This was the first time I ever made a pumpkin roll and it was not that hard. My whole family liked it and has asked me to make another one soon. It was simple to make and delicious to eat.

    first time try

    Sophia Limcharoen from Rochester, NY

    I made this for Thanksgiving and at first, I didn't think it would turn out, but it turned out great and was rather a hit. I would seriously make it again. Just keep patient when making this--it'll turn out.

    Easy Family Favorite

    Marjorie Bishop from Jackson, GA

    My sister-in-law originally made this. She often brings it to family gatherings, especially around the holidays. This last Christmas my daughter made it for her in-laws and they absolutely loved it. This pumpkin roll has become a holiday staple for both our families.

    Sticky Problem

    jeanne henderson from Sykesville, MD

    I have made this recipe many times for family, friends and parent helpers-all with rave reviews! My only problem was keeping the roll from sticking to the towel while cooling. My recipe calls for dusting the cloth with granulated sugar. I can't wait to use your suggestion for using the powdered sugar instead. My two grown sons love it so much, I have occasionally caught them each with an entire roll in their hand eating it like a submarine sandwich!

    I made this for the first time for Thanksgiving. My family loved it. It was much less worked than I anticipated. My only suggestion is: do not wait as long as I have to try any type of jelly roll. Followed the direction and it was "a piece of cake". Enjoy

    Pumpkin Roll

    Debbie Christmas from Panama City, FL

    My 20 yr old son (who doesn't know a thing about cooking)made this pumpkin roll after seeing the picture on the pumpkin can. He printed the recipe off the Libby's site. He did an excellent job and commented on how easy it was because it was listed as intermediate. It was delicious. He made another one for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Family tradition since 1984

    Ann McLeod from Panama City, FL

    Libby's Pumpkin Roll has been a holiday tradition at my home each year since Thanksgiving of 1984. This is a winner each year and has come to be an expected dessert to be served. You can't loose with this recipe. It is a winner hands down each time. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as my family has enjoyed it.

    These are so awesome that people have asked to pay me to make them for them around the holidays!! Last year I made over a dozen (in one evening might I add!!)of these for my coworkers and family!! They are great even after they are frozen and thawed! Great dessert or snack to keep a few in the freezer for unexpected guests!!

    The Tradition continues

    Kevin Cheuvront from Aliquippa, PA

    This is a recipe that my mother started making about 15 year ago...Now I have my own home and I am delighted to make this for my guest to enjoy. I have a slight change to the recipe...I mix a little heavy whipping cream into the filling.It makes a lighter and fluffier filling but still having that good rich cream cheese taste that I love...

I don't know how to calculate the new nutritional counts but I love this recipe so much I know I want to eat it more often, so I need to cut the calories!!

    I have made this pumpkin roll and it is great. I have tried to make the filling sugar-free, too, but it always comes out chemical tasting. Isn't there a way to have a great tasting sugar free cream cheese filling recipe?

    Tasty and attractive

    Nicole DeBord from San Antonio, TX

    I made a modification on this recipe to cut down on fat. I used 8 oz of reduced fat cream cheese whipped together with about 6 oz (almost a whole jar) of marshmallow cream and 1 tsp vanilla for my roll filling, and it was delicious and simple to make. The roll didn't look nice when I first wrapped it up, which worried me, but I sliced off about an inch from both ends and it made all the difference in the world. I liked this recipe and will probably make it again, though I might make a few changes. It's pretty good as is, but there's always room for improvement!

    kaler westfall from lighthouse point, FL

    , Growing up,I was 1 of 5 boys,I was always in the kitchen wanting to cook,help my mom ( I was the only one)y mom passed away when I was 15, but I kept cooking, winning contests at fairs, etc.I worked in restuarants many years, and have a B.A. in resturant management.When I was 18, I visitied my mom's sister in eastern Washington.She gave me a piece of pumpkin roll.I thought it was amazing.She gave me the receipe, and I have made it nearly every holiday season.I had a catering business a couple years, and did holiday gift markets. I sold those pumpkin rolls as individual servings, soon people requested rolls from me. One Dec. I made over 200 rolls, and sold for $20 ea.Now I always at least double the reciepe, if your gonna make a mess, might as well make 2 or 3 rolls. They store well in freezer. One thing I discovered, after you place it on towell with powdered sugar, you can roll it right up in that towell, and refridge or place in freezer a hour or so. Then unroll and spread your cre

    Christa Carter from COLDSPRING, TX

    I made this pumpkin roll to snack on while my man and I were putting on a roping event and it was sooo good! I used fat-free cream cheese, Splenda brown sugar, fat free "butter", and sliced almonds to make it even more healthy. It came out to be about 75 calories and almost no fat per serving, so it's a cake that even I can enjoy, without feeling horrible after eating it! AWESOME recipe!

    Of all of the pumpkin roll recipes that I have tried this is my most favorite of all. For my family, I double the filling recipe. because that is the way they like it. This is their favorite winter dessert. I do not worry about having any left, because if they don't eat it at dinner, they all take some home with them.

    I tried this recipe after finding it on your website three years ago. I have made it every year since, and it has become a big hit with our family. When we go to dinner at our son's house (which is about a six hour drive), everyone requests my pies and desserts. My son always insists that we leave the pumpkin roll with them if there is any left.

    Healthy Pumpkin Roll/Loaf

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    I've never had to much luck with making pumpkin "rolls", so I make this in two loaf pans. Being diabetic, I've been using Splenda for baking ever since it came on the market. I use the Splenda brown sugar, as I prefere the deeper richer taste. Once the loaves are cooled, (I refrigerate them over night) I cut them into three layers, and fill them with that yummy filling, I also add a bit of cinnamon to it. This is a great recipe. I make extra and keep them in the freezer till I'm ready to use it, then I just make the filling, and I have a great dessert. Thanks for remembering those of us who do have health issues, but still want to enjoy our life, as well as our food.
