1 pound cream cheese, softened 2/3 cup sugar 1/4 tsp almond flavoring or 1 tsp lemon juice 3 eggs 1 cup sour cream 3 tbs sugar 1 tsp vanilla sugar 1 bar bittersweet chocolate In a mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese, 2/3 cup sugar and the almond flavoring or lemon juice until very fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating with an electric mixer at low speed after each addition, just until blended. Pour the batter into an ungreased 9 inch pie plate. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 35 minutes or until set. Test by inserting a knife just off-center, it should come out clean. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the sour cream, 3 tbs of sugar and the tsp of vanilla sugar. Carefully spread the cream over the hot pie. Cool. Using a vegetable peeler, shave thin curls of chocolate over the top of the pie. Refrigerate to chill thoroughly.
