 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------------CRUMB CRUST--------------------------------
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 1 1/4 c Chocolate Baking Crumbs

  • 2 tb Granulated Sugar


4 oz Semi/Bitter Sweet Chocolate
12 oz Cream Cheese

In a 9 inch quiche dish or round glass baking dish, melt butter at High for

coat bottom and sides of dish. Microwave crust at High for 2 minutes or
until firm. Set aside. Place chocolate in a small bowl and microwave at
Medium for 3 minutes or until melted. Place cream cheese in a microwave
safe mixing bowl and microwave at Medium for 2 minutes or until softened.
Add sugar and beat, using an electric mixer, until mixture is creamy. Beat

and Amaretto until well combined. Carefully pour mixture into crumb crust.
Place baking dish on an inverted plate in microwave oven. Microwave,
uncovered at Medium for 16 - 20 minutes or until nearly set in the centre.
Let stand on countertop until cool, then refrigerate for at least 8 hours
or overnight before serving. For an *impressive* presentation, serve with
sliced strawberries and top with Amaretto-flavoured whipped cream.
