Christmas dessert recipe — pumpkin bread?
I love pumpkin bread nothing says holidays like the smell of it in the house. You may think I am sharing my pumpkin bread recipe with you today, but you’re wrong.
The only thing that can make pumpkin bread better is cream cheese — a central ingredient in pumpkin bread’s cousin, the pumpkin roll. So, I thought today I would share my Momma’s pumpkin roll recipe.
This is to die for. I hope you all enjoy.
