New York-Style Cheesecake

1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
1 tsp (5 ml) grated lemon zest
1 egg yolk
8 Tbsp (120 ml) butter, softened
About 2 Tbsp (30 ml) water

40 oz (1100 g) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) sugar
3 Tbsp(45 ml) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 ml) grated lemon zest
5 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla extract
1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream

Mix the flour, sugar, and lemon zest in a large bowl. Add the egg
yolk and butter and blend with a fork. Work the mixture, adding
a few drops of water at a time, until a dough is formed. Form into
a ball, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll one third of the
dough on a floured surface into a 9 inch (23 cm) round and ease it
into the bottom of a buttered 9 inch spring-form pan. This dough
is fragile, so if it breaks just patch it back together. Roll the
remaining dough in pieces and fit it against the sides of the pan,
pressing the seams together as you go.

Beat the cheese, sugar, flour, and lemon zest in a large bowl until
smooth. Beat in the eggs and yolks, followed by the vanilla and
cream. Pour the cheese mixture into the crust and place on a
heavy-duty baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 550F (290C) oven for
15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 200F (90C) and bake 1
hour. Turn the oven off, open the oven door, and allow the cheesecake
to cool for 30 minutes. Cake may be served chilled or at room
temperature. Makes one 9-inch (23 cm) cake to serve 10 to 12.
