If you’re not? Maybe it will change your mind!

Heavenly Limoncello Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust |

Cheesecake is guilty pleasure I revel in, but am very selective about eating.

If a cheesecake looks dry, grainy, or as if the crust will be a let-down, I will sneer at the pathetic attempt at perfection, and willingly pass it up.

However, if a cheesecake looks silky, moist, and smells of tangy richness, I could quickly eat the entire thing before blinking out of my cheesecake-induced fit of fury.

Cheesecakes make a fabulous dessert anytime of year, easily morphing with each season based on add-in ingredients and toppings.

How to Make Limoncello Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust |

I am particularly fond of this Limoncello Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust because it offers a mild lemon liqueur flavor that is perfect for serving with fresh seasonal berries or berry sauces.

Using part limoncello and part fresh squeezed lemon juice (instead of lemon juice alone) offers just the right citrus note without overpowering the natural tang of the cheesecake.

And the texture? Heavenly forkfuls of dense creamy fluff accompanied by a crumbled crust made of sweet Biscoff cookies.

Our Limoncello Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust also offers an endearing layer of sour cream baked over the top blended with a touch of limoncello.

This layer does several things… It increases the intensity of the limoncello flavor. It creates textural contrast and visual appeal. And best of all, if your cheesecake happens to crack on top, which sometimes they do, it covers all flaws for a perfect homemade cheesecake.

    OMG, that layer of sour cream gets me every time. There are three things I covet in baking: the perfect cinnamon roll, the perfect scone and the perfect cheesecake. I think you just knocked this one off of my search.

    How long do I have to wait for it to set up before I pour on the sour cream layer?

    • Sommerposted June 10, 2016 at 11:21 am Reply

      Hi Rachel! Once the cheesecake has baked for 45 minutes, go ahead and pour the sour cream layer over the top. :)

      • Emilyposted June 26, 2016 at 4:42 pm

        Mine is almost finished baking for the 45. Do I really just take it straight out, pour on the sour cream mixture, and pop it back in for 10-12?? Please excuse my nervousness in perfection. The fact that i haven’t butchered this recipe up to this point is a miracle in itself. 

      • Sommerposted July 10, 2016 at 5:54 pm

        Hi Emily! Sorry for the late response. How did it turn out?

    Does this cheesecake freeze well?

    I just made this. It’s not as pretty as yours.  The sour cream topping all sank to the middle but it still looks yummy!  Not sure what I did wrong. 

    • Elizabethposted July 14, 2016 at 8:14 pm Reply

      It was delicious!  Many asked for the recipe!

    This is my third time making this cheesecake because it is so good!  Walmart sells the cookies as does Amazon but they are cheaper at the former.  The first time I made it I did not let the cheesecake cook a bit before I put on the sour cream topping to put it back in the oven and all the topping fell to the middle.  It was good but not pretty.  So now I let it cool for about 20 minutes, put the sour cream on and pop it back in.
