[Editor's Note: I certainly love pumpkin pie, but sometimes, Thanksgiving calls for a twist on the traditional. This pumpkin pecan roulade is just that dessert: fancy and light, but still bearing elements of pumpkin and pecan pies. It's an interesting and unusual alternative to wrap up your holiday meal. --Genie]
Pumpkin Pecan Roulade
What is the difference between a cake roll and roulade, you may ask. Well, nothing. Both terms describe a light cake which is rolled in a spiral with a creamy filling. Yet the blandly descriptive cake roll is what I might consider as an afternoon snack. For my Thanksgiving dinner, I am inviting the roulade, a French term which elegantly and aptly sums up the nature of the dessert as the word itself rolls off the tongue.
