Vanilla Bean Cheesecake with Walnut Crust
Say Cheesecake This is no ordinary cheesecake. Cookbook author Peggy Cullen bakes her ethereal version without the customary water bath, creating a firm yet silky custard, which she then tops with a layer of tangy sour cream. Her walnut crust is a wonderful counterpoint, but this cheesecake could even stand alone.
