Ingredients

12 chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
1 tablespoon butter, melted

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup sour cream

Increase oven temperature to 350ºF. In mixer, combine cream cheese and chocolate until well blended. Add sugar, sour cream and vanilla; beat until fluffy. Set aside. In blender or food processor, process dried plums and eggs until smooth. Stir into cream cheese mixture. Pour mixture over cookie crust. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the center is just set. Let cool at room temperature for 1 hour.

Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan by running knife around inside of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Carefully remove side of pan and serve.

Tip: To melt chocolate chips, place chocolate in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at HIGH an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
