      Made for Photo Tag 2008. This is the first time I have ever used a fresh vanilla bean and it was gorgeous! You can see all the tiny vanilla seeds in the cheesecake. :~) The only suggestion I can make is next time I would bake the crust for 5-6 minutes and then let it cool till the batter is ready to pour into it.My crust was a bit soggy but it did'nt detract from the yummy cheesecake flavour.
