  • ½ stick softened butter
  • 1 ½ lbs softened cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and coat an 8 inch spring form pan with cooking spray.
  2. Rub the melted butter into the graham cracker crumbs until the crumbs are all moistened, and then press the mixture into the bottom of the spring form pan.

  5. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla and sour cream.
  6. Put ⅓ of the mixture in one bowl and the remaining ⅓ in another bowl.
