Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray, set aside. In a large bowl add the butter, sugar, vanilla, and pistachio butter. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix until combined and smooth.
Add in the flour a little at a time until well mixed in. Add in the crushed pistachios and mix in. Using slightly wet hands, press the crust into the pan in an even layer. Dock the crust all over with a fork. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown, let cool completely.
Pistachio Cream Cheese Layer
While the crust is cooling, make the filling layer by placing the cream cheese in a large bowl and with a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip until smooth with no lumps, about 1 minute. Add in the pudding mix and whip to combine. Add the heavy cream in two batches, mixing on low speed until combined. Smooth this mixture on top of the crust.
Whipped Cream Topping
In a large bowl with a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the heavy cream along with the vanilla and powdered sugar over medium speed until medium peaks form. Spread this on top of the pudding mixture. Top with the crushed pistachios. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set. Cut, serve, enjoy!
