Many of us at TPG love Lotus Biscoff cookies. Maybe it’s because they’ve been given out on so many airlines over the years. Delta Air Lines is probably the most famous name associated with the brand. Delta began serving them back in the 1990s and over the years they’ve also appeared and then disappeared from several airlines — including American Airlines and United Airlines.

TikTok star James Lamprey is also a fan and we partnered with the celebrity chef (@officialfunfoods on TikTok) last month to see what kind of magic he could make with the famous cookies. We couldn’t be more excited about what he came up with.

Delta sent cookies to TPG and to Lamprey. Below is the TikTok video where he shows us how he made an incredible dessert using Biscoff cookies (and some Biscoff cookie butter!) provided by Delta. We’ve also added the recipe below, so you can make this Biscoff pie at home … if you just can’t get enough.
