are delicious and even though they might look intimidating to make they are really simple and very elegant!
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Rolls
1/4 cup powdered sugar (to sprinkle on towel)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 cup walnuts (optional), chopped
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup powdered sugar (optional)
For Cake:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan; line with wax paper. Grease and flour paper. Sprinkle a thin, cotton kitchen towel with powdered sugar. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt in small bowl. Beat eggs and sugar in large mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle with nuts.Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.
For Filling:
Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in small mixer bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
Makes 10 servings
Note: Be sure to put enough powdered sugar on the towel when rolling up the cake so it will not stick.
