It was Father’s Day in the UK on Sunday and I was spending it with Rob and his 3 beautiful children. As we were going to his parents for dinner, I made dessert to take along for us all. All 5 of us (plus Rob’s family) are big fans of Biscoff so when I saw the recipe for a Biscoff cheesecake on pinterest I thought it would be perfect!
Now, I know we have both been trying hard to shift a few pounds and once you read this recipe you will think I am crazy but honestly, every calorie is worth it!
What you’ll need:
All about the base;
- 300g of Biscofff Biscuits
- Butter (I’m so sorry I haven’t got an exact amount, Rob was in charge of the biscuit base so I didn’t see how much butter he used!)
The filling of dreams;
- 500g of Full Fat Cream Cheese
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 100g of Icing Sugar
- 300ml Double Cream
- 250g Biscoff Spread (I used the smooth kind)
Things to make it look pretty;
- Biscoff Spread (I melted mine in the microwave)
- Crushed Biscoff biscuits
- Broken up Biscoff Biscuits
What you’ll need to do:
- Put the biscuits into a ziplock bag and crush until they are fine enough to mix with butter to create a strong base. (We had run out of ziplock bags so Rob crushed our by putting them into the nutribullet bit by bit! Works just as well, however it is very time consuming!)
- Once the biscuits are crushed and mixed with butter press into a tin. I used a disposable foil dish as I thought it would be easier to transport and lets be honest… no washing up!
- If you have time, put the base in the fridge to set a little. I learnt the hard way that it is hard to spread the mixture on the base when it is not yet set.
- In a bowl add the cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla and biscoff and stir together until well combined. The original recipe says to use an electric whisk but we didn’t have one, it came together easy enough just mixing well with a spoon.
- After a taste test from your family and then having to protect the bowl from them add in the double cream. YES double cream, you will wonder if you need it but trust me, you do. Just pour and thank me later.
- When the mixture of dreams is all combined and can hold itself spread onto the biscuit base evenly. Then of course hand the bowl over to your family to lick!
- To decorate; break up the left over Biscoff biscuits, then crush a few so you have Biscoff crumbs and melt the left over Biscoff in the jar. Sprinkle over the biscuit pieces, then sprinkle over the crumbs and then finally drizzle over the melted Biscoff.
- Refrigerate for as long as you can, the recipe said originally for 5 to 6 hours or overnight but to be honest ours was probably in the fridge for around 30 minutes, then on my lap in the car for 20 and then back in the fridge for 2 and it was absolutely fine! More than fine it was delicious!
This recipe is without a doubt a favourite in our house now, its very indulgent but in a good way! Let me know if you make it, I would love to see some pictures and see how you got on!
