Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie

Who loves cookie dough? I know I’m a fan. And one of the best ways to eat it – other than straight out of the bowl as you’re making cookies – is in ice cream. So to crank it up a notch, I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie. And my goodness, it is good!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie

What you see here is actually the second version. Version 2.0, if you will. The first one I made had a straight up cookie dough crust. Like literally about a quarter inch thick layer of cookie dough at the bottom. Sounds amazing, right? The only problem was that frozen cookie dough can be tough to get a fork through. And even though I was like, BRING IT ON! It didn’t really work out to be all that much fun to have to work so hard to take a bite.

So I switched it up a bit and now we have an oreo crust. I love me some ores too. And now this pie is perfect! I’m trying not to open the freezer so that I can forget it’s there. I just want to face plant in it.

It’s pretty easy to make too. And to make it even easier you could use a store bought cookie dough instead of making your own – though the one posted below is quite awesome. And to be honest, I’m not sure if the store bought cookie dough is technically “safe to eat” but the one below is definitely a safe no-egg, no-bake cookie dough.

So which ever way you decide to go with the cookie dough, once you have it made (or bought), you want to break it up into little balls of dough that are between 1/2 and 3/4 inch in diameter. I actually made my balls closer to 3/4 inch and then cut them either in half or fourths after they were frozen. This step is kind of important because if the balls are too big, they are also tough to get a fork through. Smaller, bite-size balls are best.

Once you have your dough into balls, freeze them. This will allow them to be mixed into the ice cream mixture without getting broken or messed up.

The next step is to make the oreo crust. Crush about 15 oreos. I like to use my food processor – it’s quick and gets the job done right. Add in the melted butter and press the crust into the bottom of the pie pan. You can have it going up the sides, or stick with a thicker crust on the bottom only.

To make the ice cream filling, mix together the cream cheese, sugar and dark brown sugar. Add the cool whip and mix. Then stir in the mini chocolate chips with a spatula and gently fold in about 3/4 of the frozen cookie dough balls. You’ll want to hold onto the rest of the cookie dough to garnish the top of the pie.

Pour the ice cream mixture into the oreo crust. Top with remaining cookie dough and mini chocolate chips. Allow to freeze and then devour!

  1. oh this looks DIVINE!! i love me some cookie dough!

  2. This sounds amazing!

  3. Wow! This is one amazing pie! Love cookie dough and this idea of adding it to a pie!

  4. OH MY GOSH. This looks beyond amazing. The pretties ice cream pie I’ve ever seen! And so full of cookie dough! It’s a must make. I love frozen pies like this. :) And cookie dough anything is the best, right?! :)

  5. Holy COW! Yes please, I’ll take 4 slices. :)

  6. Stopping by from the Pi Day Party..thank you for a great no-egg cookie dough recipe. I’ve been looking for one. I’d totally be hiding this in the freezer too. :) Pinning!


  7. if you use sore bought cookie dough, how much do you think is required?

    • I haven’t actually used store bought dough for this before, but I would think one package (about 1 lb) should be enough. You don’t want the pie to be too overloaded or it could be difficult to eat.

  8. rosalind says:

    Looks fantastic! Was wondering if pressed for time a premade oreo crust would work?

  9. I will be making this next weekend for my son’s birthday! He loves cookie dough ice cream!

  10. The whip that I use is not whipped, and then I whip it up into whip cream. How does that translate into cool whip? Is cool whip already whipped?

    • Cool Whip is already whipped, but it also has different ingredients than whipping cream (if that’s what you use). I’m not sure that you could substitute the cool whip for whipped cream made from whipping cream in this particular recipe.

  11. What about a bashed chocolate chip cookie crust instead of oreo? I might try using store bought dough just fir that then make the rest. :-) the pie looks delicious!

    • Haha baked not bashed… Silly fingers.

    • Hi Megan! I actually did that the first time around and ended up changing it to an oreo crust because it was so hard to cut through the frozen cookie. Mine was pretty thick though – maybe if you had a thinner cookie it’d be better. Either way you go, it should be great! :)

  12. Michele West says:

    Hello! How much butter is called for in the cookie dough? Thanks!

