  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Crust: In medium-size bowl, stir graham cracker crumbs, butter, granulated sugar and salt until crumbs are evenly moistened. Press into an 11 x 7-inch rectangular (or a 10-inch round) removable-bottom tart pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly on a wire rack.
  2. Filling and Topping: In a medium-size bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Pour into slightly cooled crust. Pour cranberry sauce into a small bowl and stir to loosen. Dollop into cream cheese mixture, then spread slightly with the back of a spoon.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, until set. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely. Transfer to refrigerator to chill.
