sugar, egg whites, milk, lemon juice and vanilla in another mixing bowl.  Pour
over baked crust.  Bake for 22 to 28 minutes or until firm.  Meanwhile, to
prepare glaze, combine 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk.  Add enough
lemon juice to make a thick smooth glaze.  Pour glaze over cheesecake base;
smooth surface.  Cover and refrigerate overnight before cutting.
