Vanilla Cheesecake with Cherry Topping

In this rich cheesecake, we use the entire vanilla bean, so none of it is wasted: The seeds flavor the cheesecake, and the bean halves flavor the topping.

User sarate gave this recipe the ultimate praise: "I've never made a better cheesecake, low fat or otherwise. The texture was creamy perfection - silky, substantial, and, as my guests put it, DECADENT."
