Cream Cheese Pumpkin Roll

"A nice, pumpkiny dough surrounding a spiraled sweet cream cheese filling. Can be made ahead and frozen for those times when you want to get ahead. From my Great Aunt Triplett. Delicious!"

1hr 10mins
20 approximate slices




  • Grease a 10 by 15" cookie sheet. Line with wax paper and grease again.
  • Mix in order: eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and cinnamon. Sift in the flour. Spread into pan and sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired. They add a nice little crunch.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  • Turn onto a flat tea towel that has been dusted with powdered sugar. Roll from short end (10 inch side) up into a log, waxpaper, towel, and all.
  • Place in fridge and cool completely. Make the filling just before you take the cool log from the fridge. FILLING.
  • Beat together the melted margarine, cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Unroll the log and remove wax paper. Spread the creamy filling onto cake and roll just the cake back up, ignoring towel. Place in aluminum foil and refrigerate.* When ready, slice and serve.
  • *OR freeze for later use. :).

  1. This didn't make 20 slices, but it was still amazing. I almost couldn't resist eating the cream cheese filling. It also seemed very easy to make, so I will be making it again. Next time I will make sure to roll it tighter, but I don't think it affected the taste at all. Thank you so much for this easy yet impressive dessert!
  2. This is the best dessert i know of. A little work but very well worth it. I always double the recipe and make two.
  3. My daughter makes this recipe for most holidays. Mainly because I have a sister who requests this every single time. It is a pretty good recipe if you enjoy pumpkin and cream cheese.


I love baking best of all, especially breads and cookies, and I'm always looking for new bread recipes to try. I also enjoy recipes using fresh fruits that are refreshing and not overly sugary. I am very sporty and active so I like foods that give you a lot of energy with good nutrition too.
