Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg yolk
1/4 pound softened butter
5 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese
1-3/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1-1/2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
5 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup heavy cream
In large bowl combine flour, sugar, lemon rind and vanilla.
Make a well in the center of mixture, add egg yolk and butter and form into a dough (adding a little water if necessary to make it pliable). Wrap in waxed paper and chill for 1 hour.
In another bowl combine the cream cheese, sugar, flour and orange and lemon rind with an electric mixer. Add eggs, egg yolks, vanilla and beat well. Add heavy cream and blend thoroughly.
Butter the sides and bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Roll out 1/3 of dough to 1/8 inch thickness and mold to the pan's bottom. Bake in preheated 400ºF oven for 15 minutes until lightly browned, then remove and cool.
Cut remaining dough to line the sides of the pan thoroughly. Add cream cheese mixture, bake at 550°F for 10 minutes, then bake at 200°F for 1 hour. Allow to cool.
