                         -----FILLING-----
    1       lb           Cream cheese
    1       pt           Sour cream
    1       c            Sugar
    2       tb           Flour
    1       t            Vanilla
    2       tb           Lemon juice -- fresh is best
    5                    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!!!
