      1/4   c            Butter
    1 1/4   c            Chocolate Baking Crumbs
      1/3   c            Walnuts or Pecans, fine chop
    2       tb           Granulated Sugar
                         -----CHEESECAKE-----
    4       oz           Semi/Bitter Sweet Chocolate
   12       oz           Cream Cheese
      1/2   c            Granulated Sugar
    1       c            Sour Cream
    3       ea           Eggs, beaten
      1/4   c            Amaretto Liqueur
 
   In a 9 inch quiche dish or round glass baking dish,
   melt butter at High for 1 minute. Stir in crumbs, nuts
   and sugar until combined. Press evenly to coat bottom
   and sides of dish. Microwave crust at High for 2
   minutes or until firm. Set aside. Place chocolate in a
   small bowl and microwave at Medium for 3 minutes or
   until melted. Place cream cheese in a microwave safe
   mixing bowl and microwave at Medium for 2 minutes or
   until softened. Add sugar and beat, using an electric
   mixer, until mixture is creamy. Beat in sour cream and
   eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth. Stir in melted
   chocolate and Amaretto until well combined. Carefully
   pour mixture into crumb crust. Place baking dish on an
   inverted plate in microwave oven. Microwave, uncovered
   at Medium for 16 - 20 minutes or until nearly set in
   the centre. Let stand on countertop until cool, then
   refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight before
   serving. For an *impressive* presentation, serve with
   sliced strawberries and top with Amaretto-flavoured
   whipped cream. :) From The Gazette, 91/12/04. Posted
