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. Holy moly, Sally! This truly is a cookie dough lover’s dream! I’m absolutely wild and nutty about chocolate chip cookie dough and this ice cream pie of yours ROCKS! I’m working on my own spin on “chocolate chip cookie dough” (it’s not frozen) and cannot wait to share later this summer or early fall. Thanks for sharing, girl! Pinning to all group boards possible! xo

  2. This is just too good! I’m having one of those moments where I wish I could reach into the computer screen and grab a slice. You’re a genius!

  3. Woah! I was curious what you were going to do with the cookie dough balls when I saw them on IG. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this! Totally need a big slice.

  4. Such a great idea. Yum! And I love the simplicity of your photos… they look great! Totally showcasing the goods. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Erin! The photos had to be simple. I was SO rushed on this photoshoot because the cake was melting about 2 minutes after I pulled it out of the freezer.

      1. Haha that’s funny! You definitely can’t tell they’re rushed. You are skilled! I had a similar melting experience with the recipe I’m posting tomorrow (Tuesday) evening but I think yours would have made a melty mess quicker than mine! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. OMG this looks insane. I actually love cookie dough and what such a creative way to add it onto a dessert. You are giving lots of ideas ๐Ÿ™‚ Gosh I wish I could dig my teeth into this treat!!

  6. oh my goodness. i’ve been away moving into a new house over the past week, and coming back to this is making me wish my kitchen was ready for baking already!!

  7. That is some true dedication rolling all of those teeny cookie dough balls! What a perfect summer dessert! Anything that begins with an Oreo cookie crust can’t be bad.

  8. Internet has been down the past week, so I haven’t been able to comment! But now I can:) Saw the title and went “Yep, that would be me.” I’ve done the little cookie dough balls before, but I have just sprinkled them over ice cream. Love the Oreo crust with the cookie dough! I’ve been making ice cream pies this week . . . they are SOOOO addicting!

    1. Haha “yep that would be me” – so funny, Mary Frances! And oh no about your internet. I would be a hot mess if mine went down!

  9. This looks so good and easy to make. Can’t wait to try yet another great recipe. I hope I get more of those cookie dough balls in the dessert than popped in mah mouth!

  10. Wow, I don’t know how you made this pie without eating all the cookie dough bites before hand. It looks amazing!

  11. Mmmm, I think cookie dough ice cream has to be one of my favourite flavours. I’ve never had an ice cream pie before so this looks really interesting! x

  12. So much cookie dough!! You should’ve made it with cookie dough ice cream too for complete overload haha.

    1. I thought about that, but this way was just easier. My favorite cookie dough ice cream hasn’t been on sale near me recently!

  13. This sounds absolutely perfect for me! I was the one who tore through the entire carton of cookie dough ice cream just to scoop out all of the pieces of cookie dough. And there were NEVER ENOUGH! You’ve clearly come up with the solution, Sally! Another amazing treat to add to the list ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. You have solved my dilemma – my boyfriend LOVES cookie dough ice cream but there are never enough cookie dough lumps in it, AND his birthday is coming up, so this is the perfect, cookie-dough overload solution – thank you thank you!!

  15. Oh. Me. Goodness. I just fell down – could you please help me up with a piece of this pie? I love all the little sweet balls of dough riddled throughout, and I love how thick it looks like you made the crust (I’m a big, big fan of thick crusts on ice cream pies like this). I love everything about this pie, basically. The End.

    1. Yes! The crust is super thick. It’s sort of the best part. But not really, the cookie dough is! I love thick crusts too Meagan!

  16. Those cookie dough balls are seriously the cutest things I have ever seen!! You are so right, it is SUCH a letdown when cookie dough ice cream only has a few measly hunks of dough! This cake is like a dream come true!

  17. Cookie dough is seriously dangerous…I don’t know if there is anything better that good cookie dough. This sounds amazing!

  18. OMG!!! I was just eating some cookie dough ice cream last night and I was like, Where is all the cookie dough??!!! This looks absolutely amazing, I am so making this for the next occasion…Tuesday is a good occasion, don’t ya think! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks Sally for all your great recipes, awesome descriptions and beautiful amazing pictures. You are a great inspiration to me! Please don’t stop!! ๐Ÿ™‚
