  • FOR CRUST: One 11-ounce box chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • FOR FILLING: 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 20 ounces cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 1/4 cup amaretto
  • 2 drops almond extract
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour


  • 1 FOR THE CRUST: Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  • 2 Butter 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides. Finely grind cookies in food processor. Mix in butter. Press mixture over bottom and 3/4 of the way up sides of prepared pan.
  • 3 FOR THE FILLING: Stir chocolate in top of double boiler set over simmering water until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Cool 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 4 Using electric stand mixer and paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl on medium speed until fluffy, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Add next 3 ingredients, beating until blended after each addition. Beat in melted chocolate. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Mix in flour just until blended. Transfer filling to prepared crust.
  • 5 Bake cheesecake until edges are firm and center is softly set, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Transfer pan to rack and cool. Cover and refrigerate until cheesecake is cold, at least 4 hours or overnight.
