Hungarian Rhapsody Coffee Cake

I just finished typing this for my files. It comes from an old cookbook - 1982 - and it sounds both simple and delicious. I thought it might make a nice Christmas morning addition.

Hungarian Rhapsody Coffee Cake

Crust:
1 c melted butter
1/2 c powdered sugar
2 c flour

Mix melted butter, powdered sugar, and flour. Pat into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake 20 min in 350 deg F oven.

Filling:
1 1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
8 eggs, separated
3 t lemon juice or vanilla
1/3 c flour
(2) 8-oz pkg cream cheese

Cream together butter with 1 cup sugar. Add egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon juice or vanilla. Add flour and cream cheese. Cream until smooth. Whip egg whites, gradually add 1/3 c sugar. Fold into egg yolk mixture. Pour into ‘half-baked” crust. Bake in 350 deg oven 30-45 min. Test with knife to see if it comes out clean. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut into small squares. Serves 18-22
