Green Tea Chestnut Roll

Still have chestnut cream left from the last chocolate roll a few days ago.  OK, give it a twist to make a green tea roll.  Auh ooh, no milk.  No problem, use cream as a substutite.  Another auh ooh, always double the need.  OK, pour less olive oil to assure the liquid content will not be over.  This experiement turned out good.  Soft and moist roll.  Hmm, I can finish it alone.   No worry, there was still more than 2/3 of the roll left at this writing time.  A few hours after the make.
