  Categories: Desserts, Cheesecakes, Party, Family
       Yield: 12 servings
  
 -----------------------------------CRUST-----------------------------------
      16 ea Graham crackers*
       4 tb Butter
 
 ----------------------------------FILLING----------------------------------
       1 lb Cream cheese
       1 pt Sour cream
       1 c  Sugar
       2 tb Flour
       1 ts Vanilla
       2 tb Lemon juice; fresh is best
       5 ea Eggs
       1 pn Salt
  
   *Could use Cinnamon Crisp Cookies instead.
   Blend the sour cream and cream cheese well and add the
   egg yolks (which have been beaten first) and the other
   ingredients. Whip egg whites until stiff and fold
   cheese and yolk mixture in CAREFULLY. Make sure it is
   all incorperated. Pour into a springform pan and bake
   at 350 degrees for one hour. Then leave door closed
   for one hour; and then oven door ajar for last5 hour
   (3 in all). Cake is creamy and smooth and may crack a
   bit on top. Good reason to make a strawberry topping.
   This cake was given to Jeannie Toll by one of Mort’s
   old girlfriends about 37 years ago. She gave it to me
   when Mort and I told her about our engaement...hence
   the title. Betty Mondress gave me her 'recipe' card as
   mine dissappeared years ago. I used my copy of the
   LEVITTOWN SISTERHOOD COOKBOOK; (Pa..circa 1957) until
   it disintegrated. Of course i submitted it as my
   own...<G>. Ellen, did you know that? Mom was 'bad'in
   her younger days!!!
