Blue Ribbon Recipe

We have always thought rolled desserts are so pretty. This pumpkin roll is the perfect example. They look like they're difficult to prepare, but they really aren't. The cake in this pumpkin roll is moist and spongy with hints of nutmeg in every bit. The sweet cream cheese filling has just the right balance of buttery, tang, and sweetness. This may become your new signature dessert for holiday meals. It's out of this world delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
