Grease the inside of the inner cooking pan lightly and evenly with butter.
Soften cream cheese at room temperature or heat in microwave oven at 500 watts for 30 seconds.
Place softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix with spatula until smooth. Add sugar and blend.
Blend in yolks one at a time to the cream cheese mixture. Add sifted all purpose flour, fresh cream, lemon juice, melted butter and optional vanilla extract, and blend.
Make meringue. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until foamy with a whisk. Do not over whisk. Gradually add sugar until the egg whites begin to hold their shape.
