   IS IT CHEESECAKE; OR IS IT FUDGE? 1.  Prepare Vanilla
   Cookie Crust: press mixture evenly onto bottom and 2
   inches up side of a buttered 9-inch springform pan. 2.
    Melt chocolate over hot, not boiling, water; cool. 3.
   Preheat oven to very slow (275~). 4.  Beat cream
   cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl with
   electric mixer until smooth. Stir in cooled melted
   chocolate and sour cream until blended.  Pour into
   prepared pan. 5. Bake in preheated very slow oven
   (275~) for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Turn off heat; let
   cake cool in oven with door ajar.  Remove from oven to
   wire rack; cool to room temperature; refrigerate.
    Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls, if
   you wish.
