Pumpkin Roll Dessert

This is an old recipe of my wife's. She taught me to make it after we were married. If a guy can make it, then it must be easy!

For Roll:
3 eggs
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt

For Filling:
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix together eggs, pumpkin, lemon juice, and sugar. Add flour baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Mix well and spread on greased jellyroll pan. Bake 13-15 minutes at 375 degrees. When done, loosen and flip onto wax paper. Roll in wax paper and cool.

For filling, mix cream cheese and butter, add powdered sugar and vanilla. Open chilled pumkin roll, spread filling on inside and reroll. Refrigerate and serve chilled.

I'll post a pic of this when we make it next, probably this weekend. Let me know what you think.
