   Let cream cheese sit out until it’s room temperature,
   nice and soft. Beat the cream cheese and sugar
   together until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time (break
   them into a separate cup - one teensy bit of shell
   will ruin everything!) and beat just until mixed.  Add
   remaining ingredients and beat just until mixed. Pour
   into chilled shell and bake at 325 for 50 minutes to
   an hour.
   
   Jam may be melted and poured evenly over the top of
   the cooled cake.
   
   Fruits may be arranged on top of a cooled cake, then
   covered with a melted jam glaze.
   
   4 oz chocolate or white chocolate chips, melted with
   2-3 Tbsp butter and maybe 1 -2 Tbsp whipping cream (if
   desired) can be poured on top of the cooled cake.
   
   For a yogurt or sour cream topping, cook the cake only
   50 minutes, cool the cake 15 minutes, mix together 1
   cup yogurt or sour cream with 1/4 cup sugar (regular
   is OK since this is so liquid) and 1 Tbsp vanilla or
   other flavoring (lemon juice, extract, etc.) raise the
   oven temperature to 475 and bake another 10 minutes.
