Thanksgiving Treats

This past weekend all my family who won't be around for Thanksgiving gathered for a dessert night. There was lots of good food. I of course could not decide what to take...so I took 3 things:)
Pumpkin Roll
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
powdered sugar

6 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Line a greased jelly roll pan with wax paper and grease paper. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs for 5 minutes. Add the sugar, flour, pumpkin, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, salt, and nutmeg; mix well. Add lemon juice. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan; sprinkle with pecans.
Bake at 375* for 15 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes. Turn cake onto kitchen towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll, starting with the short end and cool completely on wire rack.
In a large bowl, combine filling ingredients; beat until smooth. Unroll cake; spread filling over cake to 1/2 inch of the edges. Roll up again. Place seam side down on serving platter. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Sprinkle additional powdered sugar on top before serving..
Serves 12
