Grapefruit Cheese Cake

1/4 pound margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour, sifted
1 cup nuts, coarsely ground
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 or 2 cups fresh Texsun grapefruit sections
2 3-ounce packages cream cheese

4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup canned Texsun grapefruit juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

4 egg whites
8 tablespoons sugar

Mix all crust ingredients and shape into 10-inch pie plate. Cover bottom with grapefruit sections. Soften cheese by mashing; add yolks, sugar, grapefruit juice, and vanilla and beat until smooth as batter. Pour over fruit. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees F., or until custard is firm. Remove pie, top with meringue made from stiffly beaten egg whites and sugar. Return to oven to brown meringue.
