Some of the above can happen at the same time. The work time is between 30 and 45 minutes. That is probably slightly longer than most cheesecakes, but it includes a lemon curd for the top of the cheeecake. Most of the time is baking and cooling.
This is a very nice cheesecake. I made it in a 7" spring form pan, which works well with a half recipe.
