Ingredients

  • 4 digestive cookies
  • 4 oatmeal cookie
  • 1/4 cup hulled pistachio nut
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter melted
Filling:
  • 1 pkg cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
Topping:
  • 12 orange segments
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachio nut

Method

In food processor, pulse cookies with pistachios until in coarse crumbs; pulse in butter. Press over bottoms of twelve 4-oz (125 mL) mini-cheesecake cups. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden at edges and firm to the touch, about 8 minutes. Let cool on rack.

Filling: Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy; beat in sour cream, honey and orange rind. Beat in egg and flour. Spoon about 2 tbsp (25 mL) filling over each base.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until edges are set but centres still jiggle slightly, about 12 minutes. Let cool on rack. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Topping: Top each with orange segment; sprinkle with pistachios.
