   ~----------------- NOTE:  Prebaked crusts are much crisper than the
   chilled ones and this can be important if you want a crisp crust.
   CRUST: If you are prebaking the shell, preheat the oven to 350
   degrees F. Place the crumbs in a mixing bowl and add the butter and
   sugar blending well. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up
   the sides of an 8-inch springform pan. Smooth the mixture to form an
   even layer on the bottom and sides. Bake the crust in the oven for 10
   minutes and let cool to room temperature before filling. NOTE: This
   crust can be chilled for 5 to 10 minutes in the freezer until it is
   set but is not recommended in this recipe. CHEESECAKE: Preheat the
   oven to 300 degrees F.  In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese
   and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time,
   beating well after each.  Beat in the flour, lemon rind, lemon juice,
   and vanilla until just mixed.  Whip the cream until stiff in a medium
   mixing bowl. Set aside. In another mixing bowl, beat the egg whites
   until they form stiff peaks, then fold them into the cheese mixture.
   Fold in the reserved whipped cream. Stir in the passion fruit pulp
   then pour the mixture into the prepared crust and bake fro 45 minutes
   to 1 hour.
    Cool, in the oven, to room temperature, then chill.
