Cheesecake Showdown: Cheesecake #3

Cheesecake #3 recipe is my Great Aunt Doris's.

There was one big alteration I had to make to the recipe. I was not able to make her crust because it called for zwieback. Zwieback is now discontinued. I'm sure there are many grandmothers who would be shocked to learn this. Zweiback was a baby teething biscuit staple for years as well as being used for pie crusts. It has now found it's way to the discontinued line. I wasn't up for baking homemade zwieback so I slightly altered the crust recipe based on the other two cheesecake crusts.  Great Aunt Doris's crust called for 1 1/2 cups of zwieback, 2 T of butter, and 2 T of sugar.
