Lotus Biscoff Cheesecake



  • It is a no-bake, no gelatine, and no egg recipe so it is super easy to make and requires only a few ingredients.
  • It is light and creamy unlike baked cheesecake so everyone will love it.


 The history of the Biscoff or Speculoos

Speculoos was developed in the 20th century around the area of Verviers and made as an alternative for people who couldn't afford the real Dutch speculaas. The origins of speculaas are much older. In the 2020s the names speculaas and speculoos are sometimes used interchangeably in Flanders(Belgium).

In fact, it is believed that the name speculoos derives from the Latin word speculum or mirror since the cookie is the mirror image of the wooden mold in which it's been made.

 (ingredients include cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, and ginger)

Now back to the recipe...

  • 250g Lotus Biscoff Cookies
  • 72g (5 tbsp) Unsalted butter
  • 2 x 280g package of Full Fat Cream Cheese, 560g total
  • 3/4 cup (100g) Icing sugar/powdered sugar, (sifted)
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 150g (1/2 cup + 2 tbsp) Biscoff Spread
  • 1 1/2cup (350g) Whipping Cream
  • 150g (1/2 cup + 2 tbsp) Biscoff Spread
  • 6-8 Cookies


  1. Grease and line the bottom and sides of an 8” or 9” springform round cake pan with baking paper.
  2. Crush the lotus biscoff cookies in a food processor or a ziplock bag with a rolling pin until they are fine crumbs. Add melted butter to the cookie crumbs and mix until they are coated well and resemble wet sand.
  3. Pour the cookie mixture into the spring form cake pan and spread it out evenly. Press it down firmly using the bottom of a glass. The crust is ready. Pop it in the fridge for one hour to set completely or in the freezer for 15-30 minutes while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
  1. Chill the mixing bowl and beater attachment in the fridge for 30 minutes. Pour the whipping cream (chilled) into the chilled bowl, add in half of the icing sugar then beat it at medium speed until stiff peak forms (it will take approximately 2-3 minutes). Avoid over beating otherwise it will turn into butter. Set aside.
  2. Take another large mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese (should be at room temperature) and lemon juice, beat it for a minute then add vanilla extract, icing sugar and biscoff spread then beat again until it becomes smooth and fluffy (approximately 2 minutes). Microwave the biscoff spread just for 10 seconds to melt it a little bit before mixing it into the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Fold the chilled whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture in two additions. Fold it gently with a spatula to avoid the deflating of the filling.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly onto the cookie crust. Smooth it out with an offset spatula or bench scraper.
  5. Tap a few times on the counter, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8-10 hours or overnight (preferably).
  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add biscoff spread and microwave for 25-30 seconds, mix well with a spoon and pour over the cheesecake, spread evenly with a spoon, and pop in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to set the top.
  2. Sprinkle some crushed biscuits over the top.
  3. Cut into pieces using a sharp knife and drizzle some melted biscoff spread and serve.

If I don't like the taste of peanut butter, will I like the taste of biscoff spread? They look similar.

Sounds delicious. How much vanilla extract to the Cheesecake filling?
