It takes just about 20 minutes to make and assemble! Place it in the refrigerator for a few hours and enjoy.

What is Biscoff?

Biscoff or “Lotus Biscoff” is a brand of spiced Belgian cookies that have a distinct cinnamon-caramel flavor. You will often see these cookies served in cafes in Europe alongside a cup of coffee, because their inviting flavor and crunchy texture make them perfect for dunking. In fact, ‘biscoff’ is actually short for ‘biscuit with coffee’!

How to Make Biscoff Cheesecake

  1. Make the crust. Pulse the cookies and butter in a food processor. Press the cookies into a pie pan.
  2. Make the filling. Beat the whipping cream, then add the cream cheese and cookie butter. Add the powdered sugar and salt. Pour the filling over the crust and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  3. Drizzle with cookie butter. Before serving, drizzle with melted cookie butter.

Ingredients for Biscoff Cheesecake

  • Biscoff Cookies – You can find these little cookies in most grocery stores. Look for Lotus Biscoff cookies which are the original brand. Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookies are a perfect ingredient swap. 
  • Unsalted Butter – Melted, unsalted butter is the key to getting the cookie crust to hold its shape in the pan. 
  • Whipping Cream – Whipped cream makes this no-bake cheesecake filling luscious and creamy.
  • Cream Cheese – Be sure to soften the cream cheese to room temperature so the filling is ultra smooth when you combine it with the other ingredients. When baking, it’s best to use block, rather than tub cream cheese. 
  • Cookie Butter – Cookie butter comes in crunchy and creamy varieties. For baking, use creamy cookie butter for easy mixing. Save the crunchy cookie butter for snacking! 
  • Powdered Sugar – Powdered sugar helps to stabilize the no-bake cheesecake filling.
  • Salt – Pantry staple to bring all of the flavors together.

Make Ahead

Cookie butter cheesecake can be made 1 day in advance. Wait to drizzle the top with the melted cookie butter until you’re ready to serve.

How to Store It

Store no-bake biscoff cheesecake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Because this creamy cheesecake contains dairy products, it should always be refrigerated. You can also freeze the cheesecake for 3 to 4 months.

Recipe Tips

  • When shopping for cookie butter, keep in mind it may also be labeled as biscoff spread or speculoospasta.
  • To help set the cookie crust, place the pie plate in the freezer while you prepare the filling. 
  • Take your time when beating the whipping cream. Stiff, sturdy peaks are a crucial step to creating a dense, cheesecake texture.

  • Add extra cookies – Dust the top of the cheesecake with crushed biscoff cookie crumbs.
  • Try different toppings – Add a spoonful of whipped cream, or a drizzle of caramel sauce. A nice scoop of your favorite ice cream makes this dessert even more decadent.

Can I make this crustless?

The whipped cream and cream cheese filling in this no-bake cheesecake has such a silky, melt-in-your-mouth texture that it needs the support of a (delicious) cookie crust. For the best result, and to help the cheesecake keep its beautiful shape, you will want to keep the crust.

What if I can’t find Biscoff cookies?

If biscoff cookies aren’t available, speculoos are a good swap, and they have almost the exact same flavor as Lotus biscoff cookies. If you encounter a cookie emergency, and neither of those can be found, try gingersnaps or graham crackers.

Is biscoff cheesecake gluten-free?

Unfortunately, biscoff cookies and cookie butter contain wheat, which means biscoff cheesecake is not gluten-free.

  1. I made this last week with regular Cookie Butter, and it was SO good that I’ve just made it again using Trader Joe’s cookie butter-cocoa spread blend as a birthday present for a friend. Kind of mad I won’t get any of it myself! Thank you for the quick, easy and delicious recipe.

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and let me know, Jane! I’m glad you liked it, and I’m definitely going to have to try it with that cookie butter-cocoa combo – yum!

  2. I made this last night and ate some today. WOW!!!!! So easy and quick……NO fuss. Love it. I am fortunate to live in Belgium and they sell this cookie butter everywhere. They call it ‘speculoospasta’ or ‘speculaaspasta.’ I remember the first time I tried it I was hooked. I used speculoos cookies for the crust. My Flemish husband LOVES the pie as well.

    Thank you Jess!!!!!

    1. Thanks so much for your note Ariane, and I’m so glad you liked the pie! It’s so simple, I know I’ll be making it all the time when I’m back in the land of speculoos again – I’m a bit envious that you can find the tasty stuff so easily! (And that you live in Belgium – what a beautiful country.)
