5. Mix remaining sugar and sour cream with the mint syrup in a bowl until smooth. Carefully pour or spoon filling on top, set cheesecake in an even layer. Bake 15 to 20 minutes more until filling is just set but still a little loose (it will completely set as it cools and is refrigerated). Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Once fully cooled, cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. When cheesecake is fully set, carefully remove the edges  of the pan and the foil. Garnish top with whipped cream and chocolate shaving if desired.
