I certainly hope you like chocolate chip cookie dough.ย 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.ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk or cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (160g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 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)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Keep chilled in the freezer up until you serve the pie.

  1. Oh my, this looks to DIE for, Sally! I know exactly what you mean when you have that bite of cookie dough ice cream and all you get is one bit of cookie dough. -_- But this looks like a cookie dough-lovers dream! Beautiful, as usual. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. Loving the ratio of cookie dough to ice cream. You nailed it, girl! (PS- fab mani!)

  3. So amazing! I know just what you mean about ice cream with all of three cookie-dough pieces in it. A few years ago my friends got me a “cookie dough” ice cream cake from a chain ice cream place, and it just had a few pieces on top. So disappointing! This looks adorable and so delicious. I love the photograph of the whole pie…it looks like a pillow! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. THanks Caley! This ice cream pie was SO difficult to shoot! It was melting everywhere and I had to shoot it within 10 minutes. So rushed! But thank you so much. So much cookie dough inside!

  4. OMG! I need to make this! I am speechless! This just looks so amazing!! My gosh girl, you have outdone yourself! Time to go make your dough balls!! Bye…

  5. Wow, I absolutely love this recipe! I love that you made your own cookie dough and combined two classic flavours with an Oreo crust. I totally agree about not having enough cookie dough- I used to feel that way about cookie dough blizzards! This is a super fun summer dessert, love it!

  6. Ice cream cake is one of my favorite treats, but with the cookie dough addition, I’m going to fall madly in love with this!

  7. YESSSS! I’m totally the girl who fishes out all the cookie dough from the ice cream lol so this pie looks like absolute heaven!!

  8. Wow, what a treat! This looks devilishly delicious, I am super impressed by your ability to create such decadent treats. Must find an occasion to make this for soon. Gah! Cannot get over how much fun this ice cream pie is ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. These photos are so sharp and bright and absolutely drool worthy! I love that this I overloaded with cookie dough bites! Not having enough cookie dough is why I usually hate cookie dough ice cream- not a problem here though!

    1. definitely not a problem AT ALL! And thank you for the compliment on the photos. This photoshoot was so, so rushed because the ice cream was melting everywhere.

  10. Wow, that’s a lotta cookie dough. But I LOVE cookie dough. I can’t get over the cookie dough ice cream thing. There’s got to be like.. two tablespoons of dough in a whole pint of ice cream. xD it’s so ridiculous.
    This is such a beautiful ice cream pie! You always do such a great presentation with your creations. ๐Ÿ™‚
    My freezer is too tiny to hold a cake pan. *cries* But I’m thinking this might turn out in a bread pan as a cookie dough lover’s loaf? Doesn’t that sound amazing. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks for sharing this amazing looking stuff!

    1. Hi Abbie! Yes, there certainly is NOT enough cookie dough in cookie dough ice cream. This ice cream pie is not lacking! Let me know if you try it another size pan. Enjoy!

  11. Thanks so much Colleen! I was not a fan of the photos. The photoshoot was so rushed because of all the melting! I really appreciate it!

  12. How would you make it with homemade ice cream and homemade whipped cream? As soon as I saw this I now want cookie dough, sadly I don’t have any chocolate chips ๐Ÿ™ Oh well, I will have to make this soon.

    1. Lauren, homemade ice cream could work, but I fear the whipped cream wouldn’t set up properly. If you make it, let me know!

  13. Oh my goodness! It’s a good thing there are so many of those little dough balls, because they would be all too easy to snack on! This looks like a cookie dough lover’s heaven. (aka my heaven)

  14. Stunning. I pinned it 3 times. Once to my frozen board, one to a big group board, and one to my cookie dough board.


    You are the queen of frozen and nobake pies and cheesecake. I never make this kind of stuff. I need to start!

    All.those.little.balls. Honestly, I know how much work that is. That was my blog from 2009-10. Raw, nobake little balls. Lol. Seriously I could gobble up that whole tray of yours ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Wow. Sally, just wow!

    I do not have 3 boards to pin this to like Averie, but I do have 2!! Dessert and frozen! This is amazing and stunning. I honestly have no words other than I need to make this and wow!

  16. Oh man, Sally! This is just amazing. I’ve never wanted a pie more, I think! Absolutely gorgeous, decadent and I bet incredibly delicious. What a great summer treat! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Sarah, I was about 2 seconds away from a soupy mess with these shots. The photoshoot had to be split up because I had to refreeze the pie since it was melting. It was tough! But thank you so much for the compliment!

  17. STOOOPPPPP this is too good. I can’t. The only thing that would make this even better (as if that’s possible) is Nutella.

  18. Okay yeah I’m definitely making this as soon as I get my hands on some Cool Whip. I thought your peanut butter ice cream pie was good but this looks EVEN BETTER!

    1. Seriously LOVE that pb ice cream pie. But I may like this even better. Or it’s a tie. I can’t choose! Thanks Mimi.

  19. Fabulous photos Sally!
    I will have to warn myself before visiting again …
    Dear body…
    please prepare yourself for instant diabetes.

    1. Haha! Thanks for the compliment on the photos, that means a lot! This photoshoot was difficult because the pie was melting everywhere!

  20. Okay….let me just take a moment of silence for that heavenly pie.
    I NEEED to make that! I am a huge cookie dough lover…cookie dough ice cream, cookies, raw cookie dough, everything cookie dough!

    And combining it with ice cream and crushed oreos?! It is seriously the perfect dessert!! Thank you for sharing this!!! It combines too many amazing things!

  21. OMG. I love cookie dough. I think I’m going to have to make this or one of your other fantastic cookie dough recipes this week!!!!! YUM!

  22. That looks really really delicious! I LOVE cookie dough, oreos and of course ice cream! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Now I have to translate the recipe into german…
    Best wishes
