Ingredients for Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites

For the Cheesecake:

2 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
24 gingersnap cookies

For the Icing:

½ cup sour cream
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
24 mini gingerbread men cookies

How to Make Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites

Preheat oven to 375F.

Line muffin tins with parchment baking cups. (You can use other baking cups, but parchment will keep the cheesecake from sticking once done baking.) Place a gingersnap cookie in the bottom of each one. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla extract until well blended.

Add the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and mix well.

Fill the muffin tins about 2/3 full with the cream cheese mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before refrigerating for 2 hours.

In a medium bowl whisk together the sour cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to make the icing.

Remove the paper liners from the cheesecakes.

Using an icing spatula or a knife, spread the icing over the top of the cheesecakes and decorate with the mini gingerbread men.
