"Belgium" Cheesecake

A friend of mine gave me this recipe and I hope that I can make this for her sometime soon.  She said it was called a "Belgium Cheesecake" a few months ago and I searched to internet looking and looking but could not find the recipe.  My friend got in touch with the person that makes this cheesecake (they do no live in Michigan) and got the recipe for me.

Belgium Cheesecake
Take 1 cup water, 1/2  cup sugar, and 1/2 package of unflavored gelatin (.25 oz.), and mix.
Heat in a double boiler until gelatin and sugar dissolve.

Take 1/2 cup of cold water and 4 egg yolks and mix with a whisk or mixer.  Add this to the hot mixture in double boiler and stir until mixture starts to thicken.

Remove from heat.

Mix 12 oz of cream cheese and 2.5 tablespoons lemon juice with a mixer until creamy.  Blend this into the hot mixture until well mixed and creamy.  Place the mixture in refrigerator for about 45 minutes or until it starts to set.

Make a Graham cracker crust: 1 cup crushed graham crackers with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter.   Butter a spring-form pan with butter and 1/2 of the sugar graham cracker mixture.

Whip 1/2 cup whipping cream and then blend in with the cheesecake filling that was in the refrigeration.

Whip 4 egg whites to stiff peaks and mix into the cheesecake mixture.

Pour cheese cake mixture into graham cracker lined pan, cover the cake with the rest of the graham crackers and chill for at least 3  hours.
