   20                    Oreo Cookies
    2 3/4  Cups          Flour
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
    1      Teaspoon      Baking Soda
    8      Ounces        Unsalted Butter
    1      Teaspoon      Vanilla
      1/4  Teaspoon      Almond Extract
    1 1/4  Cups          Sugar
    3                    Eggs
    1      Cup           Sour Cream
    6      Ounces        Semisweet Chocolate
      1/2  Stick         Unsalted Butter
    1      Tablespoon    Whipping Cream
 Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour a 12-cup capacity Bundt pan.
 Chop cookies into quarters and set aside.
 In small bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
 In a large bowl, beat butter until soft.  Add vanilla and almond extracts
 and the sugar.  Beat well.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after
 each addition.  On low speed, add the dry ingredients in three additions
 alternately with the sour cream in two additions.  Place about 1 1/2 cups
 of the mixture into the pan.  Form a shallow trench with a spoon.  Add
 the oreos to the remaining batter, folding as gently as possible just to
 the mix them with the batter.  Place the batter into the pan over the
 plain batter.  Bake for 1 hour.  Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then
 invert cake onto a rack to finish cooling.  When cool, top with glaze.
 Break up the chocolate and place in top of double boiler with butter.
 Stir until melted.  Stir in the cream gradually until the mixture is
 thick and just barely thin enough to flow.  Pour around the top of the
 cake and let dribble down the sides.
