Biscoff No Bake Cheesecake

I think it’s fair to say I am not the best traveler in the world. Big airports give me anxiety. I’m claustrophobic, so the bathrooms on planes are out of the question. And sitting so close to random people in a confined space? Makes me itchy, twitchy, and miserable. Especially when your row mate eats a Caesar salad for dinner and then falls asleep with their mouth agape 6 inches from your face.

It was sort of good that the fellow passed out, though. I was tired of trying to covertly read 50 Shades of Gray on my iPad without him glancing over and catching a glimpse of the naughty words. That book is something else – and that’s the last of my words on that particular subject.

Despite my utter disdain for traveling, my recent trip to Kansas City with Gold Medal Flour did have some amazing positives: fantastic people, incredible food, and I got to tour a factory and get up close and personal with a combine. More on that experience will come later this month. Just know: it was pretty awesome.

While intermittently holding my breath and attempting to breath through my mouth instead of my nose due to said sleeping man, I decided to distract myself with 15 minutes of free internet and Biscoff Cookies – thank you, Delta. I always forget how delightful these crisp, caramelly cookies are. As I munched away, happily distracted from Caesar-breath, the idea for No Bake Biscoff Cheesecakes was born.

Imagine a crisp, cookie crumb foundation topped with a deadly combination of Biscoff Spread, cream cheese and Cool Whip. While it’s an incredible simple dessert to prepare, any crowd you serve it to is going to be wowed by your creativity and Biscoff genius.

The fact that this Biscoff cheesecake isn’t baked makes it perfect for Summer. I don’t know about where you are, but it’s seven shades of Hades here in Ohio today, and just the thought of turning on my oven made me sweat a little. Cold, creamy and full of cinnamon – that is what I’m all about with this cheesecake.

Biscoff No Bake Cheesecake

June 22nd, 2012

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

For the Crust

12 Biscoff cookies, crushed into crumbs
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup Biscoff Spread
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed

For the Garnish

whipped topping, optional
Biscoff cookie crumbs, optional

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl, stir together the Biscoff cookie crumbs and melted butter. Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.

2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and Biscoff Spread on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and mix to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended and no streaks remain.

3. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

4. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping and Biscoff cookie crumbs.

Notes:

- I have not tried this recipe using fresh whipped cream, so I cannot attest to the results.

- The small glass bowls were purchased from Pier 1. Spoons are from Ikea.

- If you've never seen Biscoff Cookies or Spread, head over to their site and find a retailer near you that stocks the items.

A combination of some of my favorite foods. I have a weakness for cheesecake… and Biscoff. Danger!

I love getting those delicious cookies on Delta flights too! These little cheesecakes look delicious, and I love that they are no-bake since it is also a million degrees here in upstate NY.

I’ve never heard of Biscoff cookies or the spread, but if it’s cinnamon, I’m all over it! Apparently, Kroger stores carry both. This sounds really yummy and refreshing for summer.

If I were to make this in a glass dish, would I use an 8 X 8 or a 9 X 13?

Melanie-
I would definitely use an 8×8 square pan or a pie plate. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, they do not have a retailers in Europe, so nothing of it :(

PS. I have just found the information that they are supposed to be exactly like Speculaas, but I ate different kind of Speculaas and they’re nothing like Biscoff cookies. They just don’t’ taste the same – Biscoff is much more sweet, have rich caramel-y taste while Speculoos have a distinctive earthy, spicy taste, foremost of cinnamon and ginger. And while I can find Speculaas in supermarkets, I’ve seen Lotus only in cafes.

Silvia November 22, 2013 at 11:28 pm

No, the cookies are more like Bastogne cookies then Speculaas. LU makes them and you should be able to find them in supermarkets in Europe.

I have a batch made with fresh whipped cream in my fridge right now. Wow! I had to stop myself from just sticking my head into the mixing bowl! So for those of you that don’t want to use/can’t find cool whip, no worries!

I love all things Biscoff and then you have to make this combination look adorable too? A real winner.

I have zero interest in the book Jamie but I have to check out this twitter account every day. @50ShedsofGrey. Really makes me laugh; it’s seriously one of the best parody accounts I’ve ever seen.

I would recommend checking your local markets for Speculoos Spread, it’s the same thing and just as delicious.

I was inducted into Camp Cookie Butter a short two weeks ago, and was actually just on my way to the kitchen to make a homemade batch when I came across your blog! Thanks for sharing this little gem–I recently made cookie butter swirl ice cream bon-bons that I couldn’t stop eating, so this is definitely the next item on my to-make desserts list.

