Creamy Pumpkin Cheesecake with Ginger-Pecan Crust

This month's Cake Slice Baker's recipe would be a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin, but even I have to admit that the mixture tasted pretty good. And I have been eating the Sugared Pumpkin Seeds that you garnish the cheesecake with by the handful!

The sides of my cheesecake didn't come out as smooth looking as I would have liked, so I opted to press the pumpkin seeds all the way around to disguise that a little bit.

The recipe is lengthy, but not difficult. Since it has so many steps, I am posting a link to the recipe in printable format.

WOW! You did great! And pressing pumpkin seeds around your cake was a great (and tasty) idea!!! I am not a big fan of pumpkin either and I also thought it was good!! Welcome to TCS ... This is just my 2nd. cake so I am new too... but I am enjoying SO MUCH being part of the group!

I really like that little added touch of coating the sides in the sugared pumpkin seeds. It makes it look rustic and pretty :)

OMG. This seriously sounds amazing! On a scale of 1-10, how difficult was it to make?

Hi, Great bake! The cheesecake is really good! Yes, I totally agree with you on the Pumpkin seeds, they are really addictive! I have just purchased a pack of hulled pumpkin seeds to make these again for snacking! Would make a great Christmas gift!

I tried commenting here earlier but blogger eat it up!

Love love that idea of yours of coating the sides with more sugared pumpkin seeds! what a clever move!

I had the similar results with the side but I cut it up almost immediately to quickly packed and sent out before my waistline got further damaged!

and if blogger ate up my ID again, this is Emily!

I plan to make mine for Thanksgiving :) Hopefully I can find pumpkin seeds, some of the bakers couldn't find any.
