 cheese, sugar, flour, lemon zest, orange zest and vanilla until blended.
 Beat in eggs and egg yolks one at a time; beat until smooth, scraping
 bowl with spatula occasionally. Beat in cream.
 
 Pour filling into prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes.  Lower oven temperature
 to 250F. Bake 1 hour longer or until center is set but not firm. Remove

 top of cake to within 1/2 inch of edge.  Refrigerate 3 hours or

 Pour raspberry sauce into small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
 In clean food processor, puree peach slices with 1/4 cup sugar until
 blended; pour into small bowl; set aside. Remove cake from pan; place on
 serving dish. Spoon raspberry sauce over sour cream, covering half of

 Arrange kiwifruit and peach slices along the line where the raspberry
 sauce meets the peach puree. Add whole raspberries as desired. Cut cake
 into wedges to serve. Pass remaining raspberry sauce and peach puree.
 
 Variation: Add variety to recipes that call for graham cracker crusts by
 mixing in the flavor of your favorite cookie. In any graham cracker
 crust regipe, use halt graham cracker crumbs and half chocolate, vanilla
 or shortbread cookie crumbs for an interesting version of an old
 favorite.
