Cranberry Vanilla Cheesecake

Vanilla twist here to add some extra flavor that balances out the tartness of cranberries.

Cranberry Vanilla Cheesecake. Simple recipe to follow.

Vanilla in this case just means plain, with added cranberry topping. But I like to really spice it up by adding vanilla extract to the crust and a little bit of vanilla bean flecks into the cheesecake filling. Just bake and enjoy …
