      1/2   c            Whole almonds
    1       lb           Cream cheese
      3/4   c            Sugar
    3                    Eggs
    1       t            Vanilla extract

   Spread nuts in a baking pan and bake in a preheated
   325F oven for 8 minutes or until lightly toasted.  Let
   cool and finely chop. With an electric mixer, beat
   cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in eggs, vanilla,
   Amaretto and sour cream.  Reserve 2 tablespoons of
   nuts, and stir in remaining nuts. Pour batter into a
   greased 9-inch springform pan. Sprinkle reserved nuts
   over the top.  Bake in the middle of a preheated 325F
   oven for 25 minutes or until just barely set.  Turn
   off the oven, leave the door ajar, and let cool in the
   oven for 1 hour longer. Chill. To serve, remove pan
   sides and cut into wedges.
