Pistachio Cheesecake: Yes! A pistachio cheesecake! The tallest cheesecake I’ve ever made. Beautiful green color. Perfect for a special occasion especially St. Patrick’s Day or Christmas! This cheesecake is very creamy and doesn’t have the traditional graham cracker crust. With a mixture of ground almonds, butter and almond extract serving as the crust for this amazing cheesecake it really sets this cheesecake above the rest. Your guests will love the delicious pistachio flavor!
