Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, cake flour and almond extract on medium speed until well blended.  Add sour cream, beat on low speed until blended.  Add eggs, one at a time, and beat on low speed until blended.
  Do not overbeat.
Pour half of filling in prepared crust.  Reserve 1/3 cup of the chips, put remaining chips evenly over the filling.  Carefully spoon remaining filling over the chips.  Place on a shallow baking pan and bake for 1 hour or until center is almost set.  Remove from oven.  Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack then use a knife to loosen the cheesecake from the  side of the pan.  Cool completely.

In a small bowl, combine shortening (MUST use shortening, not butter, oil, margarine or spread) and reserved chips.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds and then stir until melted.  Drizzle over cake.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
