These all have gotten great reviews, and use vanilla beans. (Haven't tried any of them yet, except for the Chocolate Orbit Cake, and it's great). Will PM any one of these recipes to you if you're interested.

Vanilla Bean Cheesecake (Bon Appetit), Chocolate Orbit Cake with Creme Anglaise (David Lebovitz), Peach Cake with Apricot and Vanilla Glaze (Fine Cooking), Zingerman's Funky Dark Chocolate Cookies, Mixed Berries with Vanilla Bean Syrup (Fine Cooking).

Cheesecake is the first thing that i thought of, its so good to use real vanilla beans in cheesecake

Use it in cream, in victoria sponges, brownies, ice creams, smoothies. if you have loads, use a few to flavour regular sugar

Here ya go - I just checked and found two vanilla bean cheesecakes saved in my files. The first is from Bon Appetit, as mentioned above, and the second is from an unknown source - both had great reviews. (I also sent you a PM).

I make my own vanilla extract by putting them in vodka and waiting 9-12 months. It also makes a nice gift to someone that likes to bake.
