Ingredients

Crust

1
package (9 oz) thin chocolate wafer cookies, crushed (1 3/4 cups)
6
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

2
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
2/3
cup sugar

Expert Tips

Chocolate and cheesecake--can't go wrong with that! Don't worry about the center of the cheesecake being soft when you take it out of the oven; it becomes firm as it cools. To cut cheesecake easily, dip the knife into water and clean it off after every cut.
