Thanksgiving is almost here, which means it’s time to start planning the side dishes and desserts to take to that family feast. A Pumpkin Roll is a popular Thanksgiving treat, and this recipe is sure to be a big hit!
I found this recipe online and made it myself for the first time a few weeks ago. Baking is something I just recently took up, so, I’m no master at the art of it. I can mess things up easily, but my Pumpkin Roll turned out to be amazing, not only to look at, but to the taste buds as well. So, when I say this recipe is easy, I really mean it.
This recipe includes pureeing a pumpkin, but feel free to buy a can of pumpkin puree if you wish not to do the pumpkin yourself. It was a fun experience though!
Cream Cheese Filling:
To start, I’m going to warn you that if you’re making your Pumpkin Roll with fresh pumpkin puree, it takes a while to puree. I made the puree the day before I made my Pumpkin Roll, which I highly recommend, or else you’ll be spending half your day in the kitchen making the whole recipe.
