  • For crust:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Have 9 inch springform pan ready.
  • Mix flour, salt & sugar together.
  • Cut chilled butter into flour mix until flour & butter have texture of cornmeal.
  • Beat egg yolk with vanilla & add to flour/butter mix - mix well. Dough will be crumbly - that's ok.
  • Pat dough onto floor & a bit up the side of the springform pan - go for even distribution.
  • Bake 14-16 minutes - until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven & cool to room temperature Brush with egg white. Set aside.
  • For custard:
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
  • Place cream cheese in large mixing bowl. Add2/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon salt & can of Coco Lopez.
  • Start mixing at medium speed until cheese & Coco Lopez are well-blended, no more tha a minute.
  • Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing 10 - 20 seconds between additions. Goal is uniform texture & color without overbeating.
  • Pour custard into springform pan whose bottom is lined with the baked crust.
  • Raise the filled pan 3 to 4 inches above the counter & smack sharply onto counter to release air bubbles, Repeat a couple of times (more if things are loud or stressfull).
  • Put custard in oven. Bake at 475 for 15 minutes then turn down to 225 degrees F for 70 -75 minutes. Center will still have a quiver.
  • Turn oven off. Keep cake in oven & prop oven door open with a wooden spoon. This allows cake to cool slowly for next 2 hours Remove cake, cover with plastic wrap & refrigerate overnight.
