So Let’s Talk About Cheesecake Mousse
Semi Homemade Pistachio Mousse Options
- SUGAR COOKIE CRUST: Making your own homemade sugar cookie dough is super easy but if you find yourself in a pinch for time or don’t like to bake you can also use store bought cookie dough.
- PISTACHIO MOUSSE FILLING: Making homemade whipped cream is sugar easy but if that’s not something you want to mess with substituting 2 (8 ounce) tubs of cool whip will work too. Just not as tasty.
How to Freeze Pistachio Mousse Pie
- The Slice Method: Go ahead and slice the cheesecake in serving pieces. Cut small pieces of wax or parchment paper (the size of the slice) and place between each slice, cover with a tight fitting lid. Take out pieces as you need them. Place in the refrigerator the night before to thaw.
- The Whole Cake Method: Place the whole cake in a container with a tight fitting lid. Place in the refrigerator the night before to thaw.

Pistachio Instant Pudding Mix
Did you know that the nuts found in a pistachio pudding mix are not pistachio nuts? They are almonds! So before adding your pistachio pudding mix to your pie, pour the mix into a mesh strainer and remove the almond pieces. THIS IS AN OPTIONAL STEP.
