  1. Line a 20 x 10-cm (8 x 4-inch) loaf pan with plastic wrap, allowing the plastic to hang over the sides.
  2. In a bowl, soak the cranberries in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Pour the cream into a bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin. Let bloom for 5 minutes. Heat in the microwave oven until the gelatin melts, about 1 minute.
  4. In the food processor, pulse the cheese for 15 seconds. Add the hot cream and process until smooth.
  5. In a bowl, combine the cheese mixture, cranberries and pistachios. Pour into the loaf pan. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Using the plastic wrap, lift the nougat out of the pan and cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) slices. Place one slice on each plate. Drizzle with honey and serve with broiled pound cake triangles.
