Pumpkin Roll 6x6

I have been in the process of making a 6x6 book with my favorite seasonal recipes since last fall. Here's the page I made (last year) for my Pumpkin Roll recipe. The first time I had some of this pumpkin roll I begged my co-worker's wife for the recipe. She kindly took me aside and said, "it's the recipe off the Libby can". So I came home and found the recipe on the Libby website and it's been a favorite ever since. You can see it by clicking HERE. I will say that it is a little time consuming but oh so worth it! Try it, I think you'll agree!

Here are the recipe details:
1/4 cup powdered sugar (to sprinkle on towel)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup powdered sugar (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan; line with wax paper. Grease and flour paper. Sprinkle towel with powdered sugar.
COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and slat in small bowl. Beat eggs and sugar in large mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle with nuts.
BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.
BEAT cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in small mixer bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
Supplies Used for 6x6 page: More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Very Vanilla card stocks. Wrought Iron corner Punch (retired), both Oval Punches, both Circle Punches, More Mustard brads and Fall Whimsey stamp set (retired)
