Instructions
The Cake
  1. Note: 2/3 Cups of Pumpkin is half of a 15 oz can of canned Pumpkin. So instead of wasting a partial can, plan on making a double batch (2 Rolls). The recipe above is for a single batch (1 Roll).
  2. Heat Oven to 350°F. Prepare a greased 10x15 jelly roll pan (cookie sheet). Line the bottom with wax paper, then lightly spray the wax paper with a spray oil such as Pam.
  3. Lay out on your counter, a thin towel, sized at least the size of your jelly roll pan. Sprinkle it liberally with powdered sugar.
  4. In a large bowl lightly beat the eggs. Gradually beat in the sugar, beat until thick and light yellow. (4 to 5 minutes of beating). Add the pumpkin and lemon juice and beat on low until blended.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine/sift the flour, baking powder, spices, and salt. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the egg mixture. Whisk until well combined. Spread the batter onto the prepare Jelly pan.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes. The cake should spring back when lightly touched with your finger. Start checking at 12 minutes, and at 1 minute intervals after that. Remove the cake from the oven and run a knife along side all edges to help release it from the pan. Immediately flip the cake/pan onto the powdered sugar covered towel. Gently lift the upside down pan away and the cake should remain behind on the towel. Gently peel away the wax paper and discard it.
  7. Starting on the narrow end of the cake, roll the cake and the towel up together to form a log. Place this on a wire rack to cool.
Filling
  1. While the cake is cooling prepare the filling. In a small bowl sift the powdered sugar and set it aside. Using a mixer, Beat together the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy (about 4 minutes). Gradually beat in the sifted powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
The Filling & The Rolling
  1. Once the cake roll is cool (needs to be cool to avoid melting the filling), carefully unroll the cake. Spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the entire surface of the cake. Then roll the cake and filling (not the towel this time) into a log, or roll. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving. These can be made ahead and frozen.
  2. Slice the cake and filling roll into 1 inch slices. Keep leftovers in the refrigerator.

Instructions
  1. Set Bread machine to “Quick” and “Dough” (Traditional dough making methods can be used)
  2. Dry mix the Flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, and 1 1/2 tsp salt. Pour into bread machine. Pour to create a volcano type peak of flour. Spoon the yeast into a little depression in the peak of flour. Gently pour the warm water around the base of the flour. Start bread machine and let it cycle through the mix and rise cycles (Normally 45 minutes)
  3. In a separate bowl mix the Apple Pie Filling, 3 Tbsp Sugar, Cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp salt. Set aside.
  4. When the bread machine dough mix and rise cycles are complete remove the dough. Let dough rest on a lightly floured surface.
  5. In a large pot bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar.
  6. Cut dough into 9-12 equal pieces, and roll each piece into a small ball. Flatten balls. Poke a hole in the middle of each with your thumb or finger. Twirl the dough on your finger, thumb, or knife handle, to enlarge the hole to the size you like. Do not over do it though.
  7. Cover the shaped bagels with a clean cloth, and let rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Cover cookie sheet (or Dutch Oven) with wax paper and lightly spray oil. Sprinkle covered cookie sheet (or Dutch Oven) with cornmeal. Set oven or coals for Dutch Oven for a baking temperature of 375°
  9. Transfer the raw dough bagels to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute, turning half way through. Drain briefly on clean towel. Arrange the boiled bagels on the prepared cookie sheet or the Dutch Oven. Brush tops with egg white. Spoon a generous glob of Apple Pie filling into the center hole of each bagel.
  10. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven or Dutch Oven, for 20 to 25 minutes, until well browned.
  11. Best served warm with butter melted. Pulled wax paper and bagels off the cookie sheet and onto a wire rack to cool. Remove from baking wax paper when cooled with a spatula (don't loose the apple filling) and place on clean waxed paper. Seal in zip lock or small loaf bags once completely cooled. To serve, warm first (microwave about 25 seconds) and serve with melted butter on top.
Recipe Notes

This is a basic Bagel Dough recipe. You can experiment with whole wheat flour, Agave in place of sugar, and a variety of toppings and ingredients such as cheese, seeds, raisins, cranberries, etc.