Hi! I’ve been addicted to the biscoff biscuits for years after a trip to Europe but oddly I can’t find the spread ANYWHERE in the UK :(
Your cheesecakes look fantastic, so I was wondering if I would be able to make my own paste?
I haven’t tasted their spread before so I can’t judge as to what’s in it. Any help would be great :D
Also we don’t have whipped topping here so if i can make the paste I’ll be making the cheesecake with whipped cream and will let you know how it goes :)

Kellie January 6, 2013 at 3:06 pm

I pinned this months ago, but just finally got around to making it. It was wonderful!!! Took me a few trips to different stores to find the cookies and spread, but now that I know where to go I won’t have that problem anymore. It was easy to make, looks lovely, and received highest reviews from everyone at the table today. Thank you!

Just a quick question… About how big are the small glass bowls that you used, in ounces? I’m just trying to calculate how many this would make in either 4oz or 8 oz jars. Thanks!

Reply

Jamie September 13, 2013 at 7:16 pm

Hi Debbie,
These jars are closer to 4 oz. They’re from Pier 1.

That is the first I have ever heard of Biscoff! I’m going to have to see if I can find it at the local Whole Foods. I love no bake cheesecakes so I’ll give this one a try! Thanks! -Teesa

Jamie August 19, 2013 at 10:29 am

Teesa,

It’s amazing, you need to find some! They sell it at most grocery stores so Whole Foods will probably have it or something like it. Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!

Question – How long will these hold in the fridge if I made them ahead? I know that regular whipped cream would “fall”, but I know Cool Whip is a bit different…

Reply

Jamie September 19, 2013 at 1:19 pm

Kristen-
I would make them the day I was serving them – they’ll definitely be less stable if made with real whipped cream. I hope this helps.

Kristen September 19, 2013 at 2:15 pm

Thanks Jamie! Making these for a party – flavors say Fall to me!

How long and can I even use muffin tins to bake these in?

Reply

Jamie January 10, 2014 at 10:13 pm

Arielle, these cheesecakes are no-bake. You do not put them in the oven. I would not put them in a muffin tin.
- Jamie

Reply

Kelly November 29, 2013 at 5:29 pm

Two questions:
1. Do you think I could make this a day or two ahead? And just add the Cool Whip & cookie garnish before serving?
2. Do you think it would be okay with Trader Joe’s cookie butter (instead of Biscoff spread)? Or Nutella?

Thanks! Looks yummy!

Reply

Jamie January 10, 2014 at 4:02 pm

Kelly, I think you can make it ahead, and Trader Joe’s cookie butter or nutella would both work fine!

Gina February 27, 2014 at 1:49 pm

I love this recipe already! The only thing I’m not too keen on is the cool whip…can I use whipped cream instead? Or do you have any suggestions as to what I can replace the cool whip with? Thanks and love your blog!!

Hi,

I am wanting to make this for a 16th birthday party,
but the theme is colorful! so I was wondering if this recipe yo ucould put food dye in the cream cheese? and maybe leave out the biscoff spread (which i dont think they sell in australia anyway)… what do you think? and maybe this could be made with a different type of biscuit? I will be making everything from scratch as well….

- Darcy

Reply

Jamie Lothridge May 5, 2014 at 6:15 pm

Darcy,

Food dye should be fine in the filling. I believe you do have Biscoff spread, it’s just called something else – Speculoos. It’s made with ginger cookies, so you could potentially try grinding those up with some oil to make your own cookie butter. I believe there are internet tutorials.

Rkia June 22, 2014 at 7:54 am

It sounds sooo yummy, here in the Netherlands we do have biscoff cookies, but here they call them Lotus Speculoos cookies and spread. But we do not have cool whip! Can I substitute it with regular whipping cream?

Reply

Jamie June 26, 2014 at 11:02 pm

Hi Rkia, Whipped cream would not work, but there’s a recipe for homemade cool whip here: http://www.somethingswanky.com/homemade-cool-whip/

Hi I am from Puerto Rico we don’t have biscoff cookies or spread can I use something else like peanut butter or nuttela maybe?

Reply

Jamie August 12, 2014 at 10:26 am

Peanut Butter or Nutella would work fine. Thanks for stopping by.

Tracie Keeling July 16, 2014 at 1:53 pm

We don’t get frozen whipped topping over here – and what is Biscoff? Saying that we probably don’t get that either! I should stop reading US/Canada based blogs because a lot of the time the recipes call for something we don’t get in the UK or if we do its horrifically expensive! :-( x

Reply

Jamie August 12, 2014 at 10:25 am

You can substitute sweetened whipped cream for the whipped topping. Biscoff is cookie butter similar to peanut butter, which can be substituted. Thanks for stopping by.

JenniferMC August 14, 2014 at 6:08 am

Made this yesterday for a going-away lunch I held for a friend–TOTAL HIT! I increased the cream cheese by 1/3 cup to taste more like cheesecake, and used some leftover Oreo cookie crumbs for the crust. Let’s just say, I should have made more–the only taste I got was right before I piped it into the cups =(

Jamie August 14, 2014 at 9:21 am

So glad the recipe was such a hit for your special lunch. Thanks for stopping by.
