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.
