Yorkshire bakers and pâtissiers, Just Desserts, has collaborated with the world-famous Belgian biscuit brand Lotus to launch a new handcrafted cheesecake.
Just Desserts is one of only a small number of bakeries allowed to use The Lotus Biscoff® biscuit, and has created a cheesecake aimed at the foodservice and hospitality markets.
The original and traditional caramelised biscuit, first baked in the Belgian town of Lembeke in 1932 to a secret Boone family recipe, has been used in the new individual Lotus Biscoff® Cheesecake, combining the biscuit crumb with the bakery’s creamy cheesecake and finished with a marbled Biscoff® spread and a sprinkle of crumb.
James O’Dwyer, managing director, Just Desserts commented: “We are excited to launch our new Lotus Biscoff® Cheesecake, especially being only a handful of businesses given permission to use the famous ‘little red biscuit’ brand which is incredibly popular and familiar in coffee shops worldwide. Originally, these bite sized biscuits were served up by the handful in the run up to Christmas to celebrate the Feast of St Nicholas, so are particularly appropriate for our new product in the build up to the festive season and beyond. Initial interest in the new product is very encouraging.”
