Post ISO Marx Brothers cheesecake recipe

Ok, was reading about cheesecakes on here and had an idea, funny how those things happen sometimes. Years ago, I had a recipe I copied out of a Bon Appetite (sp) magazine for Marx Brothers cheesecake, from the Marx Brothers restaurant in Alaska, great cheescake. I have since lost it. I was hoping someone might have that recipe and could give it to me. Thanks in advance. David.

I searched on the Bon Appétit, Epicurious and Gourmet on-line archives with no luck. However, there are a lot of sites offering the recipe (Google search results) but this one for Marx Brothers Cheesecake looks to be fairly typical of the ones I compared.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Nope, no directions. Should we add them here?

Blend first 3 ingredients together and press into bottom of springform pan.
Blend rest of ingredients together until consistency is smooth. Pour into springform and bake for about an hour in a 350 oven. Cake is done when top is dry looking right to the center and "bounces back" when touched. (Bain marie directions anyone? I've never used one so I haven't a clue)

My question is 6pk (8oz) cream cheese. Are we suggesting 48 oz of cream cheese in this recipe? That CAN'T be right. I could see 2 or 3 but not 6.

Many of Maida Heatter's cheesecakes call for 32 oz of cream cheese for an 8 x 3-inch pan.

Ok, found a place with a recipe that looks like what I remember, altho at my age what do I remember? Hmmm, can't post a URL. And yes it does call for 3 lbs of cream cheese lol. That is why it is soooo good. Why I did not google it, I do not know, just kept checking the recipes at Bon Appetite. Thanks everyone. David. Oh and Stacey, it was not just you on the directions. I see you are a fellow Texan. I now live in N Carolina, but will always be a Texan.
