Biscoff cookies are a type of spiced shortbread cookie known to many as speculoos cookies. The Lotus brand’s speculoos cookie or biscuit is made with cinnamon and gets its flavor from the way they process their sugar into caramelized deliciousness.

You can get this in many cookie forms, like chocolate-covered cookies, sandwich cookies, or the original version. However, this recipe uses the original.

You have most likely been offered these wonderful little cookies when flying on an airplane. Paired with tangy cheesecake and a cookie crust, you just can’t beat this variation. Honestly, the most difficult part of making their recipe is waiting 5 to 6 hours while it chills!

If you are one of my Biscoff Cookie lovers, we have you covered. Try these Biscoff Cookie Butter Cheesecake Bars, Biscoff Cookie Butter Latte, and No-Churn Biscoff Ice Cream.

Ingredient Notes

  • Lotus Biscoff Cookies | Crushed cookies are used in all layers of this cheesecake recipe.
  • Brown Sugar | Brown Sugar is used in the crust and in the cheesecake batter.
  • Butter | Unsalted, melted butter is what I use for this recipe.
  • Salt | Salt is commonly used in baking to enhance and balance the flavors.
  • Cream Cheese |  Use room temperature full-fat cream cheese. You will need 4 oz. blocks.
  • Sugar | Granulated sugar is in the filling to add sweet goodness.
  • Cornstarch | Use cornstarch to thicken and set the cheesecake filling.
  • Sour Cream | Sour cream adds the tangy taste a cheesecake needs.
  • Biscoff Cookie Butter | Lotus Biscoff spread is a peanut butter delight for your cheesecake.
  • Vanilla Extract | Add in the vanilla for that nutty vanilla flavor.
  • Eggs | Use large eggs added one at a time to create a fluffy texture.

Toppings to Decorate

  • Biscoff Cookie Butter | The top of the cheesecake is generously covered in this cookie butter.
  • Biscoff Cookies | Use pulverized cookie crumbs and whole cookies too! 
  • Whipped Cream | Use Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream made with heavy cream.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Greek Yogurt can be used instead of sour cream if desired.
  • Trade the cookie butter for Nutella, peanut butter, or almond butter.
  • Graham Crackers can be used for the Biscoff biscuit base in a pinch. But the iconic Speculoos cookies yield the best result.

How to Bake Biscoff Cheesecake 

Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and full recipe instructions!

Step 1 | Prep

Preheat the oven to 350°F and add a roasting pan or other large pan to the lower section of the oven to make a hot water bath. Place enough hot water in the pan that it will rise to 2 inches around the cheesecake springform pan. Line the springform pan with parchment paper or coat it with cooking spray.

To prevent water from leaking into the springform pan, place a slow cooker liner or oven-roasting bag around it. Alternatively, using 18-inch heavy-duty aluminum foil, wrap the outside of the springform pan with four layers of foil.

Pulse the Biscoff Cookies in a food processor until they are fine crumbs, or smash them inside a sealed plastic bag. 

Place the crumbs in a large mixing bowl and add the brown sugar, melted butter, and salt. Blend the crust ingredients until combined. Use an electric stand mixer or a hand mixer for a smoother mixture.

Pour the crumb mixture into the prepared bottom of the springform pan. With the back of a spoon, press the crust evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan as far as you desire the crust to rise. Be careful to get an even layer of crust. 

It’s best to finish the crust with the bottom of a measuring cup or glass to get an even, hard-packed crust and keep buildup out of the corner.

Bake crust for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the crust to cool completely.

Step 3 | Creamy Biscoff Cheesecake Filling

First, put the softened cream cheese in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed with the whisk attachment for a few minutes until creamy. Next, add the brown sugar, sugar, cornstarch, and salt, and beat until the ingredients are all mixed in, scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Cream cheese with brown and granulated sugar added and blended.

Then, add in the sour cream (or Greek yogurt), Biscoff cookie butter, and vanilla extract, and beat until blended, scraping down the bowl so the cream cheese doesn’t clump.

Add the eggs, one at a time, to the cream cheese mixture on slow speed, scraping down the bowl with a rubber spatula as you go. Do not overmix.

Step 4 | Pour & Bake

Pour the creamy cheesecake mixture into the baked crunchy Biscoff cookie crust. Spread evenly.

Place the cheesecake in the water bath in the oven, being careful not to touch the very hot water. Bake for approx. 60-70 minutes (don’t open the oven door to check on it during baking). 

The cheesecake will be done when the center is still a little jiggly when you gently shake the pan, while the outer edges seem firm.

When it’s finished baking, turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside the oven for an hour, making a small opening in the oven door by placing a wooden spoon in it. This slow cool-down process reduces the chances of cracking the surface of the cheesecake.

Take the cheesecake out of the oven and run a knife around the edge to release it from the sides of the pan as it cools and shrinks (this is so it doesn’t crack). 

Let it cool completely. Carefully remove the springform pan, then put it in the fridge for at least 5 hours (overnight is best).

Step 5 | Decorate the top of the Cheesecake

Melt the Biscoff cookie butter in the microwave for a few seconds until runny, and give it a good stir.

Then pour it over the cheesecake and spread with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. It works best if you place the cake on a lazy Suzan and turn it while spreading it from the center outward, making a groove.

Tips

  • Finish the crust with the bottom of a measuring cup or glass to get an even, hard-packed crust and keep buildup out of the corner.
  • Be careful not to overmix the batter.
  • Don’t open the oven door to check on it during baking.
  • Leave the cheesecake in the oven for a few hours to slow the cool-down process, which reduces the chances of cracking its surface.
  • Chilled cheesecake is best! Be sure to allow plenty of time to chill out in the fridge.
