This was AMAZING!! I followed the recipe exactly (my first attempt at a cheesecake) and it turned out so yummy. My only suggestion is it needs to be a bit sweeter. Any suggestions???
This was divine. I skipped doing the mousse layer and just opted for the base, cake and chocolate/cheese layer and honestly, any more deliciousness and I might have exploded. This was a nice, easy recipe to follow and lovely results. Thanks for sharing.
OMG! I LOVE TGIF's Vanilla Bean Cheesecake and this taste just like it! I followed the recipe (with the exception.... I used fat free sour cream and I didn't have the beans so I used a tsp of vanilla extract in place of) and it came out perfect! Awesome job coming up with this recipe Benny'sGirl!!!
We are in LOVE with this cheesecake at TGIF and when I made it it was even better. Not a cheap cake to make but well worth the cost and time!!!
This is an amazing recipe. Since I have to eat gluten-free, I can't eat Friday's Vanilla Bean Cheesecake anymore. I make this with GF cookies, graham crackers, or almond flour instead of regular graham crackers. It's AMAZING. My only issue was with the 1/2 cup (one whole stick) of butter for the crust. I don't know if it's because almond flour and/or GF cookies naturally have more oil in them, but the crust had waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much butter. I had to cook it for 3x as long as the recipe says to get the extra moisture out each time I made this.
Wow, I ate TGIFridays version last night and made this version today for my hubby for a Father's day treat and to my amazement, It was soooo close to there's but better so... Thanks Bennygirl for submitting this recipe.
I love the Vanilla Bean Cheesecake at Friday's. Had to try this recipe and it was awesome & very close. Time consuming yes, but well worth the time!
This is the most AWESOME cheesecake ever. I was skeptical when it only had to bake for 35 min, but it worked! When it cooled it set. It was jiggly when I took it out of the oven. I omitted the whipped cream on top of the mousse and it was good anyway. YUMMY!
Wow! After having this in my cookbook for over a year, I finally made this cheesecake. Oh My Gosh! The most amazing thing in the wolrd! Out of this world! It was a lot of work, but I really enjoyed doing it. It was great! Awesome awesome awesome!
This recipe is horrible....way too much butter, and cheesecake never set.
