Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

This wonderful recipe comes from an old Mrs. Field's cookbook. I have wonderful memories of my oldest sister making it when I was growing up, and it was such a decadent treat for us! It's ALWAYS a huge hit, it involves hardly any active prep time, and is a great spin on regular cheesecake.

Filling: Beat cream cheese until smooth with electric mixer. Blend in sugar and sour cream. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth. Stir in 1 c. chocolate chips. Pour into crust-lined pan and smooth top with spatula. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.
