This is a family recipe that has been handed down through the generations - but only to those who love to cook! This is a delicious cheesecake but VERY delicate. DO NOT open the oven for 3 hours or it will fall. You may use low-fat ricotta and cream cheese to cut some calories. This is very rich and only takes a sliver to satisfy.
