Let’s Review the October Baking Challenge

October 2017 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Pumpkin Roll

You weren’t shy about trying this fall classic! I loved seeing all of your gorgeous pumpkin rolls this month. There were plain rolls, decorated rolls, multiple rolls, and rolls on rolls on rolls! Some with whipped cream filling, cream cheese filling, and brown butter cream cheese filling. (YUM!) I’m so happy to see that many of you baked October’s challenge recipe, despite being nervous to try it. You’re incredible and YOU inspire me!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Sally:

“I made your pumpkin roll yesterday to take to a dinner with friends. And they so enjoyed it. It was so easy to make because of your wonderful instructions. The taste was phenomenal.”

We gathered as many pumpkin roll photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to guarantee your photo will be included!)
