  • Step 1/6

    • 113⅓ g cream cheese
    • 16⅔ g sugar
    • tsp salt
    • oven
    • stand mixer with whisk
    • rubber spatula

    Preheat the oven to 120°C/250°F. Mix the cream cheese in a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until fluffy, or approx. 4 min. Stop the mixer, scrape down the sides, and return the mixer to low speed. Slowly pour in the sugar and salt and mix on low speed until combined.

  • Step 2/6

    • 13⅓ ml water
    • tsp cornstarch
    • 12½ g sour cream
    • 12½ g pistachio paste
    • tsp vanilla extract
    • whisk
    • small bowl

    Meanwhile, whisk half of the water and the cornstarch together in a small bowl. Add the sour cream and pistachio paste into the cornstarch-water mixture, and whisk until incorporated. Add the vanilla extract and rest of the water.

  • Step 3/6

    • rubber spatula

    Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides. Over low speed add the pistachio-sourcream-water mixture. Gradually raise the speed to medium-high and mix until fully incorporated.

  • Step 4/6

    • ½ eggs
    • egg yolks
    • tsp matcha powder

    Slowly turn the mixer to low speed and add the eggs and yolks, one at a time, until each is incorporated. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides, then add some of the matcha powder and mix on medium speed one more time.

  • Step 5/6

    • baking sheet
    • baking dish
    • springform pan

    Place springform pan in a baking dish and add boiling water halfway up the cake tin. Make sure there is no water in the cake tin, and add the cheesecake mixture. Carefully transfer to the oven and bake for approx. 50 min., or until it is set, but a little jiggly.

  • Step 6/6

    • 5 g confectioner's sugar
    • tsp matcha powder
    • fine sieve
    • plastic wrap

    Remove the cheesecake from the baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hrs. and up to 2 days. Just before serving, dust the cheesecake with mixed confectioner’s sugar and matcha powder. Cut out slices. Enjoy!
