sugar and cream cheese until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the
flour, salt, vanilla bean, and egg yolks, beaten lightly, and combine the
mixture well. Stir in the sour cream. In a bowl, beat the egg whites until
they just hold stiff peaks and fold them into the cream cheese mixture
gently but thoroughly. Pour the filling into the pan and run a rubber
spatula through the filling in a circle about one inch from the rim to help
the cake rise evenly. Bake the cake in the middle of a preheated 350f oven

Let the cake cool completely or until it is set, in the pan on a rack.
Chill the cake covered, overnight. Remove the cake from the pan and garnish
it with lemon slices. a 1945 Gourmet Mag. favorite.
