Chocolate Pistachio Cheesecake

Recipe by LilPinkieJ
READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all crust ingredients and mix until well combined. Press the cookie mixture into the bottom and sides of a 10-inch tart pan. Bake the crust until fragrant, about 8 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before adding the filling.
  • To prepare the filling, place the cream cheese and sugar in a large metal bowl and, using an electric mixer, beat until creamy and smooth, about 4 minutes. Turn the mixer off and scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Continue mixing on low and add the egg; beat to incorporate. Scrape the sides of the bowl again. With the mixer still on low, pour in melted chocolate, and mix.
  • Pour the filling mixture over the cooled crust. If the mixture is too firm to settle, smooth the top of the filling with a few drops of water. Bake until the cake rises and puffs at the center, about 25 minutes. Remove fr om the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before proceeding.
  • To make the cream, combine powdered sugar and pistachios in a food processor. While the processor is running, slowly pour in heavy cream.
  • Within a few minutes the mixture will thicken. Spread the cream over the cheesecake.
  • Slice, serve, and enjoy!
