Pistachio Cheesecake

   This appealing cheesecake caught my eye while looking for a different dessert to make for our Father's Day celebration this year. It is creamy smooth and the almond crust and chocolate drizzle made it perfect.  It was a big hit, got raves and requests for the recipe.

Pistachio Cheesecake
Slice of Pistachio Cheesecake

2-cups all-purpose flour
1/2-cup ground almonds
1/2-cup cold butter
6-(8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1-(14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
2-packages (3.4 ounce) packages instant pistachio pudding mix
5-large eggs
chocolate syrup
whipped cream topping and more chopped pistachios for garnish

   Step 1...In a small bowl, combine the 2-cups flour and 1/2-cup ground almonds, cut in the 1/2-cup cold butter until crumbly. Press on the bottom and 1-1/4 inch up the sides of a greased 10-inch springform pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

   Step 2...Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the 6 packages cream cheese,  can of sweetened condensed milk and 2 packages pistachio pudding mixes until smooth. Add the 5-large eggs and beat on low-speed, just until combined. Pour over the baked crust. Place springform pan on a baking sheet, reduce the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen; cool for 1 hour longer. Then refrigerate overnight.
   Step 3...When ready to serve; remove sides of the springform pan, slice the cheesecake, place slices on serving plates and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Garnish with whipped cream and pistachios.

Makes 12 to 14 serving.

Tis wonderful for sure, I like to make chocolate covered pistachios instead of peanuts...a great treat. Pistachios are also great in a salad.

That sounds really, really good. My husband doesn't care much for cheesecake, but he does like pistachios. This might just be something he'll eat. Thanks for sharing :)
