  1. For the Crust: Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  2. Place the flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor and pulse until it looks like breadcrumbs
  3. Press it down in a sprayed loose bottom tin and also press it among the sides of the pan
  4. Let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes and bake for 10-20 minutes until golden brown (depending on the spreed of your oven)
  5. For the Cheesecake Filling: Whisk the cream cheese and caster sugar together
  6. Sift the flour over the cream cheese filling and fold in the citrus zest together with the vanilla essence
  7. Fold in the eggs one by one and the egg yolks one by one and whisk until well incorporated
  8. Pour the cream cheese filling into the baked cheesecake crust and bake for 1 hour
  9. Let the cheesecake cool down IN THE OVEN, with the oven door slightly open
  10. Cut the crust around loose from the cake tin to prevent the cheesecake from cracking
  11. Remove from the oven as soon as it has cooled down en place on a oven rack till completely cooled down
  12. Almond Praline: Place the sugar in a saucepan over low heat and whisk until sugar dissolves and change in colour. It becomes crumbly and form hard crystals, but it will melt again. (do this over low to medium heat otherwise the sugar will burn if you are impatient)
