Mini Biscoff White Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes

Hey, hey! I know I'm a little late, but I hope everyone had a great super bowl and weekend and all that good stuff. I have great news to share. The other half that I refer to often, my boyfriend of almost 6 years, just popped the question last week. So yeah I'm good, being newly engaged and having a pretty ring to look down at would make anybody's day better. :) I really can't stop looking at it. (He did good!) I am so excited and can't wait to start trying on wedding dresses. Any tips you girls have, send them my way! The stress of planning and "buying" is starting to creep up on me a little. Usually I bake to relieve stress which I guess I need to do more, but I've got to watch the figure too so I can get a pretty skinny dress. You know it's hard to bake and not eat it yourself.

That being said....

Mmmmm...Biscoff. If you haven't tried this yet it is sooo yummy. Biscoff is a spread that is made out of cookies, it's about the same consistency as peanut butter. I just want to put it on everything. I actually had it on a piece of toast for my breakfast this morning. See, you can have cookies for breakfast! I made these little treats for super bowl so everyone could just grab one as they're walking by and they were a big hit! The crust, which is made out of Biscoff cookies, is sweet and buttery and the cheesecake is nice and creamy with white chocolate chips studded throughout.

Mini Biscoff White Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes 

Makes 18

For the crust:
1 1/2 Biscoff cookie crumbs
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 tbsp sugar

Preheat the oven to 325F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.

In a bowl of a food processor combine cookies and sugar and pulse into fine crumbs.

Then pour melted butter and pulse until all the ingredients are moistened

Press cookie mixture into the bottom of cupcake liners. (I used a small glass ramekin to pat crumbs down, but you can use anything you can find that will fit)

Bake until the crust is set, 6 minutes. Then set aside to cool while working on the cheesecake mixture.

For the cheesecake:
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup Biscoff spread
White chocolate chips (about 1/2 cup) 
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 275° F.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese on medium-high speed until smooth.

Gradually add the sugar, and beat until combined.

Beat in the vanilla.

Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating to combine and scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add in Biscoff spread and salt, beat to combine.

Then place a few white chocolate chips into the prepared cups then cover with a spoonful of cheesecake mixture, then add a few more white chocolate chips and then fill with cheesecake mixture. (Now I did it like this so I would get the same amount of white chocolate chips it every cheesecake, but you can surely just mix them into your cheesecake batter if you don’t want to fuss with it.)

Bake about 22 to 26 minutes.

Transfer the muffins tins to a wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate (in the muffin tins) at least 4 hours.


Just in case you guys would like to see what has been distracting me.....

Just perfect :)
