   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/4   c            Graham cracker crumbs
      3/4   c            Sugar
    2       tb           Sugar
      1/4   c            Unslated butter -- melted
    6       oz           Semisweet chocolate
      1/4   c            Rum
    1       lb           Cream cheese
      1/2   c            Sour cream
    1       tb           Vanilla
    5                    Eggs
 
   Preheat oven to 325~. Butter inside of springform pan
   well & cover the outside (bottom & sides) with a sheet
   of heavy-duty aluminum foil, shiny side out. This
   reflects heat away from cheesecake & prevents it from
   baking too fast & becoming overcooked. Mix graham
   cracker crumbs with 2 tb of the sugar & add melted
   butter. Press evenly on bottom & sides of pan;
   refrigerate until ready to use. Cut chocolate into
   small pieces. Melt in microwave; combine with rum. Set
   aside. Beat cream cheese with electric mixer until
   ight & fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar, sour cream &
   vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix well. Place bowl
   over a pan of hot water & mix until smooth (do not let
   water touch bottom of bowl). Pour about 1 1/4 cups of
   this batter into a separte bowl & set aside. Whisk
   remaining batter w/the chocolate, then stir over hot
   water until smooth. Take springform pan from
   refrigerator & fill w/chocolate batter. Gently pour
   plain batter over top & make swirls down into the
   chocolate batter with a fork. Place on middle rack of
   oven & bake for 50 minutes. Cool to room temp, remove
   foil & rim of pan & refrigerate overnight.
