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

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


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


  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.


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

    Glad to hear you enjoyed KC! I saw you brought back some Oklahoma Joe’s with you – that is our favorite BBQ place. These cheesecakes are so out of this world, Jamie. Love, love, love Biscoff!


  2. Maria — June 22, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    I am still mad at Josh for giving away my Biscoff cookies on our flight:) He will have to make me your cheesecake to redeem himself…ha! It was great to see you!


  3. These are amazing! I love no bake cheesecakes like this and who doesn’t love Biscoff?!!


  4. I seriously can’t wait to make these. Thanks for the excuse to buy more Biscoff cookies!


  5. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray — June 22, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    Genius. Pure and utter sweet genius.

    P.S. My boyfriend gives me his Biscoff cookies when we fly Delta because he knows I love them so much. ;)


  6. Oh my gosh, your cheesecake looks out of this world!!


  7. Jackie @ La Casa de Sweets — June 22, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Jamie, I seriously need you to stop making such amazing and gorgeous things. I’m in awe. Constantly.


  8. Joy B — June 22, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    Loved your post! LOL! I can just imagine. ;) I liked this on facebook and have pinned it, too. Gotta share great recipes!!!


  9. Jessica@AKitchenAddiction — June 22, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    This is incredible!! Love biscoff and love the fact that this is no-bake!


  10. Chelsea — June 22, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    These look delish! I am loving all things in individual servings right now!


  11. Averie @ Averie Cooks — June 22, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    I made no bake cheesecakes last week with Cool Whip and Rolo (and I added some PB, too!) I bet with Biscoff these are over the top amazing. Must try!


  12. Brilliant, just brilliant! Little miny biscoff no-bake cheesecakes. My melting self is loving this recipe as I currently am suffering in 100 degree Baltimore temps! :)


  13. Karrie at Electra Films — June 22, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Learning a lot from this site – I always Google your ingredients!!


  14. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes — June 22, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    Biscoff is my favorite!!!!


  15. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious — June 22, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    This is amazing! You always come up with the best kind of jar foods. I love it!


  16. Becca - Cookie Jar Treats — June 22, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    I’m so sorry you didn’t have a good flight. Some of the nicest people I meet in airports/airplanes. But that ceaser breath would disturb me too :S Yeck.

    These little cheesecakes look great! I love Delta for their free snacks (especially the peanuts I love peanuts!!!!) But the biscoff cookies are great too :)


  17. Carla @ Carla's Confections — June 22, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Oh these look heavenly! I need to get myself back to the USA so I can try this biscoff goodness! I am itching to try it! And then make this cheesecake with it :) looks amazing! PS thank you again for all the help Jamie!!!!


  18. Pat — June 22, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    I can’t wait to try this! I’m glad you shared that you purchased the dishes at Pier 1 ~ I suspected it and you were nice enough to confirm. :-) I love, love individual desserts these days and yes, NOT having to use the oven. It’s hotter than Hades here and we are forecast our first triple digits for this summer. I cannot tell you how much I hate Texas summers!

    Glad you had a great trip and, like you, I’m claustrophobic too. The worst seat is the middle, in my opinion, although I dislike the window seats too. Give me an aisle and I feel like I have a getaway. LOL



  19. Nancy L — June 22, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    I LOVE Biscoff! I’m so happy that some stores are carrying them now, so I don’t have to order them through the internet! This no bake cheesecake looks fantastic!


  20. Cookbook Queen — June 22, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    Not a fan of flying either. On my flight from BlogHer, I sat next to a woman who had been rerouted.

    And wanted to talk about it during the ENTIRE. FLIGHT.

    Yay me….not.

    Love these little cheesecakes…they’re so pretty and yummy looking!!


  21. Linda Garbarino — June 22, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    What are Biscoff cookies? Can I use something else?


    • Jamie — June 24, 2012 at 4:01 pm

      Here is a link that will tell you which store carry the cookies and spread in your area!

  22. Ann P. — June 22, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    oooh baby, biscoff cheesecake is definitely the ultimate dessert!


  23. Jill — June 22, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Okay, I sound like a complete foreigner and idiot, but I don’t know what Biscoff spread is! :-( Is it by the peanut butter?


    • ArndtYouErin — June 23, 2012 at 12:53 am

      Don’t feel bad, I had to look it up too. “Biscoff Spread is a sweet creamy spread made with Biscoff cookies (57%). Enjoy it just like a chocolate spread or peanut butter” ( Now I just have to figure out where to find this stuff. World Market maybe?

    • Joycie K — June 23, 2012 at 11:06 am

      World Market is the only store in my area that has Biscoff spread. It’s delicious!

    • Melanie — June 28, 2012 at 11:09 am

      I think I saw Biscoff Spread in a flyer for The Fresh Market.

  24. Shelley — June 22, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Oh I love cheesecake and Biscoff oh my, I have to try this recipe soon! Sounds like you had a great time with the exception of said sleeping man.


  25. ButterYum — June 22, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Absolutely delectable – I’m a band new biscoff fan. As a matter of fact, I just posted “biscoffee cake” yesterday. I’d love it if you stop by for a look.


  26. chris — June 22, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Can you tell me what are Biscoff cookies and is there something comparable? I haven’t seen those around Cleveland.


    • Jamie — June 24, 2012 at 4:01 pm

      I am from Ohio too! Here is a link that will tell you which store carry the cookies and spread in your area. Have a great day.

