Is it legal for people under 21 to eat food with a noticeable level of alcohol in the recipe?!

Question: Is it legal for people under 21 to eat food with a noticeable level of alcohol in the recipe!?
My coworker made strawberry tequila cheesecake and brought it in to share at work!. I had a slice, and the tequila flavor was definitely noticeable!. It occurred to me a little late that I wasn't sure if it was legal for me to eat an alcoholic dessert, as I am still a few months shy of 21!. Does anybody know what the laws are for such things in the U!.S!. (specifically Nevada)!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Pour ME a slice o' that bad-boy, please!.

Actually, if--IF-- the cheesecake was baked, the alcohol was evaporated at 140 degrees, leaving the flavor behind!. BUT: if it wasn't baked, you should turn yourself in to the cops and confess your sin! Just kidding!.

And those fruitcakes that passed around at Christmas!.!.!.some are made with real booze, some are made booze-flavored products that contain almost no alcohol, if any!. But look at a bottle of vanilla extract: it's about 80% alcohol!.

Bottom line: I wouldn't worry about it, unless you had one slice today, then woke up tomorrow and had 2, then 3 the next day, etc!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

um!.!. im not exactly sure, but i do kno that at certain tempatures of cooking the alcohol gets 'cooked out' or something, im not quite sure, but it seems rather logical!. so i would say it would be fine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No not at all when its cooked into the food it dissolves all the real alcohol and just gives it the flavor it should like tiramisu!.!. no worries your not criminal!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

the actual alcohol is cooked out leaving nothing more that the flavor!. It won't get you drunk or anything!.!.!.!. like eating a rumcake!.!.!. harmless!Www@FoodAQ@Com
