I don't know anyone who doesn't love Pumpkin Roll. It's a staple in my house, at Thanksgiving, and Christmas. There's a common problem that people often have with Pumpkin Roll...when you roll it up, it cracks. Well, this recipe solves that problem. Wrapping it in a cold damp towel and placing it in the freezer for 5 minutes solves this problem. I also made my own change...the 1/2 tsp of Ground Cloves is my addition. I love the smell, and the taste that cloves give to food.

So anyways...feel free to try this recipe out!

Well, part of it is. The part where you wrap it in a damp towel, covered in powdered sugar, and place it in the fridge is my Mom's addition. At least I think it's her's...she may have heard it from someone else though. Anyways...most of the recipe she got from a cookbook.
