The beautiful nutty flavor of this White Chocolate Cheesecake with Pistachios will become a family favorite with the first bite.
– shelled pistachios – chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate graham crackers – sugar – salt
Heat the oven to 325° F. Spray the bottom and the sides of a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Wrap the outside of the pan with foil.
In a food processor, pulse together the pistachios, cookies, sugar, and salt until finely ground. Drizzle the melted butter over the crumbs and pulse until it has the consistency of wet sand.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press it into the bottom and up the sides of the pan in an even layer using a flat-bottomed measuring cup.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until set. Let the crust cool on a wire rack while you prepare the filling.
