Black Forest Berry Cheesecake with Pistachio Nuts

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings: 8

For the longest time, my closest friends have been getting food presents from me during Christmas. And for this year, I’m planning to give them my black forest berry fruit cheesecake with pistachio nuts.

Sounds complicated to make right? But it isn’t really.

Just follow my how to guide below and you too can start sending this mouth watering treat to your friends.

Ingredients

Melted butter (some to use for greasing)
200 grams of plain chocolate biscuits
125 grams of melted butter
200 grams of chopped, dark chocolate (if you have the one make for cooking, much better)
1 tbsp of boiling water
1 tbsp of gelatine
2 x 250 grams of cream cheese (make sure that the cheese is in room temperature before using)
1/3 cup or 70 grams of firmly packed brown sugar
Berry fruit, and crushed pistachio

    And now, let’s make some black forest cheesecake!

    Go get yourself a tart tin that measures around 10 x 34 cm. You then brush the inside of the tin with melted butter, making sure to get those edges coated.

    You then get your biscuits and throw them inside a food processor. Once the biscuits have reached a “fine” consistency, add your butter and wait until the two mixes together. Transfer the mixture to a pan and store in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

    As for your chocolate, go and fill a saucepan with simmering water. You then get your chocolates, place them in a heat proof bowl and without the heat proof bowl touching the water, and continuously stir your chocolate until it melts.

    Next is to put water into a heatproof glass. Sprinkle gelatine into the glass and stir until it dissolves.

    Now for the cheese cake itself!

    Using an electric beater put your brown sugar and cream cheese in a bowl and beat thoroughly until it reaches a smooth consistency. When that happens, you can then add your gelatine and melted chocolate. Beat them all together till they mix. You then leave the mixture to cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

    Note: As for the berries, I like to eat mine in room temperature. So if you also want it chilled, just garnish them on top of your cheesecake mixture before putting it inside the fridge.

    And the last step is to get the cheese cake from the fridge and sprinkle it with crushed pistachio nuts before serving.

    My mother used to make a great cheesecake many years ago, I think I may need to give this one a try. The use of berries, crushed pistachio, and dark chocolate seems like a great combination.

    Nicky said: Awesome Cheese Grater

    I am in love with this cheese grater, it works wonderfully grating blocks of cheese and I love how it sits right on top of the container so it shreds right into the plasticware. Also it comes with a lid container so you can easily store any unused cheese. I will shred extra cheese and leave it in my fridge, knowing i will use it in the next few days. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheese grater

    I got these at a discounted rate back in May 2017 as my previous ones the handles broke off, the info that came with this set said the items could withstand heat as i usually leave mine on top of the stove on a spoon rest.. Never seen either one melt, they have withstood being dropped and washed many times over and neither one has peeled or cracked.. I definitely made a good purchase and love my Chef Remi spatula's ..

    Debbie said: Amazing hard wearing utensil

    Brilliant piece of kit for anyone who loves to grill, this is a heavy hard wearing grill cleaner that can stand up to the messiest of grill. We've not only used it for cleaning the grill on the BBQ but also on the oven shelves as the huge head space makes t so easy to get into all the hard to clean places. Would highly recommend.

    Paula Pyzia said: Meat thermometer

    i got this product at a discounted rate some time ago as i was fed up in trying to figure out how cooked a turkey or chicken was after it being in the oven for the required amount of time.. so i got this meat thermometer basically for my poultry cooking.. definitely worked out great.. and its easy to wash. the batteries still work from the day i got it.. havent had any issues with it at all

    Christina Chaney said: No More Guessing

    Before purchasing this thermometer, I had to guess if a cut of meat was safely cooked- usually by cutting into the middle and deciding by how it looked if it was done. No more! This thermometer takes the guess work out of it, is easy to use and easy to read!
