Susan's Perfect Pumpkin Roll

This recipe came to me via Facebook, from a web site called LovePomegranatehouse.com.
I have altered the spices and increased the filling ingredients as I feel like it could really use more filling. The taste of the cake is DELICIOUS!
And this is not hard to do at all. I had put off making this because rolling a cake seemed like a difficult task - but it was very simple.
Hope you enjoy my take on this.

Step-By-Step

Step 1 Direction Photo

1Set cream cheese and butter out to soften to room temperature. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper and grease and flour the paper. I used Baker's Joy spray to make this step easier. Sprinkle a clean kitchen towel with the 1/4 cup of powdered sugar.

2In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. In the large bowl of a mixer, beat eggs, sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla until smooth. Add in pumpkin and beat a few more seconds. Stir in the flour mixture. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
