I certainly hope you like chocolate chip cookie dough. And cookie dough ice cream.

Because there is a whole lotta cookie dough happenin’ today!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls - to put in ice cream!

You know when you’re eating chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and it’s really just vanilla ice cream with 2 chunks of cookie dough?  What a let down! Where is all the cookie dough?!

Well I decided to change all that today. Cookie dough lovers, meet your new best friend.  She’s melty, chocolate-y, creamy, and oh-so-doughy!  Each bite is full of cookie dough – 2-3 cookie dough chunks per bite!  Yep, I counted. This ice cream pie is to die for!

The first (and most important!) step is to make all those gorgeous little cookie dough balls.  The cookie dough is egg-free and completely safe to eat.  Mix the dough up with your mixer and roll into a TON of balls.  It will feel like you’ve been rolling for hours and that there are a million little balls, but it actually only takes about 15 minutes.  If you have 15 minutes to get lost on Pinterest, you have 15 minutes to make these cookie dough balls.

Trust me, you want every last cookie dough ball you can get!

The cookie dough balls are tiny.  About 1/2 – 3/4 inch in diameter. Teeny tiny little guys!

Homemade safe-to-eat cookie dough balls for my Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie!

Freeze the little balls as you prepare the crust and ice cream filling. The crust, by the way, is made from Oreos. Crushed Oreos and melted butter.  Does it really get any better than that? You know it has to be good!

The ice cream filling is made from only two easy ingredients. Vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt) and Cool Whip.  Don’t like Cool Whip or can’t get ahold of it?  Just use more ice cream.  The Cool Whip makes the cake extra creamy; don’t leave it out unless you must.

Add the cookie dough balls to the creamy filling and pour into the crust. Freeze for 4-6 hours, or overnight. Waiting that long is torture, trust me!

It’s the best ice cream pie/cake I’ve ever had. And trust me, I’ve tried plenty of ice cream cakes. Don’t you just want to dig right into all that cookie dough-ness? Unbelievable!

This is such a simple frozen dessert to prepare this summer!  This ice cream pie was my practice because I plan to make another one when Kevin and I are in Deep Creek Lake next week! The exact spot where he proposed 6 short months ago. 🙂

Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie

Yield: Serves 12

Print Recipe

An easy to make, super creamy ice cream pie loaded with homemade chocolate chip cookie dough and mini chocolate chips.


Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed light brown sugar (or dark brown)
  • 1/4 cup (50g)  granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk or cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (160g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (180g) mini chocolate chips (divided)

Oreo Cookie Crust

  • 2 cups crushed Oreo crumbs (about 18 Oreos, Double Stuf or regular)
  • 5 Tablespoons (75g) unsalted butter, melted


  • 1 8-ounce container frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip), thawed
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened (or frozen yogurt)


Make the cookie dough first: In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together on medium speed until light and creamy. Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Turn the mixer off and add the flour and salt. Mix on low speed at first, then turn the mixer up to medium speed and mix until combined. The dough will be thick and crumbly, just keep mixing until it comes together. Mix in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Roll the cookie dough into tiny balls, about 1/2 - 3/4 inch in diameter. Place on the cookie sheet and freeze as you prepare the crust and filling.

Make the crust: Combine the crushed cookies and melted butter. Press mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a nonstick 8-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Make the filling: In a large bowl, mix the Cool Whip and ice cream together until smooth and creamy. Remove the cookie dough balls from the freezer and add 3/4 of them to the ice cream filling. Stir until combined and pour into prepared Oreo crust. Top with the remaining cookie dough balls and 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips. Freeze for 4-6 hours. Remove from the freezer, slice, and serve.

Keep chilled in the freezer up until you serve the pie.

    I was just wondering if i make it with a 9 inch pan instead of an 8 inch pan, will it make a difference??? Will i need to change the recipe some how or what? Thank you, this recipe is looks great!!!


    • Sallyreplied on March 10th, 2014 at 8:31 pm

      No changes needed – 8 or 9 inch pan is just fine. Enjoy!


      • Janereplied on March 10th, 2014 at 9:04 pm

        thank you so much, i am so excited to make this pie, you are awesome.

    So you didn’t bake the cookie dough? Can i bake it instead of freeze it only?


    • Sallyreplied on March 19th, 2014 at 8:42 pm

      This cookie dough is not want to be baked and it would not make very good cookies.


      • Afifahreplied on March 19th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

        Super melty dough i guess?! Can’t wait to make one batch of this. Unfortunately i’m still at the office now (i’m in Indonesia). No choc chips at home, is it ok if it substitute with choc chunk?

    This looks amazing! I am wondering if a springform pan is absolutely necessary? I want to make this tomorrow for my boyfriend’s birthday, but I only have normal 8 inch cake pans…
    Either way, thanks for the amazing recipe!


    • Sallyreplied on March 19th, 2014 at 11:24 pm

      It will be nearly impossible to cut the cake with the sides of the pan in the way, so that’s why a springform pan is required. Perhaps you can make this cookie cake instead:


      • Juliareplied on March 20th, 2014 at 12:33 am

        Oooh that could be a good alternative! Thanks Sally!

