Bourbon Cheesecake

This holiday season, get your party guests in the spirit with some spirited cheesecake bites. Bourbon livens up these individual sized cheesecakes made with cream cheese, sour cream, and a hint a vanilla. Have a happy holiday!

4 tablespoons (4 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
1 cup water
2 cups (2-8 ounce bricks) of cream cheese, very softened
1 cup sour cream
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup of bourbon

In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin evenly over water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for two minutes. Bring to a boil while whisking until gelatin is full dissolved. Transfer gelatin into a medium bowl and beat in cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, vanilla extract and bourbon until mixture is smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature and pour into individual 1/2 molds or serving cups. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and serve.

Makes 6 cups/12 ½-cup servings (to make less or more double or half the recipe)
