Cheese Torte

This poor little notation that starts on the bottom of one page and continues on the top of the next has seen some rough times. I believe some of the ingredients are missing and probably some of the method. What I can make out seems so incomplete. I did some googling and found a variety of cheesecake recipes that use zwieback crisps in the crust. I really don’t know about this one. At least two lines are missing from the bottom of the first image. This poor book falls apart a little every time I handle it, which I think is part of the reason I’m feeling the urge to scan it recently. It is literally falling apart. So sad!
