1 1/2 lb cream cheese, at room temperature
1 c sugar, granulated
6 oz chocolate, semisweet, melted and cooled
3 tb flour, white
3 lg eggs
2 tb cream, heavy
2 ts vanilla
1 c sour cream
2 ts vanilla
2 tb sugar, granulated

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix chocolate wafer crumbs and
butter. Press firmly onto bottom and about 2 inches up the sides
of an ungreased, 9-inch springform pan. Bake the crust for 10
minutes. Remove from oven and place on rack to cool. Reduce oven
temperature to 300 degrees F.

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl
until it is smooth. Add sugar, chocolate and flour. Beat again,
until the mixture is well blended and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating again after each egg is added.
Beat in the cream and vanilla. Pour mixture into the cooled crust.

Notes: A chocolate wafer is a crisp chocolate cookie about three
inches in diameter and an eighth of an inch thick. If you can't
find them, you can substitute any kind of dry crunchy chocolate-flavored

You can make the crust and filling in a food processor if you have
one. It makes it a lot easier.
