  1. In a blender, pulse the biscuits with 50g pistachios until they resemble coarse sand. If you don't have a blender, add the biscuits to a sandwich bag and crush with a rolling pin. Stir in the melted butter and mix well. Spoon the mixture into a 23cm fluted tart tin, using the back of the spoon to spread it evenly and up the sides, pressing down to compress. Pop in the fridge for 20 mins to set.
  2. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese with the yogurt, honey, lemon juice, vanilla extract and caster sugar. Put 2 tbsp hot water a small bowl and sprinkle over the gelatine; stir well with a fork until it is dissolved. Add the gelatine mixture to the cream cheese and yogurt mix, stirring well to incorporate. Pour the filling into the cheesecake shell so that it is evenly covered. Return to the fridge for 3-4 hrs until set.
  3. To serve, remove the cheesecake from the tin. Sprinkle the remaining pistachios around the edge and drizzle with honey.
