I found this recipe on the internet. This stuff is great. It makes a perfect holiday treat (Halloween, THanksgiving, Christmas.) If needed you can freeze the bread ahead of time. By the time you get to your party, it'll be ready to serve.

This recipe is great! I use pecans in mine just because I like them better, but I guess any nut (or none for that matter), it would still be good! :-) I baked my own pie pumpkin because we had one from Halloween. The taste was an amazing difference! Thanks!
I made 4 of these for my Christmas treat baskets this year and was very happy about how they turned out. I did not add the nuts due to the chance of treat recipients maybe having nut allergies but the rolls did not need them. The cream cheese filling is super, I mean SUPER, good too. My sister actually stole some of it to put on toast. If there is something I would advise people of before they try to make this is, do NOT think you can use parchment paper on the cookie sheet you bake the cake in. Yes it will not stick to the parchment at all like it does to the wax paper, but I learned that if the bottom layer doesn't get removed when you pull the wax paper off the roll will crack when you unroll it and fill it. Very disappointing when it happen to 2 of my rolls :-/ but after I figured out what was going on it was an easy fix. Thanks for the great recipe!
I use a lot more than 1/4 cup of powdered sugar on my tea towel (jelly roll experience), real Philly cream cheese and unsalted butter. This is a recipe I have loved for a long time! ;) Make sure you don't cool the cake before you roll it in the towel. If you have trouble peeling off the waxed paper try peeling it in strips. If you grease it well and flour it well you will be able to do this very easily. LOVE IT!!!!!
