In a food processor chop the ginger snap cookies till they are more of a crumble consistency. Sprinkle toasted chopped walnuts and chopped cookies evenly on pumpkin roll sheet.

Going length wise roll the pumpkin sheet till completely in the form of a log. Dust with cinnamon and decorate as you would like.
