This is a really terrific dessert to make for the holidays. It's also great for a tea or coffee party. And it serves loads of guests!

3 tbls. sweet butter

3- 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate bits
Combine cream cheese, sugar, flour, and sour cream. Mix at medium speed on mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla, mixing well. Stir in chocolate bits, pour over crust. Bake at 325 deg. for 55 min. Loosen cake from rim of pan, cool before removing rim of pan. Serve chilled. 10-12 servings.
Adapted from
Recommended Film:
4 Stars.
Directed by Frank Oz
Cast: Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando, Edward Horton
Extremely well acted, breathtaking, suspense caper drama. Amazing display of great acting when these three are together. Di Niro is the master safecracker, Brando, in perhaps one of his last roles, is the wily fence (very funny), and Norton is the young thief. Setting is Montreal. Unpredictable.

I loved this film and almost anything else with DeNiro in it, but Edward Norton really shines!

This definitely looks like a film I need to dig up. I think we would really enjoy here at the Hyggehus.

As for the cheesecake, well, Willow took the words right out of my mouth!

Hi Kat-
This movie is like a master class in acting.
Have some cheesecake while you're watching it!

I've just said to someone that I love winter but don't like what I look like at the end of it. You know I put pounds on just looking!

I love an unpredictable movie.

The cheesecake looks like the perfect snack for the movie!

Lyn said...

It's always OK to take a small bit of rules!
Then you will love this movie...
