White Chocolate Pistachio Cheesecake

In any office I’ve ever worked in, people go bonkers for free food. And not just delicious treats that I bring in; we’re talking leftover sandwiches from a lunch meeting, huge chunks of honeydew melon (you know that’s always the one section leftover from a fruit tray) or pizza ordered in for a team celebration. You should see the carnage when gift baskets start coming in over the holidays.

So you know it’s a bad sign when you bring in something that goes untouched. Sadly, that was the case when I brought this Pistachio White Chocolate Cheesecake to work about two years ago when we were recipe testing for Baked Occasions. A few people tried it, but it was unanimously decided that it was the least favourite recipe of the bunch. I had to agree.

Cheesecake Cracks

From what I remember, I didn’t think it was sweet enough, and it just wasn’t that cute. My cheesecake ended up with cracks on the top, so I just covered the whole thing with chopped pistachios to cover it up. I’m curious to see what my fellow bakers thought of this, make sure you check out there posts to read about their experiences.

Totally bummer! Hmm, I really liked it, as did my coworkers. However, mine was not pretty either (the topping was weird), so I covered it with white chocolate ganache. I wouldn’t use the green color again, and I might omit the white chocolate altogether, but I loved the pistachio layer. I also used a graham crust instead of chocolate wafers– sounded like a better combo to me. Did you do that trick that Matt suggested about putting a pan of water underneath the cake? I tried that and had zero cracks on top– I recommend it! Anyway, there are surely other, better cheesecakes in your future! :)

What a bummer, but now I’m not feeling as disappointed about not trying this cheesecake, so thanks! :)
