Prep time: 30 minutes
Bake time: 12-15 minutes
Servings: 10
Ingredients:
3 large Eggs, separated
1 cup Sugar, divided
2/3 cup Pumpkin puree
3/4 cup All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Salt
Filling:
8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons Butter, softened
1 cup Confectioners’ sugar
3/4 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Additional Confectioners’ sugar, optional
Directions:
1. Line a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with waxed paper; grease the paper and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and pumpkin puree, beating on high until sugar is almost dissolved.

7. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until smooth.
8. Unroll cake; spread filling evenly to within 1/2 inch of edges. Roll up again. Cover and freeze until firm.
9. May be frozen for up to 3 months. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before cutting. Dust with confectioners’ sugar if desired.
