Pumpkin Roll

Sena Wilson


This recipe is a favorite for our family. It is especially requested around the holidays. For our son, any time is fine with him! It is easy, delicious, and eye-catching when served to your guests. I use the left-over pumpkin to make Pumpkin, Orange-Date Cookies (posted in JAP).
