Early in the day: 1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 6 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel. With pastry blender or two knives used scissor fashion, cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Press one third of the chilled dough evenly into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake 8 - 10 minutes until golden brown. Cool. Press rest of dough around sides of pan to within 1 inch of top. Do not bake. 3. In a large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat cream cheese until smooth' gradually add Cheddar cheese, beating until well blended - about 5 minutes. Occasionally scrape bowl with rubber spatula. 4. At medium speed, gradually beat in 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 3/4 cups sugar, 2 egg yolks, and remaining ingredients until blended. Beat 5 minutes, occasionally scraping bowl. 5. Pour mixture into crust. Bake 10 minutes. Turn oven control to 300F and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes longer or until top is firm when lightly pressed with a finger. 6. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cake will sink in center, leaving cracks around crust. With spatula, loosen pan side and remove. Loosen cake from pan bottom; slide onto plate; chill. Makes about 12 servings.