  13. little angel says:

    What are the normal measurements? I want to make it but I have no idea how to put this together…

  14. Oh my word – that looks amazing! I made my own version of a cookie dough ice cream pie a few years ago ( and I totally get what you mean about the cookie dough layer getting hard to put a fork through. This is the perfect solution – you still get cookie dough in each bite, but without the struggle. I’ll definitely be making this next time :)

  15. Dear Lindsay,
    You are a genius. I want to eat every last crumb of this pie. That is all.

  16. I love your ice cream cakes so much. I have made 5 different ones now and my favourite is a toss up between this and the bailey’s chocolate one. I keep taking them into work and have become very popular. People keep saying I am a good baker but I tell them I can follow a recipe but you are the genius behind the cakes I am making. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes.

  17. I think I would like a slice of this pie as well as one slice each of the three other cakes/pies pictured! Yummy!!!

  18. Oh my goodness…. this pie looks HEAVENLY!!!!! It sounds absolutely amazing!!!!

  19. Found your recipe on Pinterest….and it looks amazing! Who doesn’t love cookie dough or icecream, right?! That being said I have an allergy to cream cheese (weird, I know) so wondering what I could maybe substitute and still get the right consistency? Thanks!

    • says:

      I’ve actually been wanting to try replacing the cream cheese with Greek yogurt. That could be good – and healthy.

  20. This looks totally irresistible! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  21. This takes cookie dough to a whole new level. Super gorgeous and creative!!!

  22. LoverOfAnythingChocolate says:

    This is to die for!!! I must make it, I LOVE LOVE LOVE CHOCOLATE! And CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH!!! MMMMM! (Sry about the caps, I’m just so excited)

  23. I ask Do you bake the cookie dought ? Let me know thanks.Ana

  24. Have you tried this using store bought ice cream softened to add cookie dough?

    • says:

      I haven’t, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You could even just melt down cookie dough ice cream.

  25. I just finished dinner and I don’t have anything sweet in the house! Thanks a lot for making my mouth water and all I can do is look at your pictures! :-) Seriously, these desserts look absolutely amazing, especially the cookie dough pie! Thanks for a great post!

  26. This looks AMAZING! I’m not a huge fan of cream cheese though, so could I use ice cream and then soften it?

  27. This looks delicious! I was wondering, on the crust, when it says 15-20 oreos. Is that with the cream added or just one individual cookie?

    • says:

      I leave the cream in the Oreos. It will mix right into the crumbs and actually helps hold everything together.

  28. We love this pie! You’re invited to come link it up (and your other pie recipes you may have) at our Pie Party here:

    Have a great day,

  29. Hi Lindsay, I love, love, love your recipes! I made this tonight for my dad’s birthday tomorrow. When I was making the cookie dough, it was very crumbly looking; almost the consistency of bread crumbs. I added a splash of milk & bippity, boppity, boop!! It turned out perfect :-) I also had a stroke of genius and covered the base of the crust (store bought, I admit) in Hershey’s chocolate syrup. I’m so excited for my dad to try it tomorrow! Thanks so much!

    • says:

      Awesome! I hope your dad loved it! And I’m so glad you enjoy the recipes – that’s great to hear :)

  30. Hi! I was planning on making this soon as a summer treat for a group of people. However, I am not a fan of cool whip and prefer whipping cream, but will the whipping cream work just as well? Or should I just stick with cool whip?

  31. I made this for Thanksgiving and it is delicious. I don’t love cream cheese so I used double the whipped cream and also added chocolate covered toffee to the cream part and the top and some fudge over the top. Also, I used a 9.5″ deep dish pie plate to accommodate for the additional cool whip, so I should’ve used at least 20 Oreos for the crust.

  32. Just a quick question…instead of making an oreo crust, is it possible to use a store-bought frozen pie crust? i had one leftover i needed to use. Thanks!

  33. Stephanie says:

    I made this yesterday for my husbands birthday, the cookie dough and the pie crust are delicious, but I was disappointed with the ice cream part. I was really debating whether to buy ice cream or make this version because hubby’s not crazy about cream cheese, but when I read through the comments people who made it said you couldn’t taste the cream cheese and it tastes store bought, so I gave it a try. I wish I just went with store bought, it’s very heavy and has a very strong cream cheese flavor, it’s almost more like a cheesecake than ice cream. I even added vanilla extract to try And mask the cheese taste, but it didn’t help much. Maybe if you halved the cream cheese it wouldn’t be so pronounced or rich/heavy.. Thank you for the recipe, I will definitely make the cookie dough and pie crust again, it was just the ice cream part that wasn’t for us!

  34. Hi Lindsay!
    I’m dying to try your chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream pie. I want to make it for a dessert tomorrow. Can you please tell me how long it typically takes for the ice cream part of the recipe to “freeze”? Thank you!
