Pumpkin roll

This afternoon, a dear friend of mine volunteered to watch my rowdy active boys so I could get a few things done around the house in preparation for our upcoming Christmas celebration.  Wasn't that just SO KIND of her?!

Here is the fruit of my labor... a beautiful pumpkin roll!

It's a gluten-free pumpkin spice cake with a sweet cream cheese filling and topped with chopped pecans .... soooo delicious!  There is no way I could have made that while the boys were at home... it took me about 1-1/2 hours and a fair amount of concentration.  (Yes, I am somewhat a novice at this sort of thing... but I am good at following directions, as long as I'm not distracted!)

Hooray!  Now I feel like a true Christmas hostess! :)  Thank you, Kim!!!
