- To prepare crust, combine graham cracker crumbs, pecans, granulated sugar and cinnamon. Arrange 2 tablespoons crumb mixture on bottom of each Mason jar.
- Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook peaches, brown sugar and bourbon until peaches are softened and a sauce has formed, about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool.
- Spoon about 1 tablespoon of sauce over crust in each Mason jar and then use about half of peach mixture to top each, dividing evenly between 8 jars.
- With mixer on medium-high speed beat cream cheese, sour cream, granulated sugar and vanilla until smooth and blended, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Stir in lemon zest. Fold in whipped topping until combined.
- Arrange Cheesecake Mousse mixture over peaches in each Mason jar, dividing evenly between jars, about 1/2 cup per jar. Top with remaining peach mixture.
- To garnish, top each jar with cream Chantilly, a peach slice and mint sprig.
