dessert will easily pass for a high-fat indulgence! 
Prep Time:30 min  
Start to Finish:14 hr 5 min  
Makes:16 servings  
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs 
2 tablespoons margarine, melted 
2 tablespoons sugar 
5 packages (8 ounces each) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel) , softened 
1 3/4 cups sugar 
1/4 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour 
1 tablespoon grated orange peel 
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 1/4 cups fat-free cholesterol- free egg product 
2 egg yolks 
 Berries or cut-up fresh fruit, if desired 
1.  Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 425ºF. Lightly grease side 
only of 9-inch springform pan with shortening. 
2.  In small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, margarine and 2 tablespoons 
sugar; press evenly on bottom of pan.
3.  In large bowl, beat cream cheese, 1 3/4 cups sugar, the flour, orange peel, 
lemon peel and salt with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until 
smooth. Beat in egg product and egg yolks, beating on low speed until well 
blended. Pour over graham cracker mixture.
4.  Bake 15 minutes.
5.  Reduce oven temperature to 200ºF. Bake 1 hour longer. Cheesecake may not 
appear to be done, but if a small area in the center seems soft, it will become 
firm as cheesecake cools. (Do not insert a knife to test for doneness because 
the hole could cause cheesecake to crack.) Turn off oven; leave cheesecake in 
oven 30 minutes longer. Remove from oven and cool in pan on wire rack away from 
drafts 30 minutes. 
6.  Without releasing or removing side of pan, run metal spatula along side of 
cheesecake to loosen. Refrigerate uncovered about 3 hours or until chilled; 
cover and continue refrigerating at least 9 hours but no longer than 48 hours.
7.  Run metal spatula along side of cheesecake to loosen again. Remove side of 
pan; leave cheesecake on pan bottom to serve. Serve with berries, if desired. 
Store covered in refrigerator.
