Pudding that Tastes Like Mom's Cheesecake

Last week I turned my mom's cheesecake recipe into a pudding-like dessert...on purpose! This is so easy and because it's so rich, a little goes a long way.  This makes 10 to 12 small servings.. and even has a graham cracker crumb topping.

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 Tbl butter, melted
2 tsp sugar
Combine all the ingredients and bake at 350F in a small baking dish for 20 minutes.  Set aside.

1 cup masarpone cheese
1/3 cup cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
8 ounces heavy whipping cream
1/4 tsp gelatin powder

Sprinkle the heavy whipping cream with the gelatin and the whip until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
Thoroughly beat the mascarpone, cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
Fold in the whipped cream, cover and chill for a few hours.
Serve in small dessert dishes sprinkled with a teaspoon of the graham cracker mixture.
