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. 🙂

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. Wait—those little balls of cookie dough are the cutest thing ever! I would surely eat like a hundred before they made their way into this lovely pie. Mmmmmm.

  2. Looks awesome Sally! I have a similar recipe and it’s so yummy!! Love all that cookie dough! 🙂

  3. This is probably one of my favourite recipes that you’ve ever posted! I love cookie dough so much and I’m really pleased to see that this recipe doesn’t contain eggs. I can’t wait to try it out 🙂

  4. This pie looks so delicious- I love all the tiny balls of cookie dough! Just wondering, do you think that I could use homemade sweetened whipped cream instead of the cool whip, or do you think that it wouldn’t be stable enough? I know you said that you could leave it out, but I imagine that the texture would be much better with it!

  5. Sally…WOW, just wow. Ice cream cake is my favorite, cookie dough is my favorite and oreo crust is my favorite! In so much love!! Not to mention all of those big hunks of cookie dough!! Ugghhh, can’t.stop.drooling.

  6. Wooahhhhh!! This is like pure heaven for me. I absolutely adore cookie dough and ice cream and cookie dough ice cream…. anything with the word “cookie” in!

  7. This looks amazing. Don’t know if I could handle making it though with all of those little cookie dough balls around me. I would be so tempted to eat them all.

  8. The more cookie dough, the better!! Thanks so much Liz, I can’t wait to go to the lake. Hope you are enjoying summer!

  9. Such a gorgeous pie! Oreo cookie crust and cookie dough? Doesn’t get much better. I’ve actually been eating a lot of cookie dough ice cream lately but since it never seems to have enough cookie dough I grab some frozen dough to eat with each bite! This pie doesn’t look like it lacks cookie dough though 🙂

  10. I just made this cookie dough ice cream pie for my friends last weekend…I’ve never seen a pie be devoured so quickly! They thought I was the queen…of course I said, “Don’t look at me, this is all Sally!”

    1. hahaha! Well I am SO glad it was such a big hit. This is the best cookie dough dessert ever, definitely a favorite 🙂 Thanks Megan!

  11. Hi Sally,
    I love this recipe! I made it ‘just because’ a few weeks ago and my husband, two stepsons and I couldn’t get enough! I am planning on making it again for my stepson’s birthday next weekened but turning it into an ice cream cake rather than a pie and making the oreo cookie crust just a fudgey-cookie crumble as a layer inside the cake. Soo, I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what to use as frosting for this? I’ve searched online and have read that a lot of people just use vanilla ice cream mixed with cool whip as the entire cake frosting and then using a traditional frosting to pipe on the decorations.

    Let me know if you can!
    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Melissa! So happy you enjoyed this! For your cake next weekend – I suggest using buttercream to pipe some decorations on top, rather than frosting the entire cake. Here is my favorite vanilla buttercream recipe:

  12. Hi Sally,

    In India we don’t get cool whip that ur recipe states….instead I have double cream which can be whipped. Please help as I want to make it for my anniversary tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Sneha – you may certainly use homemade whipped cream. I’d say about 2 cups cream, whipped. Make sure you beat it until it forms soft peaks.

  13. This was my first time ever making any recipe involving ice cream.
    I probably almost broke a few knifes trying to cut it because I am very impatient when I want my chocolate I want it NOW. Ever fork full of this was a glorious combination of chocolate chips, cookie dough and creamy ice cream. It was HUGE too! I’m surprised it didn’t break a shelf in my freezer.

      1. Thanks Sally! You could also use a kind of chocolate shell that would act as the wrapper. Maybe dark chocolate?

  14. 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!!!

      1. 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?

  15. 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!

    1. 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:

  16. 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?

    1. 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.

  17. 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?

    1. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!
