It’s holiday season and holiday season calls for delicious and decadent desserts for you and your loved ones. Say hello to my latest delectable creation: cookie butter cheesecake!
For as long as I can remember, cheesecake has been my favorite dessert. I love cheesecake because it is so versatile, allowing you to experiment with all kinds of flavors. Since high school, I’ve been baking cheesecakes and I’ve only gotten better with time. I’ve made flavors ranging from the typical Oreo, to strawberry shortcake, to sweet potato to banana Nutella cheesecake. The list literally goes on. I’ve even made these Mini Very Berry Cheesecakes that were completely vegan, and just as delicious.
One day a few weeks ago, I made a Trader Joe’s run and picked up some of the infamous cookie butter. The very next day, I was walking through Kroger and saw Biscoff cookies on sale. It felt like God was talking to me. Instantly, the light bulb went off in my head… I’m going to make Cookie Butter Cheesecake! What I love most about this flavor combination is that you get the creaminess of a traditional cheesecake, paired with the sweet and subtle spice of the Biscoff cookies. It’s the perfect combination for the holidays, with deliciousness infused in every layer. Pro Tip: if you can find the chocolate covered Biscoff cookies, grab some of those to pair with the regular Biscoff cookies for your topping. The chocolate adds this pop of rich sweetness that elevates the flavors.
So what are you going to need?
I’m going to share the recipe below with the ingredients, but make sure you have a springform pan on hand. You can grab the one I use here. You will also need a large deep baking dish for the water bath (more on that below), a stand mixer, and a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, no worries- you can crush the cookies by hand.
Okay, now we’re ready to make some magic. If you are looking for a creamy, decadent, and absolutely delicious dessert, look no further. This cookie butter cheesecake is sure to impress your family and friends, so let me help you to whip it up just in time for the holidays.
