Meanwhile prepare the topping cheese. Mix all ingredients except eggs. Separate whites from yolks. Then beat the eggs whites with cheese first, and add yolks. Then mix into one unique mixture. Book.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Remove dough from refrigerator and line it in a cake pan with your hands. Try to cover up to the edges. Prick with a fork. Return the pan to cool for a moment.
Pour the cheese cream into the pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, watching carefully. Cover with foil if top is browning too quickly.
Remove pan and cool for 5 minutes. Return the cake on a rack, remove the pan and allow to finish cooling a couple of minutes.

I prefer it still slightly warm…
