I make a pumpkin roll every year and my family loves it. Saw this recipe and made it tonight for something different. I was great, however, I had the same problem with the filling, to much and falling out. Next time I will cut back on one package of cream cheese.
This roll tastes wonderful! I followed the recipe to the T. As I was making the peach spread i was thinking "Wow, this is alot of filling"....which then proceeded to oooze out the sides as I was rolling it up. HMMM...did anyone else have any trouble?
I will for sure make it again but maybe cut back on the filling. Thank you for the nice new recipe!
My whole family enjoyed this for Christmas. i did leave out the peaches cuz i wasnt sure how they would go for that, but they loved it and we decided we liked it better after it had chilled in the fridge for awhile.
Very tasty; everyone enjoyed the combination of flavors and my husband has asked for this again.
I'm about to make this for Christmas along with a bunch of other goodies. Does it need to be refrigerated due to the cream cheese?
