I discovered one of Greece’s premiere pistachio farmers in Aegina, home to Greece’s most famous pistachios, and have been impressed ever since with the range of his pistachio products. One of my favorites, and the inspiration for this Greek recipe, is a sweet pistachio butter that has an intense nutty flavor like nothing I’ve ever tasted. I use it here to create this yummy Greek cheesecake and garnish it with both pistachios and another Greek island specialty, candied kumquats from Corfu. The result is totally over the top a dessert that is great on festive tables and makes the perfect end to a Thanksgiving feast. You can enjoy it of course, any day of the year! You can also make this with peanut butter or other nut butters. To find the pistachios, pistachio butter and kumquats, go to my online shop, here.
