Prep: Line and lightly grease a 6-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 350°F.

    • Transfer the filo to a bowl and let it cool for 15 minutes.
    • Mix in the pistachio butter until well combined.
    • Press this mixture onto the cooled brownie base.

    Make the Ganache:

    • Heat the cream until it begins to boil. Remove from heat and add the chocolate. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth.
    • Pour the ganache over the pistachio layer.

    Finish and Enjoy:

    • Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the ganache.
