 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    eggs
    2      teaspoons     cinnamon
    1      cup           sugar
    1      teaspoon      ginger -- optional
      2/3  cup           pumpkin
      1/2  teaspoon      nutmeg
    1      teaspoon      lemon juice
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      3/4  cup           flour
    1      cup           pecans -- chopped
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
                         --Filling--
    1      cup           powder sugar
    8      ounces        cream cheese
    4      tablespoons   oleo
      1/2  teaspoon      vanilla
 
 Beat eggs on high for 5 minutes; add sugar at last minute.  Stir in pumpkin and
  lemon juice.  Mix dry ingredients and fold in.  Pour into greased cookie sheet
  (with 1 sides).  (It doesn't look like there’s enough batter, but just spread
  it out all over the cookie sheet and it makes a nice size cake).  Sprinkle wit
 h pecans.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool.
 
 Turn out on powder sugar towel.  Sprinkle powder sugar on top of roll also.  Ro
 ll up in towel.  Cool.  Unroll and spread filling.  Re-roll and refrigerate or 
 freeze.  (Wrap in foil)
 
 NOTE FROM MOM: I don't know if you've ever made a roll cake in a towel like thi
 s.  I hadn't.  Sprinkle the powdered sugar on pretty good and then take your ha
 nd and smooth it out so it covers all the area of the towel where the cake will
  be.  I didn't let it cool very long in the pan.  Also, don't beat the filling 
 very much.  Just mix it good.  I beat it too much and it was a little runnier t
 han it should have been.  The cake will roll better if the filling is a little 
 thicker.  Use your towel roll the cake after the filling is in it (just as a gu
 ide) and then carefully lift the cake off the towel and onto some foil.  After 
 it cools in the frige, just slice it.  It is awesome.  (I used fat free cream c
 heese).
