Pumpkin Roll

I absolutely adore fall. I love the smells, the food, the feel and the holidays. Pumpkin flavor encompasses all those things and tastes like creamy nostalgia. When I made this recipe, Jack was not really that excited for them. When he tasted them however, his eyes popped and he just said, "Wow."

On the 20th of next month will be five years since I married Jack. We had pumpkin rolls at our reception and they always remind me of that special time. Hopefully trying this recipe may trigger some happy food related memories for you and your family.

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup Pumpkin
