German Cheese Torte

German Cheese Torte

2/3 pound graham crackers, crushed
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons butter, melted

4 large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 pounds ricotta cheese
1/2 pint heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons flour

Crust: mix all crust ingredients and line the bottom and sides of a spring form pan, saving 1 cup mixture for topping. The recipe calls for 4-6 tablespoons melted margarine. You may not need the full amount to make a proper crust.

Filling: Beat together the eggs and sugar. Add cheese and rest of ingredients; mix well. Pour carefully into lined pans. Top with remaining crumb topping. Bake in preheated 350ºF oven for 1 hour or until firm.
