We LOVE Pumpkin

It was time again for a gathering of my dear college girlfriends. Two years ago, we met up at the Drake in Chicago and shopped, ate, and giggled till we dropped. I stayed up WAY past my 9 PM bedtime. Yes, I’m OLD. The last two years we’ve met back for Homecoming and relived our collegiate days, though again we actually went to bed versus staying up all night like back in the day. Through Facebook, I got requests to bring goodies again to the football tailgate. Something pumpkin and something chocolate topped their list. I had not made this pumpkin roll with a cream cheese filling in years. In fact, I think my college freshman was in early elementary school, so I had to blow bit of dust off the recipe to start the process.

A Classic Pumpkin Roll

I used the classic Libby’s pumpkin roll recipe with a delectable cream cheese filling, only tweaking the recipe slightly. I added ginger and decreased the amount of cloves and also eliminated the nuts. It may not be perfect tailgate food as it requires a fork, but it certainly disappeared fast!
