taste of autumn: pumpkin

I know, I know, fall has barely just arrived, but I can't help myself. Fall only lasts so long and I have so many recipes to make as well as new ones to try. We had a fall party at work yesterday and what pleases a crowd more than pumpkin roll?!?
Pumpkin Roll
3 eggs
2/3 C pumpkin
1 C sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
3/4 C flour

Combine all ingredients and beat until smooht. Line a 11" x 14" jelly roll pan with wax paper and grease lightly pour batter onto pan and bake 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Remove onto towel that has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. Removed wax paper while roll is still hot. Roll loosely in towel and refrigerate for 1 hour.

8 oz package cream cheese (room temperature)
1/4 C butter (softened)
1 t vanilla
1 C powdered sugar

Beat all ingredients until smooth. Remove pumpkin roll from fridge. Unroll onto foil which has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. Spread filling on roll. Refrigerate until serving time. May be frozen.
