Ingredients

  • 1 cup roasted pistachios
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup plain full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Juice from 1 lemon

Method

Step 1

For the pistachio crust: Blend the pistachios, granulated sugar and salt in a food processor until finely ground. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture clumps together. Distribute the mixture among 6 to 8 serving glasses, then use a muddler or the back of a spoon to pack it down firmly. Set aside while you make the filling.

Step 2

For the cheesecake: Beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment on high speed until smooth. Beat in the vanilla, almond extract and salt, then add the yogurt. Beat on high until combined and smooth, a few seconds. Add the heavy cream and beat on high until the mixture holds stiff peaks, about another minute. Distribute the mixture among the serving glasses, then chill for 1 hour or up to overnight. 

Step 3

For the raspberries: Add 1 cup raspberries to a medium bowl along with the granulated sugar and lemon juice. Muddle slightly with the back of a wooden spoon or muddler, then add the remaining raspberries and mix to combine. Allow to sit for 30 minutes for a juicy sauce or serve immediately. Spoon 2 tablespoons over each cheesecake and serve.
