DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Soften cream cheese, and then combine all ingredients, ending with the eggs. Pour into a springform pan (9-12 inch. depending on the height you'd like) and bake 60 minutes at 300 degrees. Remove cake and pour on topping. Return to oven until this is lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Best when refrigerated overnight.
