1 untreated lemon peel, grated
1/3 of the seeds of a vanilla bean

Place the dry ingredients in your food processor and blend until you have a fine crumb. Add your melted butter and honey and blend again until just combined.
Press the biscuit mixture in the base of your tin and spread out evenly and firmly. Place in the oven for 10m minutes to bake. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Prepare the filling: in a mix master combine the cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla seeds. Add one egg at a time, the cream and to last the flour.

Place in the oven and carefully pour in boiling water so it rises ¾ the way up the side of the tin, creating a bay Marree. Bake for 55 minutes, or until just set with a slight wobble. Turn off your oven and allow to cool completely inside.
