DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, and almonds; cut in butter until crumbly. Press onto the bottom and 1 1/4 inches up the sides of a greased 9- or 10-inch springform pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, beat room temperature cream cheese, milk and pudding mixes until smooth. (Note: if the cream cheese is not at room temperature, the cheesecake will turn out with small lumps.) Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Do not overbeat. Pour mixture over crust. Put a piece of foil underneath the pan and wrap it up a little bit on the sides.
  • Place pan in another pan or cooking dish that is about 2 or 3 inches larger around than the springform pan. Place pan in the oven and pour boiling water into the water bath pan about halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  • Reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the center is almost set. Place on a wire rack until the cheesecake has cooled. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen. Refrigerate, covered, overnight (the cheesecake is even better if you leave it in the refrigerator for 2 days before eating).
  • Remove sides of pan. Slice cheesecake; drizzle slices with chocolate syrup. Garnish with whipped cream and pistachios, if desired.
