Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350F. On a floured surface, roll out dough to fit a 10-in flan tin with a removable bottom. Place dough in tin without stretching.

FILLING: Beat cream cheese, oil, sugar, egg yolks, cornstarch, vanilla and milk in a large bowl until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into cream cheese mixture. Pour into pastry shell.

Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Turn off oven. Let cheesecake cool in oven with door open slightly. Remove cooled cheesecake from tin and serve.
