Cheesecake Showdown: Cheesecake #2

Cheesecake #2 recipe comes with a bit on intrigue behind it. As rumor has it, this recipe was procured by a family friend by the chef at the Excelsior Inn Ristorante.

My oven seems to need a bit longer when cooking things, so I cooked this cheesecake for closer to an hour.
