Peachy Gingerbread Cake Roll Recipe

My father loved gingerbread so I combined two or three recipes to create this one for him. This fruity, spiced cake roll gets kudos every time I serve it. —Dawn DePew, Blacklick, Ohio

"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!"

"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?"
