Ingredients You’ll Need
For this easy Biscoff tiramisu recipe, we used just a handful of ingredients to create the classic texture you love without a slight twist on the taste. Here’s what you need:
- Biscoff Cookies – These form the base of the dessert, providing a bit of crunch and helping it hold its shape.
- Sugar – Regular granulated sugar helps sweeten the filling, mitigating some of the tanginess of the cheese.
- Mascarpone Cheese – This is a crucial component in any tiramisu recipe. For the best results, make sure it’s full-fat and plain.
- Espresso or Strong Coffee – Feel free to use decaf, if preferred.
- Heavy Cream – Combined with the mascarpone, this makes for the fluffiest, smoothest, dreamiest consistency.
- Biscoff Cookie Butter – Not found in your average tiramisu, this is our secret weapon for adding an extra element of sweet, spicy flavor that makes this dessert utterly irresistible.
- Vanilla Extract – Use pure, high-quality vanilla to enhance the flavor of the rest of the ingredients.
- Cocoa Powder – Technically optional but highly recommended, we dust a light layer of cocoa on top for a final touch of rich chocolate you’ll love.
How to Make Biscoff Tiramisu
Tiramisu may look super fancy, but it’s actually super easy to make, and you don’t even have to turn on your oven! Here’s how it’s done:
- Create the Filling. In a large bowl, add the heavy cream, sugar, cookie butter, mascarpone, and vanilla extract. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to blend the ingredients until stiff peaks form.
- Make the Espresso or Coffee. Let cool completely.
- Soak the Cookies. Dip two cookies into the espresso at a time, and arrange them in a single layer in the bottom of a baking dish.
- Layer. Part of the cream mixture on top, and repeat the process, finishing with a final layer of the cream filling. Then, dust the cocoa powder on top.
- Chill. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, and transfer it to the freezer to chill.
- Serve. Slice the Biscoff tiramisu into squares, and enjoy chilled!
Tips and Tricks
- Use Room Temperature Ingredients. For the best results, allow all your ingredients to come to room temperature before you begin to assemble the dessert. This will allow for easier mixing, creating an ultra-fluffy filling.
- Don’t Oversoak the Cookies. Dunk the cookies in the espresso just long enough for them to be completely coated. Then, be sure to let any extra liquid drip off before arranging them in the baking dish. Otherwise, your cookies are likely to become soggy.
- Allow Plenty of Chilling Time. You want your Biscoff tiramisu to chill in the fridge for at least four hours. However, it’s best when left in the fridge overnight. This allows for the dessert to set and all of the flavors to meld together.
This Biscoff tiramisu recipe is actually best when made 24 hours in advance! However, it also stores well if you have leftovers or want to prep farther ahead.
- Refrigerator: Keep your dish covered with plastic wrap, and store it in the fridge for up to two to three days.
- Freezer: If you plan on freezing your dessert, leave off the cocoa powder until just before serving. Then, wrap it in clingwrap followed by aluminum foil, and keep it frozen for up to three months.
- To Serve: Thaw your tiramisu in the fridge overnight. Then, add your cocoa powder, and enjoy!
