I have a question about the recipe "Meyer Lemon Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust" from Lucy Mercer. Living abroad, now idea what a Biscoff cookie is, any idea of UK or Irish substitutes?

Janie, I believe they are actually European in origin, though I don't know about the trademark itself. Have you seen Lotus cookies/biscuits? They are oblong-ish (rectangualr with rounded edges) and the packaging is white with red. They are crispy and have a very pleasant cinnamon flavor, medium brown in color. I am sure you will be able to find them at any well stocked European market. Hope this helps.

Here is the common packaging. Almost identical in design to the American, except it doesn't have the gold Biscoff writing on the front:
