The Best Biscoff Cheesecake

For those who don’t know what Biscoff is, it is a spread that is made of ground up Biscoff cookies. While it isn’t the kind of spread you’d have on your toast, it’s perfect for desserts or drizzled over ice cream.

Now, this Biscoff cheesecake may look incredibly fancy but I promise you, it is so easy to make and needs just 6 ingredients!

No eggs and no dairy are needed, but you’d never tell. The texture of the cheesecake is ultra smooth and silky, which is almost mousse like. The cheesecake is sweet and full of cookie butter flavor, that you won’t stop at one slice!

Ingredients needed

This recipe needs just 6 ingredients to make, and if you’ve made any of my vegan recipes before, you probably have everything on hand! If not, you can find these at your local grocery store. Here is what you’ll need: 

For the base

  • Biscoff cookies. Crushed up Biscoff cookies to make a crust similar to a graham cracker crust. 
  • Butter OR vegan butter. Melted and unsalted. If you use vegan butter, choose ones from a block, not a spread/tub.  

For the filling

  • Cream cheese. Softened to room temperature. 
  • Superfine sugar. Also known as caster sugar. This is not the same as powdered sugar, so do not substitute this for it. 
  • Biscoff spread. A must for a Biscoff cheesecake! Use the smooth variety, not the crunchy one. 
  • Double cream. Also known as heavy cream or thickened cream. 

Frosting

  • Biscoff spread. Optional, but I love adding a layer of melted Biscoff over the cheesecake. 

How do you make a lotus Biscoff cheesecake?

Simple is an understatement for this biscoff cheesecake recipe. 

It follows a simple 3-step process you could literally make in your sleep. I like to use a spring-form pan because it makes the removal of the cheesecake so much easier.

Ready to whip one up now? 

Step 1- Make the crust

Start by preparing the cookie crust. In a mixing bowl, combine your crushed cookies with the melted butter and mix until combined. Transfer the cookie base into an 8-inch spring-form cake pan and refrigerate.

Step 2- Make the filling

Next, prepare the cheesecake filling. In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and superfine sugar and beat until creamy. Add the Biscoff spread and beat until smooth. Add the double cream and beat until thick and glossy. 

Step 3- Assemble the cheesecake

Now, transfer the cheesecake filling into the pan and spread out in an even layer. Cover the cheesecake and refrigerate it overnight. 

The next morning, melt extra Biscoff and spread over the top of the firm cheesecake. Sprinkle extra crushed cookies and refrigerate for another hour, to firm up.

Tips for success

  • If you choose to make this vegan, use good quality vegan cream cheese and vegan butter, both of them preferably from a block. The block varieties contain less/no fillers or added liquid and yield a smoother filling. 
  • For an even more intense Biscoff filling, fold through 1/2 cup crushed cookies. 
  • When preparing the cheesecake filling, be sure that the mixture is stable and fluffy, otherwise, the cheesecake won’t set properly.

  1. Hi, your picture of biscoff cheesecake looks absolutely stunning, and really stood out among the others! I was wondering if I could use diary butter and cream? If I do would the quantities of the other ingredients remain the same? Also is the base crunchy or softer? I like a crunchier base. Thank you so much in advance.

  2. 5 stars
    Turned out amazing. I did not whip the cream separately and it still set fine, although I beat the filling until I saw soft peaks. I used salted butter in the crust and ended up adding some sweetened condensed milk to the filling. Next time I would make the crust thicker as it was the best part. I also used a 9″ pan. I let it set for about 18 hours in the fridge and the consistency was perfect.
