This is by far one of the best recipes around! My son entered it into the county fair last year and he was a GRAND CHAMPION bake-off winner! It netted him over $1500.00 too!!!
Some tips I've learned over the years: Double the recipe (everyone requests a pumpkin roll from me for Christmas, so I double many times over). When doubling, add the entire can of pumpkin...makes an extremely moist roll that way.
Line the pan with parchment paper...much less mess!
Chop the nuts (I prefer pecans) to cookie bit size (or buy them that way) and add them to the cream cheese filling. The cake tends to hold together better with less cracking and the nuts give the filling a wonderful texture.
I triple the filling mix for the 2 rolls (1/2 as much filling per roll), so there is a thick cream cheese layer throughout. That's what everyone raves about.
Lastly, I wrap in plastic while they are still warm and place them in the freezer immediately....locks in the moisture.
