New York-Style Cheesecake

Cooking spray
2 cups (8 oz.) vanilla wafer crumbs (about 56 to 60 wafers)
2 eggs, separated + 5 eggs
5 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1-3/4 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup whipping cream
Fresh raspberries and kiwi slices, optional
Mint leaves, optional

Evenly coat 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Set aside. In medium bowl, stir together crumbs and the 2 separated egg whites until thoroughly blended. Press crumb mixture onto bottom and 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 inches up sides of sprayed pan. Chill.

In large mixing bowl at low speed, beat together cream cheese, sugar, flour, lemon peel, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. At high speed, beat until fluffy. Add the 2 separated egg yolks and the 5 eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in cream until blended. Pour into chilled crust. Bake in preheated 300°F oven until cake tester or wooden pick inserted midway between outer edge and center comes out clean, about 1-1/2 hours. With thin spatula or knife, loosen at edges. While still in pan, cool on wire rack. Refrigerate until firm, at least 8 hours or overnight. To serve, remove rim of pan. Garnish with raspberries, kiwi, and mint leaves, if desired. With thin-bladed knife, cut into wedges, wiping knife with clean, damp towel or rinsing knife in warm water after each cut. Promptly refrigerate leftovers. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
