- No added sugar. There isn’t any additional sugar added to this Biscoff cookie crust recipe! The sweetness comes from the cookies themselves!
- Two-ingredient pie crust. All you need for this pie crust with biscoff cookies is two simple ingredients: butter and the cookies themselves!
- Baked or chilled. You can either bake this biscoff crust or chill either! Either works great.
- Biscoff Cookies: I use a food processor to finely crush the cookies. You’ll need about 2 1/2 cups of biscoff cookie crumbs.
- Butter: I used unsalted butter. If you use salted butter, omit the pinch of salt!
- Make the Biscoff cookie crust. Combine cookie crumbs, melted butter and pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Mix to combine.
- Press into a pie plate. Press the crust mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate using your hands or the bottom of a measuring cup.
- Bake the Biscoff cookie pie crust. Place in an oven preheated to 350°F. Bake for 8 minutes. The crust will be golden brown. Remove and let cool to room temperature before filling. Enjoy!
For a no-bake pie crust chill the Biscoff cookie crust in the fridge for 30 minutes or until firm.
If you don’t have a food processor to make the cookie crumbs, you can try a blender if your manufacturer’s instructions allow the use of dry blending.
Another option is to place the cookies in a large plastic bag that seals (ziplock bag works great) and use a rolling pin to crush them. Just make sure you get the crumbs as fine as possible.
When adding the butter to the biscoff crumbs, you want the mixture to resemble wet sand.
I just melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave. You’re welcome to melt it on the stove, but that seems like a lot of unnecessary work!
If using a springform pan instead of a 9-inch pie pan, you won’t press the mixture up the sides of the pan. Just press into the bottom.
Make Ahead, Storing, and Freezing
You can definitely make this pie crust with biscoff cookies ahead of time. Either chill it or bake it and store in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Store the biscoff crust in the fridge for 3-4 days.
You can freeze it by letting the whole thing cool completely and then wrapping in plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 2 months.
No. The crust won’t be crunchy though if that is what you are expecting. Unless if you over bake the crust. Typically he crust will soften a bit when you have the filling on top. But it won’t be soggy unless you are making a very liquidy pie filling.
Simply crush the biscoff biscuits into fine crumbs and combine with melted butter, then press into a pie plate. Easy peasy!
The cookies contain sugar, but you don’t add any sugar to the biscoff crust recipe when making the biscoff cookie pie crust.
No you don’t! If you don’t want to bake the pie crust, you don’t have to. You can chill it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or until set.
When adding the butter and the cookie crumbs, you want the mixture to feel and look like wet set. If it looks or feels a bit drier to you, add a tad more butter.
