Give me a pumpkin roll instead of pumpkin pie!  I am not a fan of pie in any method.  But, I still like pumpkin tastes and desserts.

One method I can still take pleasure in pumpkin for dessert on Thanksgiving is with a pumpkin roll.  The mix of the pumpkin and cream cheese icing….well…I’ll let you put your own palate to the test and let me understand what you believe!
