Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas celebration. I am still recovering, giggle. I have packed away all of the holiday decor and I am ready for the new year and all it has to bring. I look forward to seeing what you link up at the hop this week. If you are like us you probably have walnuts and almonds left over from your holiday baking and this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake is a delicious way to use them up. A nice treat for your new years eve dinner tomorrow too. Because many of you will be swearing off sweets as a new years resolution. This is one last treat that I think you will enjoy.
