Biscoff Cheesecake Bars




When I saw this recipe on the Bakerella site I was so excited because I love the Biscoff cookies and thought what could be more perfect than a crust made of these.  The Biscoff cookies are the ones you get on Delta Airlines.  You can buy them in the store now. I could sit and eat the whole package. Not a good thing.  They are just so light and tasty. In my store I found them in the gourmet section and not with the regular cookies. You might have to ask someone if you don't find them. This is a very easy recipe and would be great too make a day ahead so it gets good and chilled.

Crust

1 1/2 cups crushsed Biscoff cookies (about 25, close to one package)
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter

Mix cookies and sugar together. Add butter and stir until combined. Press mixture into a 13x9 glass dish or pan.

Cheesecake

3 (8oz.) packages cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream the sugar, cream cheese, and flour with an electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy.  On medium low, add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix until just combined. Pour on prepared crust and bake for about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Prepare ganache.

Chocolate Ganache

8 oz. heavy whipping cream
4 tablespoons butter
8 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped small
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Heat cream and butter on stove until just before boiling. Remove from stove and pour over chopped chocolate. Stir until completely combined. Add confectioners' sugar and beat with a wire whisk until combined and smooth. Pour over cooled cheesecake. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Cut into bars and serve


Makes about 30 bars.
