What is No Bake Biscoff Upside Down Cheesecake?

Our no-bake upside-down Biscoff cheesecake is a super easy dessert that requires exactly zero oven time! We make the crunchy crust using crushed Biscoff cookies and butter and fill it with a luscious, creamy filling swirled with strawberry preserves. Then, we refrigerate the cheesecake until it’s perfectly set.

The reason it’s called upside-down cheesecake is that instead of using a springform pan like many cheesecakes, we use a loaf pan. Then, all we need to do when it’s time to serve is turn the pan upside down to place the cheesecake on a serving platter.

We guarantee you’re going to fall in love with this simple cheesecake — it’s an absolutely delectable dessert that’s always a hit!

Ingredients You Need

  • Crushed Cookies – These give our cheesecake that iconic Biscoff flavor and make a deliciously crunchy base.
  • Unsalted Butter – This brings the cookie crumbs together to form a perfect, solid crust.
  • Salt To Taste – Just a pinch really brings out all of the flavors of the other ingredients and balances the sweetness.
  • Cream Cheese – This is what makes the cheesecake smooth, creamy, and just a touch tangy.
  • Mascarpone Cheese – We love the rich and velvety texture that mascarpone gives the cheesecake!
  • Powdered Sugar – Using fine confectioners sugar sweetens up the filling and also gives it a silky smooth texture. 
  • Vanilla Extract – Vanilla makes the filling aromatic and rounds out all of the flavors.
  • Heavy Cream – Cream makes the filling light and airy once it’s whipped.
  • Strawberry Preserves Or Choice Of Preserves – We swirl this in for some sweet, fruity goodness that pairs perfectly with the other flavors in the filling.

How to Make Upside Down Cheesecake

  1. Make the Crust. Add the cookies to a food processor and pulse until they are fine and crumbly. Then, add them to a large bowl with melted butter and salt and mix to combine. 
  2. Create the Base of the Cheesecake. Place most of the cookie and butter mixture in a loaf pan and use your fingers or the flat bottom of a glass to press them into an even layer on the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Then place the pan in the freezer.
  3. Prepare the Cheesecake Filling. Add the cream cheese, mascarpone, powdered sugar, and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Beat until all ingredients are completely combined before adding the heavy cream. Then, turn up the speed of the mixer and continue to beat until the mixture has formed stiff peaks.
  4. Finish the Cheesecake. Transfer the filling to the loaf pan and swirl in strawberry preserves. Then, top the cheesecake with the rest of the crushed cookies and wrap the pan with plastic wrap. Place it in the fridge until the cheesecake is firm. 
  5. Serve. Invert the pan over a serving plate to release the cheesecake and serve. If necessary, you can slide a butter knife around the edges to make it easier to remove the cheesecake from the pan.

Variations

  • Cookies – Swap out the Biscoff cookies for chocolate cookies, graham crackers, or peanut butter cookies.
  • Cocoa Powder – Add a bit of cocoa powder to the cheesecake filling for an infusion of chocolatey flavor.
  • Chocolate Ganache – Drizzle chocolate ganache over the top of the cheesecake.
  • Mixed Berry Berries – Garnish the cheesecake with a mix of berries like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.
  • Citrus Zest – Add lemon or lime zest to the cheesecake filling for a fresh and bright flavor.
  • Citrus Preserves – Top with lemon or orange marmalade for a citrusy finish.

Can I Store Leftovers? 

Absolutely! This is the perfect make-ahead dessert since it stores so well. 

To refrigerate, simply wrap the cheesecake with plastic wrap. While it can last for up to a week in the fridge, we recommend serving it within 3-5 days. 

To freeze cheesecake, wrap it in plastic wrap before layering foil over top. Then freeze it for up to 3 months.
