Sort of a Dutchy version of cheesecake.

In a medium bowl beat cream cheese. Add sugar, egg yolks, salt, vanilla, and milk.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry.
About stiff peaks: when you lift the beaters up out of the egg whites, the whites will come to a little point. If it immediately flops over, that's soft peaks. Keep beating. If it stays pointed up like a cone-shaped mountain, it's stiff peaks. The whites should look slightly glossy - that's the "not dry" part.
Fold whites into cream cheese mixture and pour into 9" chilled crust.
Bake for 15 minutes at 400°, 15 minutes at 375°, and 15 minutes at 325°.
