Libby's Pumpkin Roll (with cute Santa)

Pumpkin Roll
Libby's Pumpkin Roll with my favorite Santa

I think everyone will have this same post between now and the new year. Libby's pumpkin roll is as ubiquitous this season as 75% off sales signs. I'm not knocking the pumpkin roll (or the sales) - I love it, but I think everyone has made it. And if you haven't, you should!! It is super easy and way, way delicious. Pumpkin and cream cheese. A match made in heaven.

And since everyone and their mother (literally) makes this, I'll talk about my cute Santa. He has such a cute face, doesn't he? I found him at Target a few years back during the after Christmas sale. He had me at Hello (and 50% off!). I bring him into work every year and he sits on our "buffet" (the shelf in the office where I put out my sweets). Currently, he is filled with chocolate mini-candy bars. Okay, I'll share with you a little secret. When the new year rolls around and we take down our decorations at work, Santa and I go home....and I keep him on the mantel all year!!

Two good things this holiday season (or all year long).

That looks amazing! I'm still too intimidated to try a roll recipe.

Can I tell you a secret? I've never made a pumpkin roll. (b/c I am scared.) I can just see the cake rolling being a disaster. How is it possible to roll the cake without it breaking?? It defies science! HAHA

I've never made this! But I have another huge can of Libby's left so maybe I will put it on the list. I think it's ok that you leave Santa out all year :)

I have not made the pumpkin roll yet, but I've wanted to for a while. You've inspired me with that cute picture of the pumpkin roll next to Santa!

I love after holiday sales at Target:). I have a big ole ceramic turkey that comes out for Thanksgiving and I place it in the most prominent place in the house. I love it! And it was such a good deal!!

I've never made a pumpkin roll, but I've always wanted to. I wonder if I can add this to my list this month!!

Confession! I've never made a pumpkin roll! I want to, but I'm mildly intimidated by the rolling part. Maybe I will give it at try. LOVE the Santa. I love going to Target after Christmas for the clearance sales! Always such great stuff. And I have snowmen up all year round! :o)

I am going to get a job as a librarian at your library just so I can eat all these treats you are making! I have never made a pumpkin roll..I am scared it will fall apart..I will have to overcome my pumpkin fears :).

I've never made a pumpkin roll either! It looks delicious though. I just need to find the courage to give it a shot. Your Santa is adorable :)

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Your roll looks delicious!

I always use the Libby's recipe for my pumpkin rolls. I haven't made one this year though! I doubt I will get to it with so many othe "requests" that have come my way!

P.S. When I saw your Santa at first I thought you had the same as I have...but its not. Mine is in tomorrow's TWD post, make sure you check it out!

Love your cute Santa! I have a small collection of Santa cookie jars. When I discover one who fits into the family, I often times adopt him for the collection. hehe Anyway, thanks for your wishes and the same Merry Christmas to you too.
I confess I haven't made a roll either...must add to the must try list. Maybe CB and I can come to your house and we can all roll around. he he

*raises hand* I haven't made this! In fact, I had heard of a roll but the pumpkin is new to me.

Now that I think about it, I haven't made a roll dessert at all. Is it too late for pumpkin now?
