Ingredients

1-1/2 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
1 cup almonds, finely chopped, lightly toasted
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
Filling:
3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup Amaretto
Topping:
2 cups sour cream
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon Amaretto
lightly toasted slivered almonds; for garnish


Crust: Combine crumbs, almonds, butter and sugar in a bowl. Press into bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan.



Filling: Cream cheese and sugar together in a large mixer bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cream and Amaretto. Beat until light. Pour into crust. Bake at 375ºF. for 40 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes on wire rack. Filling will not be set.



Topping: Combine sour cream, sugar and Amaretto. Spread evenly on cake. Bake 5 to 10 minutes; top will still be jiggly in center. Cool completely on rack. Cover lightly and chill overnight. Remove from springform pan. Place almond slivers around outside edge of top of cake.
