      In a sealable plastic bag, thoroughly crush chocolate cookies with a rolling pin. Add cookie crumbs and sugar to a bowl. Melt butter and blend well with the crumb-and-sugar mixture. Press into the bottom and up along the sides of a buttered and floured 8-inch tart pan. (A springform pan or regular pie pan are also good options.) Cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm.

      While crust is setting, beat cream cheese in a bowl until soft. Add sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract, and beat mixture until fluffy and smooth. In a separate chilled bowl, beat whipping cream until firm peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese. Add the filling into the chocolate crust and spread out evenly.
