Easter cheesecake craze

This cheesecake was not exactly what I wanted, but it made everyone extatic, so I decided to post the recipe.

125 g butter
90g sugar
1 egg
250g plain flour

Cheese mix:
10 eggs
1kg cheese
50g starch /semolina
400g icing sugar
100g butter 
vanilla extract
50g raisins

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.  To prepare the base place the butter and sugar in a food processor and whiz until just combined. Add the egg. Tip in the flour and process until the dough just comes together. Knead the dough lightly, wrap in cling film and chill for 30 min before rolling out. Line a large baking tin with the pastry and bake for 20 min.
Mix the butter together with the sugar and egg yolks. Add the cheese and raisins. Beat the egg whites. Gently fold the starch or semolina and the beaten whites into the cheese mixture, pour over the base and bake for an hour.

Not a cheesecake. Obviously. But this is what we saw this easter!
