  1. Place first 3 ingredients in a food processor; process until finely ground. Stir in butter. Press cookie crumb mixture into bottom of an ungreased 9 springform pan. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, 1 1/4 cups sugar, and cardamom at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add 1 1/2 cups sour cream, flour, and vanilla bean paste; beat until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears. Pour batter into baked crust.
