    4      oz.           unsweetened chocolate
    1 3/4  sticks        unsalted butter (14 Tbsp)
    1 1/2  c.            sugar
    2      tbsp.         sugar
   30                    amaretti --  crushed
                         (Italian almond macaroons --  available at sp
                         foods shops & some supermarkets)
    4                    eggs --  room temp.
      1/4  tsp.          salt
    3      tbsp.         light corn syrup
      1/4  c.            heavy cream
      1/4  tsp.          almond extract
      3/4  tsp.          vanilla
    2      tbsp.         Amaretto
                         Whipped cream as an accompaniment
 	  In the top of a double boiler melt 1 ounce of the chocolate with   6
     tablespoons of the butter and let the mixture cool.  In a 9 x 3   inch
     springform pan combine 2 tablespoons of the sugar with the   amaretti, stir
     in the chocolate mixture, and combine the mixture	 well.	Press the crumb
     mixture onto the bottom and 1/3 of the way up   the side of the pan and
     chill the crust.  In the top of a double	boiler melt together the
     remaining 3 ounces of chocolate and the   remaining 8 tablespoons butter and
     let the mixture cool.  In a bowl	with an electric mixer beat together the
     eggs and the salt, add the   remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar, a little at a time
     and beat the mixture   until it is thick and pale.  Beat in the corn syrup,
     the heavy	 cream, the vanilla, the Amaretto, and the chocolate mixture. 
     Pour   the filling into the crust, bake the pie in the middle of a  
     preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes and let it cool on a rack.   Run a
     thin knife around the edge of the pan, remove the side of the   pan, and
     serve the pie with the whipped cream.
