Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

Disclosure: This weeks Progressive Dinner post is sponsored by Corelle.

Welcome to week one of our Progressive Dinners Blog Hop. The other day I sent out an invitation. If you didn’t get a chance to see it you can check it out in my Invitation post where you can see the beautiful full-color magazine our hostess Glenda from Busy at Home created to announce the big event.

So what is a Progressive Dinner you might be asking? Well for 7 weeks myself and four other bloggers will each be sharing a course for a holiday dinner in a round up style post. Each week each blogger will be sharing one course so there will be an entire holiday meal worth of recipes shared weekly.

By the end of the seven weeks each of us will have shared a Main course, 2 side dish recipes, an appetizer, a  dessert recipe and a pot luck or gift from the kitchen recipe. 

Below you will find the schedule of the recipes I will be sharing for each week and what giveaway will be available.

Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts. There is something about a thick dense piece of New York style cheesecake that makes me dance with delight.  A few months ago I made a Key Lime Cheesecake. It was delicious but while I was making it I thought to myself I have got to make this cheesecake recipe with vanilla beans as the flavoring. It’s funny how recipe inspiration can hit you while you are making one recipe and you end up with two great recipes to add to your collection.

This cheesecake is so rich you don’t need any topping but I decided to top a slice with some homemade Fig Preserves I made over the summer. Yummy!

    Wow! I’ve always know that Corelle is durable; but the Cherish pattern is really attractive, as well. From the pattern names mentioned in posts above, it seems like new Corelle patterns would be worth checking out – especially with two semi-destructive teenage boys in the house.

    I like the Pure White square ones. I love Corelle dishes. I have two Corelle bowls, and they’re so light and easy to wash, also been dropped and didn’t break!
