What Is Biscoff, And What Flavor Does It Add To This Cheesecake?

Biscoff, short for "Biscuits with Coffee," has a rich and flavorful history that traces its origins to the small Belgian town of Lembeke in 1932. Originally known as Lotus Speculoos, these spiced shortcrust biscuits were created by the Boone brothers, who founded Lotus Bakeries. The distinctive flavor of Biscoff can be attributed to a secret blend of spices, with cinnamon playing a prominent role and lending the cookies a warm and aromatic profile.

The unique taste of Biscoff is characterized by the perfect balance of sweetness and spice. The use of brown sugar, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg creates a symphony of flavors that distinguishes Biscoff from other cookies. The crispy texture of the cookies, combined with the warm notes of cinnamon, makes them a delightful accompaniment to coffee or tea. The distinct flavor profile of Biscoff has not only made it a popular treat on its own but has also inspired culinary innovations, such as the creation of Biscoff spread — a creamy, spreadable version of the cookies that can be a versatile ingredient in various desserts, as in this cheesecake.
