Ingredients
 
 

For the Pistachio Crust

  • 8 ounces shelled pistachios (unsalted), roasted
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the Chocolate Filling

Garnish

  • 3 tablespoons shelled pistachios, roasted (salted okay)
  • 2 teaspoons honey

Instructions
 

For the Pistachio Crust

  • Set the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Make and shape the crust. Add the pistachios to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment and blend until they're coarsly ground. Pour the ground nuts into a mixing bowl, add the sugar, melted butter and salt, and stir to blend. Then press this into the bottom of a 10 inch tart shell. (A flat-bottomed metal spatula will be helpful to smooth the top.)
  • Bake. Place the tart shell on a baking sheet and into the preheated 375°F oven. Bake just until the edges begin to turn golden, about 10 minutes. Remove, set aside, and let it cool at room temperature.

For the Chocolate Filling

  • Melt the chocolate. Add the chopped chocolate to the top of a double boiler to melt it. Once it's melted, set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Add the yogurt. Once the chocolate is room temperature, add the yogurt and mix until the mixture is completely smooth.

Assemble, Garnish and Serve

  • Pour the filling into the cooled tart shell and smooth out the top with a small off-set spatula. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. About 10 minutes before serving, remove the tart from the refrigerator. Mix the 3 tablespoons of Garnish pistachios with the honey and drop these onto the top of the tart. Serve. (You can also add gold sprinkles if desried.)
