What is Biscoff?
Biscoff, also known as Lotus Biscoff, is a brand of spiced speculoos cookies that originated in Belgium. These cookies are known for their crispy texture and warm, slightly spiced flavour, which comes from the blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and other spices.
Biscoff spread, also known as cookie butter, is a delicious and creamy spread made from Biscoff cookies ground into a smooth paste. It has a similar texture to peanut butter and Nutella, but instead has a unique, caramelised cinnamon flavour.
What are no bake cheesecakes?
No bake cheesecakes do not contain eggs and don't require any cooking. Compared to baked cheesecakes, they're less dense and offer a light and fluffy cream cheese based filling similar to a mousse. In addition, cheesecake batter can sometimes use gelatin to help stabilise it. However, this recipe won't need any because it's piped into a serving dish and spooned out rather than sliced.
Chummys Biscoff Cookies- Crumbled cookies make up the delicious base for these no bake cheesecake cups. Typically these desserts use graham crackers and melted butter, but our soft and gooey cookies offer the perfect texture with a much better taste.
Mascarpone- Mascarpone is an Italian cheese with a very rich taste. It's similar to cream cheese, but it's made from heavy cream rather than milk.
Cream cheese- Cream cheese and Mascarpone are the base for this no bake lotus biscoff cheesecake cups recipe. It adds a great tangy flavour that pairs exceptionally well with the spices in the Biscoff spread.
Powdered sugar- Powered sugar (also known as confectioners sugar or icing sugar) is used to sweeten this recipe instead of granulated sugar. Granulated sugar will leave the cheesecake mixture grainy, whereas powdered sugar ensures a silky smooth consistency.
Cookie butter- Biscoff cookie butter spread adds a concentrated flavour to the cheesecake filling.
Heavy whipping cream- Heavy cream makes the cheesecake filling light and airy. You can also use double cream to make a thicker filling.
Vanilla extract-Vanilla extract helps elevate the cream cheese and mascarpone's natural flavours.
Whipped Cream- To top off each dessert, a scoop of whipped cream contrasts the rich filling and crunchy cookie layers.
How to make No Bake Biscoff Cheesecake Cups
4 ounces full-fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2/3 cup warmed cookie butter, divided
1 cup cold heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2-4 Chummys Lotus Biscoff cookies, crumbled
Whipped cream and additional Lotus Biscoff cookies or cookie crumbs for garnish, optional
In a large bowl, whip mascarpone until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar and whip for 2-3 minutes until fully incorporated. Fold in 1/4 cup of cookie butter until well mixed.
In a separate bowl, use an electric hand mixer to whisk the heavy cream until soft peaks form, 3-4 minutes.
Gently fold the whipped cream into the cheesecake filling until just incorporated.
Place the cream cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round piping tip and set aside.
Prepare your serving glasses by beginning with a layer of about 2-3 tablespoons of cookie crumbles on the bottom.
Pipe a 1/2-inch layer of cheesecake filling on top. Then, drizzle a bit of melted Biscoff spread on top of that. Repeat each layer in the same order until it's near the top of your serving cup. If desired, finish with additional whipped cream and crumbled Chummys Lotus Biscoff cookies or Biscoff cookie crumbs.
Place the Biscoff no bake cheesecake cups into the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour for best results. Enjoy the chilled cheesecake straight from the jar with a spoon. Place a Biscoff cookie into the top layer of whipped cream to garnish for presentation.
For a chocolate crust: Use crumbled-up Chummys Lotus Biscuit Brownies.
Enjoy them chilled: These mini Biscoff cheesecakes taste best chilled, but you can also enjoy them immediately. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days for the best taste.
Use a transparent dish: A clear dessert dish or small mason jar will let the wonderful layers of the dessert show through for a party-worthy presentation.
