Ameretto Cheesecake

This one comes from my husband.  It's an absolutely delicious  dessert.  Dangerous for me as it's one of the few I will eat the whole thing if self control did not exist.

Perfect for Christmas, New Year or any other special dinner party.

Base:  1 1/4 cup Oreo cookie crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 lb butter
2 blocks semi sweet chocolate
Melt the chocolate and butter together add the crumbs and sugar until well combined.  Press on the bottom of a greased springform pan and set aside.

Ingredients: Cake
3 Blocks Cream Cheese
1/2 cup ground almonds
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp Ameretto
1 tsp Pure Almond Extract

Cream the cheese with the almonds, then add other ingredients until smooth.  Gently pour over the chocolate cookie base. Bake at a 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.   A tip I picked up some time ago was to put an oven proof cup with water in the oven with the cheesecake.  It prevents it from cracking while baking.

1 cup sour cream
1 tsp almond extract
2 tbsp sugar.  Mix well and spread on cheesecake while still hot after removing from the oven.  Garnish with sliced almonds.  Place back in the oven at 350 F for 5 minutes.  Remove, let cool completely before removing the springform.
