Cheesecake Layer
  1. Sprinkle gelatin over water and set aside for 5 minutes or so to bloom.
  2. Beat ricotta over medium speed until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Whip chilled cream until stiff and nearly doubled in volume. Fold into ricotta. Set aside.
  4. Beat together sour cream, kirsch, lemon juice and condensed milk. Fold in dissolved gelatin. Fold this mixture into ricotta mixture until fully incorporated. Fold in chopped dark chocolates and chopped morello cherries.
  1. Spoon ricotta mixture over prepared base until nearly full. Chill for 30 minutes or until just set. Top each mini cheesecake with 2 to 3 teaspoons cherry preserves and top with a stemmed fresh cherry.
  2. Chill mini cheesecake for 8 hours or overnight, until completely set. Serve in foil baking cup liners or unmold onto serving plates.
  1. To easily unmold mini cheesecake, dip a cloth in hot water and wipe along the bottom and sides of baking foil. Gently tear off foil, a portion at a time, until completely unmolded.
  2. Replace kirsch with some of the cherry syrup from morello cherries if you wish the recipe to be alcohol-free.
