      1/4  c             butter
      1/2  tsp           cinnamon

                         CAKE
    6      oz            White chocolate chips
    1      lb            Cream cheese
      3/4  c             Sugar
    3                    Eggs
    1 1/2  ts            Vanilla extract
      3/4  c             Sour cream
    2      tb            Unsweetened cocoa
                         RASPBERRY
                         SAUCE
    2 1/2  c             Raspberries
                         Sugar -- to taste
    1      tbsp          Grand Marnier
 
 Place chocolate in a double boiler and heat over hot water until it melts.
 Stir to blend and let cool to room temperature.
 
 Microwave almonds and butter for crust for 1 minute.  Stir dry crust ingredients
together in 9 springform pan.	Add butter and nuts and pat firmly onto bottom. 
Grease sides of pan.
 
 With an electric mixer, blend cheese and sugar until smooth.  Mix in eggs,
 vanilla, and sour cream.  Stir in melted chocolate.  NOTE: it is important
 to have the cheesecake ingredients and the melted chocolate close to the
 same temperature when they are combined so that they blend together
 smoothly.  Pour into pan.  Put another pan with water into the preheated oven. 
This will prevent the top of the cheesecake from cracking.  Bake in the middle of
a preheated 325F oven for 45 minutes or until just barely set.	Turn off the
oven, leave the door ajar, and let cool in oven for 1 hour longer. Chill.  Just
before serving, dust cocoa through a sieve making a ring around the cheesecake.
 
 Prepare raspberry sauce:  Reserve 1/2 cup raspberries for garnish.  In a
 blender, puree the remaining berries and push through a sieve.  Stir in
 sugar to taste and the Grand Marnier.  To serve, spoon raspberry sauce on to
desert plates.	Remove pan sides of cheesecake and cut into wedges.  Place on
raspberry sauce and garnish with berries.
