   *melted Everyone has a favorite cheesecake recipe;
   this is mine.
     CRUST - Crush chocolate wafers into fine crumbs.
    Combine with butter, sugar and nutmeg.  Press evenly
   over bottom and sides, to 1/2 inch from the top of a
   9-inch springform pan. Refrigerate. FILLING - Beat
   eggs and sugar until light. Add softened cream cheese
   and beat until smooth. Blend in melted chocolate,
   vanilla, salt and sour cream thoroughly.  Pour batter
   into crumb crust. Bake at 350 for 1 hour, until
   cheesecake is just firm when pan is jiggled slightly.
   Cool in pan on wire rack.
    Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
     If desired, top with whipped cream when served.
