I feel like Biscoff came out of nowhere and suddenly became one of the most popular spreads and flavours out there, along with the likes of Nutella. This is not a bad thing as it’s absolutely yummy stuff and it’s another fun ingredient to experiment with when baking. Also my boyfriend loves it, so anything I make with Biscoff I know he’ll happily devour it!
I’ve created these Biscoff Cheesecake Squares which start with a layer of Lotus Biscoff biscuits, then they’re topped with creamy vanilla cheesecake which is then swirled with Biscoff cheesecake. I find making baked cheesecake in a traybake so simple to make and also really easy to portion out and serve, plus the swirled effect means there’s no additional decoration needed!
How to make Biscoff Cheesecake Squares…
To make the biscuit base I whizzed up some Lotus biscuits in the food processor, then I mixed them with melted butter and pressed into the bottom of a lined baking tin. I baked them for 10 minutes, then left them to cool. Next I made the vanilla cheesecake filling by whisking together cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla.
I poured it into the baking tin on top of the biscuit base. Then I made the Biscoff cheesecake filling by whisking together cream cheese, eggs, sugar and Biscoff spread. I added blobs of it all over the vanilla cheesecake.
Then using a butter knife, I swirled the mixture around to create a pretty pattern. The cheesecake baked for 30 minutes, then I let it cool completely and then popped it in the fridge.
The Biscoff Cheesecake Squares were so creamy and full of caramelised biscuit flavour. They are an absolute dream for anyone who loves Biscoff and cheesecake!
What is Biscoff?
Biscoff spread, made by the brand Lotus, is also known as cookie butter. It has a deep caramel flavour and a hint of cinnamon and other spices. Lotus are best known for their biscuits, which are commonly served with coffee. The biscuits are used to make the spread, and you can buy it in crunchy and smooth varieties. The spread is similar to Nutella or peanut butter in terms of texture, but it has a unique flavour. It’s also naturally vegan!
The Biscoff Cheesecake Squares did not last long in my house as my friends and boyfriend are huge Biscoff fans!
