Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Wrap the outside of a 10 inch spring form pan with foil.

In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar and corn starch until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in sour cream and ½ cup melted butter. Stir in vanilla and orange extracts, lemon juice, almond extract and amaretto liqueur.

To make crust: Combine macaroons and 2/3 cup melted butter. Blend thoroughly. Place most of the crust mixture in the bottom of the spring form pan. Pour cheese mixture over crust, and sprinkle some crust mixture on top of batter.

Place spring form pan in a roasting pan, and set it in the oven. Fill roasting pan with water. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let set for 2 hours. Invert cheesecake so that the bottom becomes the top.
