Next, add the flour, salt, and sift the ingredients until everything moves through the mesh strainer. 

Now add dry ingredients into the mixer with the wet ingredients. Add a little bit at a time to avoid lumps. 

Spray a cookie sheet with oil, or add oil to the cookie sheet. This step is very important to the rolling of the holiday log / pumpkin roulade. Place a piece of parchment paper on top then oil or spray as well. Make sure to cover very well as this is your insurance policy for removing the cooked pumpkin roulade from the cookie sheet.

Pour the batter on top of the parchment paper and smooth it out to the edges. Lastly, tap the cookie sheet on the counter a few time to release extra air bubbles.

Bake in the preheated oven @ 375 degrees for around 12 minutes, or until you can touch the pumpkin roulade and no indention appear.

I like to remove the cooked pumpkin roulade way from the cookie sheet asap once out of the oven. Find a place on the counter and lay it down, do not remove the parchment paper yet.

While the pumpkin roulade is baking layout a kitchen towel. Place a piece of parchment paper in the middle and crimp the edges so the paper lays flat.

Set to the side and make the cream cheese crystallized ginger filling ( Check Recipe Card Below)

Once the filling is complete unroll the pumpkin roulade and add the crystallized ginger filling. Fill almost all the way to the edges.

For clean presentation, cut off the edge pieces with a knife. I like using a serrated knife.

KEY to a nice swirl:  – When you begin the rolling you make sure to keep it tight with the towel.
