Pistachio Cheesecake

I gifted myself a Kitchen Aid mixer for Eid this year during Amazon Prime Day – the sale everyone wasn’t very happy about. I know, a food blogger without a Kitchen Aid, how did I even survive? Can you imagine what it was like mixing everything by hand! It was rough.

The Kitchen Aid is a game changer.

If you don’t have one, I want you to know from personal experience that you are only making more work on yourself. I cannot tell you how much more satisfaction I got from watching the mixer do all the work. Let me reiterate – Game Changer.

Now that I have my Kitchen Aid, there are endless dessert possibilities. And with my love for pistachio-flavored-pretty-much-everything, the mixer will prove well worth the investment.

  1. Question: Do you use instant or regular pudding mix? I’m assuming the topping is chopped pistachios. When do you add them?

    • The one that I use is the Jello brand. The box says it’s instant mix. Hope that helps! Let me know how it turns out.
