Step 1: Prepare the cake pan
- Grease the base and sides of a 20.5cm (8”) round springform pan with butter or cooking spray.
- Unclip the pan to remove the base.
- Take a 30.5cm (12”) sheet of baking parchment and lay it over the base of the pan.
- Carefully clip the paper-covered base back into the tin so the paper is tightly stretched over the base and any overhang is pulled underneath the join.
- Line the sides of the pan with another piece of baking parchment.
Step 2: Make the biscuit base
- Pulse the biscuits in a food processor until finely ground.
- Drizzle in the melted butter and pulse until combined.
- Tip the biscuit mixture into the base of the prepared tin.
- Press and smooth down with the back of a spoon.
- Put into the fridge to chill.
Step 3: Make the cheesecake filling
- Using a hand-held electric whisk, beat together the cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth.
- Beat in the double cream and vanilla until the mixture is thick and holds its shape.
Step 4: Assemble the cheesecake
- Spoon half the cream cheese mixture into the tin, spread roughly to level.
- Dollop over teaspoonfuls of the Biscoff spread.
