Hazelnut Crust

2 cups hazelnuts, toasted (if not available, can use pecans)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Wrap foil tightly around outside of 9-inch-diameter springform pan (this step was
specifically for the original cheesecake recipe). Blend hazelnuts and sugar in food processor until nuts are finely ground. Add melted butter; blend until moist clumps form. Press nut mixture onto bottom (not sides) of prepared pan.

Bon Appetit