    Cookie dough anything is great! Want to make this as soon as the weather gets warmer! Question, how would you store this in the freezer (and for how long) since this will not all get eaten in one sitting?


    • Sallyreplied on March 30th, 2014 at 1:50 pm

      Hey Allie! I make this ice cream pie a lot in the summer – we usually just put the pan back in the freezer with leftover slices for a couple days as we finish it off.

    Hey sally I’m making this for my family for long weekend… I was wondering if you think I could use chocolate syrup instead of butter in the crust Part, kind of like dairy queens center of their cake?


    • Sallyreplied on May 17th, 2014 at 2:51 pm

      You want the crust to stick together, so I do not suggest leaving the butter out. Try drizzling the crust with chocolate syrup, if you’d like, then topping with the cake filling.

    Hey Sally,
    We just made the ice cream pie and it was amazing!
    We used just vanilla ice cream because we didn’t have cool whip, and we whipped the ice cream in our stand mixer which made it like soft serve ice cream. It had so much cookie dough- which we loved! Thanks so much for the recipe, we love your blog.

    Hi Sally – I don’t have a springform pan. Is there a substitution?

      I find it nearly impossible to cut this ice cream cake out of any other cake pans, unfortunately.

    Hey Sally,

    This looks fantastic! Can you freeze this overnight before you serve it? I have a family get together Sunday nightbut I will not have time to make it on sunday. Would it last if I made it Saturday night?

    Thank you and I love your reciples! This will be the 12th one I have made and I have loved them all!


    • Sallyreplied on July 11th, 2014 at 2:40 pm

      Yep. Overnight freezing is just fine. So happy you are enjoying my recipes!

    can I use regular chocolate chips instead of the mini?


    • Sallyreplied on July 28th, 2014 at 5:50 am

      Definitely. I use mini because it’s easier to cram more in the cookie dough compared to the larger size.

    This totally ruined cookie dough ice cream for me. 😀 Jokes aside, this is fabulous!! It was hard work without an electric mixer but totally worth it.
    This is the second of your recipes that I’ve tried and both were so good and so hard to mix by hand that I’m seriously toying with the idea of getting an electric mixer (I wonder why, though, I’ve been baking without one for years).

    Sally Sally Sally!!!
    this is my first time trying any of your recipes and i was so nervous because cookie dough isn’t popular over here
    i made this at a family gathering last weekend and they ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! it was delicious, light and simply divine.
    everyone from all ages loved it 😀

    thank you for the wonderful recipe. so looking forward to trying out your different desserts 🙂

    Sabiposted November 19, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    Okay, Sally right now I am way to tempted to make a batch of cookie dough without chocolate chips (we don’t have any). How do you think this ice cream pie would turn out with other flavors, cause now I’m wondering if I can make a chocolate one.

    I’m sure you won’t approve this message, but that will only show what your interests truly are (you and your blog, not your readers – though I hope you prove me wrong). Raw flour has been found to carry salmonella and e. coli. Just because this mixture doesn’t contain raw eggs does NOT mean it is safe. But I bet 5 bucks that you’ll delete this message without approval before you’ll take responsibility and show your readers you care about anything other than views and revenue.

    Hi sally

    Would whipped topping from a spray can work here? Or the homemade whipped cream? Saw two different answers in the comments so wanted to be sure! Thanks!


    • Sallyreplied on December 20th, 2015 at 10:22 am

      Personally? I suggest homemade whipped cream, not the spray can stuff.

    Hi Sally! I an trying to prepare your ice cream pie. And I have been surprised why cookie dough doesn’t need to be baked as it contains the flour. Is it normal only to freeze the dough without baking?

    Thank you!


    • Sallyreplied on February 27th, 2016 at 4:25 pm

      I wouldn’t say it’s “normal” but that’s just how I do it for the cookie dough taste.

    Have you ever made this with any other ice creams?

    I prefer chocolate over vanilla


    • Sallyreplied on March 12th, 2016 at 5:38 pm

      It’d be fantastic with chocolate ice cream.

    also should you mix some of the chocolate chips in with the ice cream and cool whip

    would it be better if made with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and the little pieces of cookie dough so it has extra chocolate chip cookie dough pieces

    This is in my freezer right now! I just made it for the first time. We just got a new refrigerator
    last week with a bigger freezer. I never had room before to store frozen desserts. (this could be dangerous!). We are having friends over tonight to share. I can’t wait to try it.

    Actually, I always thought it was OK to eat raw cookie dough as long as there were no eggs in it. As I write this, however, several brqnds of flour have been recalled. ..39 cases of e-coli have been reported. After questioning what these people ate, it’s been discovered that they ate something with flour in it.  Flour is made from wheat. .which is grown outside and subject to bacteria. If you eat raw flour,is as bad as eating raw eggs. They have been announcing on the news not to eat cookie dough. Just putting that out there.
