BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. (If using a dark-colored pan, begin checking for doneness at 11 minutes.) Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.

Be sure to put enough powdered sugar on the towel when rolling up the cake so it will not stick.

This isn't as hard to make as you might think, I've been making Libby's Pumpkin Rolls for 2 years now and they don't last long. They absolutely warm the soul, especially with a fresh cup of coffee!

Delicious - just be sure too use plenty of powdered sugar on the towel to prevent sticking.

Great Dessert!

I love this recipe but this year I made two and both cracked when I unrolled it to frost. It still tasted great anyway. The only thing I can make of this is that my flour was old. It does have an expiration date! And mine was old!

The second time I made it, I doubled the cream cheese filling and used most of it. Delicious!
