He wants a Pumpkin Roll

smtucker | Nov 22, 201306:41 PM

So, the kid has a boy. For the past three years, they have come to our T-Day dinner at 1pm and then quickly scoot to his family dinner at 5, 40 minutes north. This year, his family was told that my kid and the boy would just come for dessert. His family "gets" Easter so the kids thought this was a good compromise. Evidently not!

Instead, his family has changed their dinner to 1pm for the first time in the boy's 30 year memory! Net result is, the kids will only have dinner with us.

Trying to be supportive, I asked him tonight if there were any holiday dishes that his family serves that we don't. I expected some g-dawful casserole with canned onions, or something. Nope. His fondest T-Day memory is a Pumpkin Roll. Googling quickly found a Libby's Pumpkin version and then some riffs on websites I don't trust at all.

Though I see no reason to add yet another dessert to our three traditional pies, pumpkin roll it is! So, does anyone have a good pumpkin roll recipe that they can share?
