Grind the cheese three times. In a large bowl, blend softened butter, sugar and yolks. Cut the vanilla pod in half, scrape the seeds out with the blunt side of a knife, and mix them into the dough. Add the cheese and stiffly beaten egg whites. Mix the dough gently. Optionally, add raisins or diced candied orange peel. Cover the bottom of a cake tin with crushed shortcrust biscuits and pour the cheese dough over it. Bake for 60 minutes in an oven preheated to around 170°C.