  27. Amy — June 22, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Someone was just telling me about this spread yesterday! My kids LOVE those cookies. I gotta find that spread and give this cheesecake a whirl. Thanks for always inspiring.


  28. ThisBakerGirlBlogs — June 23, 2012 at 4:34 am

    So easy yet still pretty incredible! :-)


  29. Sara — June 23, 2012 at 8:18 am

    Argh, now I hate this tiny Mississippi town even more, there’s no way I’m going to find biscoff spread anywhere here! Or biscoff cookies. Oh no! What is a girl to do?!

    On another note, these look fabulous!


    • CowbellFever — July 2, 2012 at 7:26 pm

      Sara – not sure where you are in MS, but I’m in Starkville and our local Wal-Mart has BOTH the spread (by the Peanut Butter), and the cookies. I’ve had the spread and it is dangerously delicious. I bought a jar to try it and between my husband and I, it was gone within 24 hours! :) You can also go to Biscoff’s website and look-up where your nearest Biscoff retailer is. Good luck! :)

    • Jamie — July 5, 2012 at 1:34 pm

      Thanks for helping Sara out!

  30. HeatherE — June 23, 2012 at 9:46 am

    I found the cookies at Grocery Outlet (discount grocery) for $.10 a packet and bought a case. Sadly, I have yet to find the spread anywhere in my town. I’m on the hunt now because I can’t wait to make these.


  31. Paula — June 23, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I haven’t read 50 Shades of Gray so I can’t comment on the book but I can comment on these cheescakes. They look amazing and I love your presentation.


  32. those look so delicious! i love the presentation! beautiful!


  33. Christie {Pepper Lynn} — June 23, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Biscoff is everywhere these days, but for good reason, I say! These look delicious.


  34. Claudia Annie — June 23, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    che delizia, complimenti! Una ricettina davvero golosa! Buon weekend, un bacio :)


  35. Shams — June 24, 2012 at 4:59 am

    I love how those cheesecakes look. they seem very delectable and yummy. yet, since i live in a foreign country, we don’t have biscoff spread anywhere here. can you offer any other substitute to that? many thanks :)


    • Jamie — June 24, 2012 at 3:57 pm

      Biscoff spread is the same as speculoos spread, if you can find that, you should be golden! Have a great day.

  36. First- I am dying. Can we be best friedns forever? I want to eat this every day for the rest of my life. Next- omg I could not have ready 50 Shades in public! lol So funny..I could barely read it in front of my husband! :)


  37. schaelsicker — June 24, 2012 at 8:59 am

    thanks for this great idea. a nice inspiration.


  38. Megan Pence — June 24, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    My Biscoff addiction is in full swing – this is only pushing it over the top – in all the right ways.



  39. Canada seriously needs to get Biscoff…oh my!


  40. Donna — June 24, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Oh….If ONLY I could find Cool-Whip here in Europe….Is there a way of making your “own” so this dessert (and many others) could “work”…respecting the texture etc?!…Speculoos are quite easy to find here…as is the spread…(Look for the “Lotus” brand whilst in France, Britain or Switzerland!)…..Excellent idea for this hot, hot weather…Who would not love this creamy, cool, cinnamon-y concoction?….Thank you!


  41. Aninas Recipes — June 25, 2012 at 3:26 am

    Yes Yes Yes! I just love the no bake, no fuss puds these days! And you are right, so easy to do! Great for summer… when it eventually gets to us!


  42. Anabel Barbosa — June 25, 2012 at 9:37 am

    OMG!! Yesterday I was at the grocery store and saw the Biscoff spread. I said “Hmmmm, interesting”. Since I love Biscoff cookies I decided to buy it. It’s so good!!! Today, I ran into this recipe and will give it a try.


  43. tss — June 25, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    I just found your blog. Beautiful!
    I will be back!


    • Jamie — June 26, 2012 at 8:59 am


      Thanks so much for stopping by!


  44. Casey@Good. Food. Stories. — June 25, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    Seven Shades of Hades – love it! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures with the combine…


  45. Those little packets of cookies do make everything better don’t they? Love these beautifully presented desserts!


  46. Veselina Zheleva — June 26, 2012 at 4:39 am

    Thanks for the great recipe. I think it will be great if mixed the cream cheese with mascarpone…. There are so much combinations for this :)
    I am definitely trying it out!


  47. megan @ whatmegansmaking — June 26, 2012 at 7:36 am

    These look AMAZING! I will have to try them this summer for sure – so cute!


  48. Deborah Burke — June 26, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Reading this post reminded me of how much I love Biscoff!!! I will have to use the locator and find these amazing things in my area!! Can’t wait to make them!!

    Just out of curiosity…are you/did you enjoy the book? SOOOO many women are reading it now it’s mind-boggling! LOL kind of reminds me of the Twiglight craze, only for mature adults :-)


    • Jamie — June 30, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      Thanks for stopping by. I’m actually not done with the book yet – it’s definitely different though. And I’m constantly annoyed by Anastasia’s use of the term “inner goddess” every other page. We’ll see how I feel after really getting into it! ;)

  49. SP — June 26, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Thanks for this, can’t wait to try it. Can you share from where you got those cute little bowls? I love them! These cheesecakes would fit well into our little Weck Jars, too.


  50. Dawn R — June 26, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    This looks amazing! Can’t wait to make this!
