No-Bake Lotus Cheesecake from Halwa Bakery & Cafe


ROANOKE, Va. – No oven? no problem!

Karmen George, owner of Halwa Bakery & Cafe in Blacksburg, has created a deliciously perfect cheesecake inspired by his Mediterranean heritage that is no-bake, egg-free and has a hint of spice thanks to Lotus Biscoff cookies. Yes, cookies are distributed as snacks during an airplane flight.

To make the crust, take a package and a half of Biscoff cookies and put them in a food processor until you get a sandy mixture. Add a cup of sugar and a cup of melted butter and mix until it is a mixture of wet sand. Press crust mixture into pie pan, creating a crust about half an inch thick. George suggests pressing down the edges with a measuring cup. Refrigerate the pie crust for about an hour before adding the filling on top.
