Double Chocolate Cheesecake

One of my favorite all time desserts is cheesecake.  Once, someone I know, mentioned that she had never tried cheesecake because a dessert that had cheese in the name didn't sound appealing.  I replied that it was a good thing to avoid, because once you try it you will have a hard time turning it down after that.

On of my favorite recipes is from the Kraft website for their double Chocolate cheesecake.  It is VERY tasty -- especially since it isn't too sweet.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

24 Oreo Cookies, crushed (about 2 cups)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 pkg (8 squares) Baker's semi-sweet chocolate, melted slightly cooled
4 eggs
1/2 cup blueberries

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Mix crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 13x9 inch foil-lined pan.  Bake 10 min.
3. Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla with mixer until well blended.  Add chocolate; mix well.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.  Pour over crust.
4. Bake 45 min.or until center is almost set.  Cool completely.  Refrigerate 4 hours.  Use foil to lift cheesecake from pan.  Top with berries.
