🔪 Instructions for vegan biscoff cheesecake
Make the base
The first step to this cheesecake is to make the base. Place your biscuits into a food processor and blitz on high until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Melt your 4 tbsp of butter and stir into the biscuits. Until all the biscuit crumbs are damp but not wet from the butter. If it is too dry add a little more butter.
Press the base mixture into the bottom of your glasses. Use the head of a rolling pin or your fingers to flatten.
Place in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
Make the cheese filling
In a stand or hand mixer, mix together the icing sugar, biscoff spread and cream cheese together until thick. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and carefully pipe it on top of the biscuit base
Place glasses back into the fridge.
Next, make the caramel sauce - place your granulated sugar into a saucepan and heat on medium. Do not stir, once sugar has melted and looks caramel in colour, remove from the heat.
Stir in the butter and put back on the heat for 1 minute.
Remove from the heat again and slowly add in the milk, while stirring. Be very careful, as this will bubble a lot, you may want to wear gloves or use a deep saucepan. it will rise by 3-4 inches.
Once all milk has been absorbed and mixed, set aside to cool.
Once the caramel has cooled, pour some over the top of your cream cheese filling.
Finally, use a stand mixer or hand mixer to whip your double cream. You want a pipeable consistency.
Pipe your cream onto the top of your cheesecake. Top with half a lotus biscoff and serve.
💭 Top tips
When adding your filling ensure it's thoroughly blended. Make sure there are no lumps from the cashews.
If you'd like your filling sweeter just add a little more maple syrup.
If banana's aren't your thing, you can replace them with strawberries. You can also omit the cocoa from the filling to create a plain cheesecake filling instead of a chocolate one.

These will keep for up to three days.
How is it stored?
Store these in your fridge. These don't taste good when frozen and defrosted so just store these in the fridge. They won't keep if left out either. The filling will go runny.
