Spiced Eggnog Cheesecake Dessert Shots

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2/3 c eggnog
3 T condensed milk
1/2 packet unflavored gelatin
(**)
1/3 c water
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1/8 t ground cinnamon

Crust:
1 c crushed graham crackers (preferably cinnamon)
3 T melted butter
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1/8 t ground cinnamon

Prepare the crust by combining the crushed graham crackers, melted butter, nutmeg & cinnamon in a bowl and mixing together until completely moistened. Spoon 2 teaspoons of crust into each shot glass and pack the crust down gently. Set aside.

Dissolve the gelatin into the hot water and stir until completely dissolved. Set aside. Whip the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth & fluffy. Add the eggnog and condensed milk and mix for about 2 minutes at medium speed, adding the spices about midway. Add the gelatin and beat until firm. Spoon the cheesecake mixture into the prepared shot glasses and chill for at least an hour before serving. Dust with extra nutmeg for garnish and enjoy!

**you may use a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice instead of gelatin ...  it will help the mixture become more firm, like a no-bake cheesecake. Doing so will result in a slightly more creamy dessert, with a consistency much like that of zabaglione.
