Hi everyone! I'm a newbie... sort of. I used to be a member a couple of years ago, but never renewed my membership since I never had time to get on anymore with my new job.
A friend of mine would like this recipe...
Here's a tried and true chocolate cheesecake that we like - I don't know if your friend would mind the addition of almond, but I thought I'd post it anyway.
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/3 cup butter, melted
Mix together, press into bottom of a 9" springform pan.
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
2 T flour
3 (8oz) pkgs cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together sugar, cocoa and flour with whisk. Combine cream cheese, sugar mixture and sour cream, beat until smooth. Beat in eggs and extracts on low speed just until combined. Pour over crust. Bake 425 for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 250, bake 55 minutes more. Cool on rack, refrigerate. Garnish with toasted sliced almonds.

Yes, the nuts aren't mixed in - they're just on the top.
