Monday Match-Up

Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere. Is anyone else just loving the season? I've already made pumpkin cupcakes last week and it wasn't enough. I had to have more. Today we're featuring pumpkin. Yay!

I was very lucky to have some company for the weekend. My sister-in-law Jamie and I were brainstorming pumpkin recipes and she mentioned one of her favorites. She makes these every year for her family and they love it. We made these today for the fam and they were fabulous. Seriously, yum. Make these this weekend. You won't regret it.

Pumpkin Pancakes?  Mmmm...something I have to try!!  I love this time of year!  All the flavors of fall are pretty much awesome.  I decided to make a Pumpkin Roll.  I've been making these for quite a few years.  I had all the ingredients on hand, except for the pumpkin, and that's always a good thing in my book...and my husbands.  :o)  Justy helped me throw them together.  It's fun getting your kids involved in the kitchen.  Hope you enjoy it just as much as my family does.
 Pumpkin Rolls-
3 eggs
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. canned pumpkin
1 tsp lemon juice
3/4 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
powdered sugar

1/4 c. butter softened
6 oz. cream cheese
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a BIG cookie sheet with parchment paper and grease the paper. In a large bowl, beat your eggs until a lemony color.  Gradually add sugar.  Stir in pumpkin, and lemon juice.  In a separate bowl sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt.  Fold into egg mixture.  Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing out the top.  Bake 15 minutes.  Lay a clean dish towel on the counter and sprinkle it with powdered sugar.  Turn your warm cake on the towel and remove paper.  Roll up cake.  Cool either in the fridge or if your in a hurry, throw it in the freezer for a few minutes.

Beat butter, and cream cheese until smooth.  Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla.  Unroll cake and spread with filling and roll back up.  Cut and serve...AND ENJOY!

Have a great week! Erica*
