Ingredients Notes For Biscoff Pumpkin Cheesecake:

  • Biscoff Cookies: Crushed for the crust, providing a buttery and spiced base.
  • Butter: Melted to bind the crust together.
  • Cream Cheese: Full-fat cream cheese for a rich and creamy filling.
  • Pumpkin Puree: Pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) for authentic pumpkin flavor.
  • Sugar: Granulated sugar for sweetness.
  • Eggs: Adds richness and helps set the cheesecake.
  • Sour Cream: Adds tanginess and extra creaminess to the filling.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the overall flavor.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice: A blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves to complement the pumpkin.
  • Whipped Cream: Optional, for serving.

Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Biscoff Crust:
    • In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups of crushed Biscoff cookies and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Mix until well combined.
    • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  3. Make the Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat 24 ounces (3 packages) of cream cheese and 1 cup of granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.
    • Add 1 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice. Mix until well combined.
    • Add 3 large eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed just until combined after each addition.
  4. Bake the Cheesecake:
    • Pour the pumpkin cheesecake filling over the cooled crust, spreading it evenly. Place the springform pan in a larger baking dish and fill the larger dish with hot water halfway up the sides of the springform pan to create a water bath.
    • Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the center is set but still slightly jiggly. Turn off the oven, open the door slightly, and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 1 hour.
  5. Cool and Chill:
    • Remove the cheesecake from the oven and water bath. Run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake to loosen it from the sides of the pan. Allow it to cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Serve:
    • Before serving, remove the cheesecake from the springform pan and transfer to a serving platter. Optionally, garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

Storage Options:

  • Refrigerate: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Freeze: Freeze the cheesecake (without toppings) for up to 1 month. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
