I made this for Father's Day and it was enjoyed by all.

Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

Graham Cracker Crust:
1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup of ground pecans
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
6 tablespoons of melted butter

Cheesecake filling:
1 1/2 pounds of cream cheese (softened)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 vanilla beans

4 eggs
2 tablespoons of heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In a bowl, mix together the crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, ground pecans if you have them. Add the butter and mix well. Press evenly into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake about 8 mins or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until creamy and smooth. Add the sugar a few tablespoons at a time, and then the flour, vanilla extract. Add the eggs and heavy cream, beating on low speed until it is all combined. Split open your vanilla beans and scrape out the seeds and guts inside the bean. Add this to your batter. (save your split beans to garnish the top of the cheesecake)

Pour the batter into the pan and bake in the middle of the oven until set, the center should be slightly soft. It should bake for 55-70 minutes. Remove from the oven, loosen the outer ring and let cool in the pan. Refrigerate the cake, for about 6 hours, then remove the outer ring. Top with the vanilla beans and a sprig of something green like peppermint leaf.Be prepared to get kisses!

Sounds wonderful but with the current price of vanilla beans it's probably spendy but I'll bet it's great.

RE: RECIPE: Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

I paid $3.15 for the vanilla bean, therefore only used one instead of two. It tasted wonderful though.
