Pumpkin Roll

This was my first time making one of these.  So Yummy!  And alot simplier than I thought it would be.
This recipe came from another Blog that I keep an eye on....
Her picture looks prettier than mine, but mine still tastes scrumdiddlyumptious!
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
    Mix together all ingredients.
    Cover a 10×15 inch cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper, wider and longer than the cookie sheet.
    Pour batter onto parchment paper and spread evenly, making sure to get into the corners of the cookie sheet.
    Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes (less if the edges start to get really dark – it should look like cake and feel spongy to the touch).
    Next, turn onto a towel that has been generously covered with powdered sugar.  Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and remove the parchment paper.
    Roll the cake up, jelly roll style, in the towel starting with the short end.  Allow to cool for ten minutes.  (This helps the cake to keep the roll form.  If you did this when it was cooled the cake would crack and not keep the nice form)
    While cake cools mix filling ingredients.

    8 oz of cream cheese, softened (reduced fat works fine)
    2 Tbsp. vanilla
    1 cup powdered sugar
    2 Tbsp butter, softened

    Mix filling ingredients with a mixer until smooth.
    Unroll cake from towel and spread with filling
    Re-roll with out the towel, wrap in foil and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours.
    Cut into slices and serve.

    *I also added some chopped pecans to one (long) end before I rolled it...for my enjoyment!
