What is Biscoff?

Biscoff is made by a brand called Lotus Biscoff. You may have first had them on a Delta flight and wondered how to get them outside of taking a lot of trips on Delta. They actually were pretty hard to find in stores until recently when Lotus Biscoff seemingly went viral. Lotus Biscoff makes their famous cookies and a cookie butter spread. The Lotus Biscoff cookies are a crunchy cookie, almost biscuit-like, and they have a very distinctive toasted caramel, butterscotch flavor. The texture is like a gingersnap cookie but there’s no ginger flavor. It’s more cinnamon and nutmeg and a hint of butterscotch.

The cookie butter spread (Biscoff spread) is a thick spread like Nutella but with the same flavors as Biscoff, just in a spread form. Both these ingredients are used in this Biscoff Cheesecake. Trader Joe’s has a dupe and they call it their speculoos cookie butter spread.

Biscoff Cheesecake Recipe Tips

We want to make sure your Biscoff cheesecake is the very best it can be so here are several tips and tricks that will help you achieve a successful cheesecake bake!

  • Make sure ingredients are room temperature. This ensures that the filling is easily beaten and mixed together with no lumps.
  • Invest in a springform baking pan. This is the easiest way to cleanly release your cheesecake once it’s done baking.
  • Wrap foil around the baking dish. This helps keeps an even baking temperature for the pan so it can bake evenly and reduce your chances of the cheesecake cracking.
  • Use a water bath. This helps create steam and helps the cheesecake cook evenly and not crack in the center.
  • Bake the cheesecake until the edges are set and the center is jiggly. You don’t want to bake the cheesecake until it is completely set. This will cause the center to crack. When you remove the cheesecake from the oven when the center is still jiggly, the cheesecake will still cook for a little bit afterwards from the residual heat.
  • Allow the cheesecake to cool completely. You don’t want to slice into the cheesecake when it’s still warm. It’ll be a mess!
  • Run a knife around the edge to release. If you’re having trouble releasing the cheesecake from the baking pan, it is suggested to first run a sharp paring knife around the edge of the cheesecake and the pan to ensure it will be a clean release.

FAQs

What if I don’t have a springform pan?

If you don’t have a springform pan, you can bake this in a regular cake pan but make sure the height is at least 3 inches tall and making sure you grease it well.

I can’t find Biscoff cookies or the Biscoff spread, what do I do?

If you can’t find the Biscoff spread, try looking for “cookie butter spread” or “speculoos spread.” For the cookies, you could try cinnamon graham crackers, but the flavor of Biscoff is so unique that it honestly won’t be an exact replica.

Why did my cheesecake crack?

Cheesecakes are tricky and there could be several reasons why this happened.
1. It’s overcooked and you took it out of the oven too late.
2. It cooled too quickly and it didn’t have enough time to set.
3. The pan wasn’t properly greased so as it baked, it couldn’t release itself from the sides so it tugged on the center.
4. The baking temperature fluctuated a bit too much. Using a water bath and wrapping the pan in foil will help with this.

Storage Instructions

Allow cheesecake to cool completely and slice them into individual servings. You can either keep it on the springform pan and wrap the pan tightly with foil and refrigerate for up to 5 days or you can put the slices in a large container with a lid.

To freeze: individually wrap each cheesecake slice with plastic wrap then tightly with foil and freeze for up to 3 months.

  • Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from oven. Once cooled, use some cooking spray on a paper towel to lightly grease the sides of the pan to prevent sticking before adding the filling. Wrap the bottom of the pan and the sides with 2 layers of aluminum foil to prevent water from getting into the cheesecake.
  • To make the batter, add the cream cheese to a large bowl and use a hand mixer/stand mixer on medium speed to beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy.

  • Add eggs one at a time and beat until just mixed.

  • Carefully place in the oven and bake for 70-80 minutes. The cheesecake should be set around the edges and slightly jiggly in the middle.
