 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.
