This vanilla cheesecake can be thrown together in a snap. You can even change the flavor by using different flavored gelatin but most people prefer this plain vanilla which can be topped with the fruit of their choice. This make-ahead recipe is fast and delicious. Try it with a dollop of sugar-free jam or fruit slices on top. It's lip smacking good!
