Categories: Cheesecakes / Chocolate / Desserts

20    Chocolate Cookies
2  Tablespoons  Butter, Melted
16  Oz  Canned Pear Halves, Drained
24  Oz  Cream Cheese, Softened
3/4  Cup  Granulated Sugar
2    Eggs
3  Tablespoons  Flour
2  Tablespoons  Lemon Juice
1 1/2  Teaspoons  Lemon Rind, Grated
1/2  Cup  Whole Milk
    Sour Cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Crush the cookies thoroughly. Stir in the butter. Press the mixture onto the bottom and 1" up the sides of a springform pan. Drain the pear halves on paper toweling. Place in the crust, cut side down. Beat the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the eggs, flour, lemon juice and lemon rind. Gradually add the milk. Pour the mixture over the pears in the crust. Bake until the center is set (about 1 hour). Cool completely. Chill overnight. Remove the collar from the springform pan, leaving the cheesecake on the pan bottom. Place on a serving plate. Spread or pipe sour cream onto the top.
