New York Cheesecake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 pounds cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly coat a 10 inch springform pan with spray oil. Note: You could use a 9x13 inch pan instead.
To make the crust: 
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 cup butter or margarine. Spread to the edges of the pan. Prick all over with a fork, then bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). 
Allow to cool.
Increase oven temperature to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 3/4 cups sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 5 eggs and the yolks and mix thoroughly. 
Add cream and mix only enough to blend.
Pour filling over crust and bake for 10 minutes at 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). 
Reduce temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) and continue to bake for one hour. 
Turn oven off, but leave cake in for another hour. 
Don't worry if it looks a little jiggly in the center.
Chill overnight. 
This is imperative! If desired, top with your favorite fruit or serve plain.
