  • CRUST: Combine vanilla wafers, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 bag almonds, and melted butter in a food processor to create crust. Press into 9" springform pan and set aside.
  • FILLING: Combine cream cheese, 1 1/4 cups sugar, amaretto, and salt in food processor until smooth. Add 1 egg at a time and pulse just until blended. (Too much mixing at this point will make your cheesecake crack when cooked.)
  • Pour into springform pan and bake at 350°F for 50 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
  • TOPPING: While cheesecake is cooling, in a small bowl mix sour cream, 1/4 cup sugar and almond extract. Pour over top of cheesecake and return to oven for additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and add 1 bag of slivered almonds to top of cake and cool completely on rack. Refrigerate for 8 hours.


I use Splenda sugar instead of regular as my husband is a diabetic. You can't tell the difference. I place a pan of water under cheesecake on next shelve in the oven to help prevent cracking.
