No bake speculoos cheesecake

Cheesecake is definitely one of the best desserts out there.

A creamy and generous cake, often decorated with whipped cream and some chopped cookies. What a delight!

As the pastry enthusiast I am, I have always been in love with cheesecakes and for some time now I have been testing new flavors to incorporate in this emblematic cake. The original vanilla cheesecake is a guaranteed treat, but it requires a long baking time in the oven before it can be cooled. To avoid this step and offer a simpler approach, I came up with this no bake cheesecake recipe. Equipement wise, you will need a cheesecake pan or a circle cake mold. Also, this recipe contains cream cheese, which is easily found in grocery stores. To enhance the speculoos cookies taste, I added a hint of coffee in the cream. Without further ado, here's the recipe. Enjoy!



  • 100 g speculoos (lotus) cookies

  • 45 g melted butter


  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 3 tsp espresso coffee

  • 70 g sugar

  • 300 g cream cheese

  • 150 g heavy cream

  • 50 g butter at room temperature (not cold)


  • 200 g heavy cream

  • 50 g sugar

  • Crushed speeculos cookies (approx. 3)

How To
