                         Thawed
 
   In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, lemon peel and
   vanilla. Make well in center; add egg yolk and butter.
   Mix with fingertips until dough cleans side of bowl.
   Form into a ball and wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate
   for one hour.
   
   Preheat oven to 400F. Grease the bottom and side of a
   9 springform pan. Remove the side from the pan. Roll
   one third of dough on bottom of springform pan; trim
   edge of dough. Bake 8 - 10 mins, or until golden.
   
   Meanwhile, divide dough into 3 parts. Roll each part
   into a 2 1/2 strip, 10 long. Put together springform
   pan, with the baked crust on the bottom. Fit dough
   strips to side of pan, joining ends to line inside
   completely. Trim dough so it comes only 3/4 of the way
   up side of pan. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
   
   Preheat oven to 500F. Make Filling: In a large bowl of
   electric mixer, combine cheese, sugar, flour, lemon
   and orange peel, and vanilla. Beat at high speed, just
   to blend. Beat in eggs and egg yolks, one at a time.
   Add cream, beating just until well combined. Pour
   mixture into springform pan. Bake 10 mins. Reduce
   temperature to 250F and bake 1 hour longer.
   
   Let cheesecake cool in wire rack. Glaze top with
   strawberries. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. To
   serve, loosen pastry from side of pan with spatula.
   Remove side of springform pan. Cut cheesecake into
   wedges.
   
   And, boy, is it good,
