Friday's Treat ~ Pumpkin Roll Cake

I am finally posting Friday's Treat!!! I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since my last post.....So, I have yet another pumpkin recipe. Can you tell it is fall?  This is my husbands favorite fall dessert. As soon as the leave start changing he starts talking about pumpkin roll....I'm not sure why he likes it so much, although the cream cheese filling may have something to do with it;) 

So, here is my recipe for Pumpkin Roll Cake. I have never been able to make one that doesn't crack as I roll it up....any suggestions on that? I read somewhere that the more cracks the better because it is supposed to look like a "log"...I suppose if you follow that rule mine looks pretty good then:)

the pumpkin mixture

I think it is impossible to make this cake without parchment paper......

...and powdered sugar!

There are those cracks I mentioned earlier.......uhhh....I will master the art of a seamless  ( non-cracked ) pumpkin roll cake!!
