Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie

I can’t believe almost a week has gone by since my last post! I just got back from an extended weekend trip to NYC with my mom and we were enjoying the city so much that I didn’t quite get around to posting this recipe while we were there. We’ve been meaning to take this trip for a few years now and had an amazing time. I can’t wait to go through my pictures and post a little recap of all the foodie spots we visited!

I’ve been dreaming about cookie dough a lot lately and I think the only thing better than eating cookie dough straight out of the bowl is enjoying it in a dessert! This is a really easy no bake recipe that comes together in no time, but is just incredible with the perfect ratio of cookie dough to ice cream.  This is one of my go to dessert recipes when we have people over because it’s a huge crowd pleaser. I love the pie with mint chocolate chip ice cream (which I’m sort of sad is now always natural and no longer the bright green color I enjoyed during my childhood!), but feel free to substitute your favorite ice cream flavor.

  1. OMG! It’s like you’re reading my mind! I was just thinking about oreo cookie ice cream and chocolate chip cookie dough tonight and was wishing I had both in fridge/freezer. I didn’t have or eat either :( And then I see your blog post and I am now grinning from ear-to-ear. That looks so good! LOVE IT! And I love the hot fudge topping!

  2. Oh wow! This looks amazing!!! I absolutely love mint chocolate chip ice cream and cookie dough – so together they must be incredible, especially with the little pool of hot fudge! And I agree with you – I miss the green color!!!

  3. I am wondering if I have time to make this tomorrow. If I do, this is going to be a special dessert. Lots of company coming. If I do find the time, I will get back to you. If I don’t, it will wait for another special day. Thanks for this.

  4. This is one of the most decadent ice cream desserts I’ve seen! I can’t wait to give it a try and I’m going to make minis using my mini cheesecake pan! I just know this is going to be awesome! It’s still in the 90’s here so it’s perfect! Thanks for sharing!

    Can’t wait to read about your trip to NYC! Happy Friday!

  5. Going to NYC with moms can be really fun! I went to NYC with mine about 3 years ago… as she lives in a place where there are not even 1000 residents… guess she was a bit shocked by home many people there are in NYC 😛

    Your pie looks so good! That makes me want to eat cookie dough :)

  6. Yum! Ice cream cakes are my absolute favorite and cookie dough is one my favorite flavors of ice cream, so this can’t get any better! It looks amazing!

  7. Glad you had a great trip with Mom :) I’m looking forward to the pics, I’ve been away from NYC for a year already… geez times fly.

    I can see why this is your go-to dessert. I mean what’s not to totally dig about this? Cookie batter is one of the best creations in food history!

  8. a cookie dough ice cream pie sounds fabulous, but you’ve taken my breath away with your inspired use of mint ice cream. that really sells the thing for me, not that it needed any help. masterful work, kerstin!

  9. I think cookie dough is always somewhere in the back of my mind, invading my subconscious with its deliciousness. This looks like an ideal dessert! Definitely a crowd pleaser. Or just a Joanne-pleaser because if I made it, I’m not sure that I would share.

    I’m so glad you had fun in NYC! You should have let me known you were here…we could have met at least for coffee or something! Where do you go/what did you eat?!?!?

  10. This does look like it would be a crowd pleaser! Looking forward to reading about your NYC experience. I love NY!!!
    It was really nice to meet you at apple picking today :)

  11. I’m so glad you had a good time on your trip. I have never been to NYC, so I can’t wait to vicariously experience it through your pictures :) Cookie dough + ice cream sounds like heaven right now. Love it. Beautiful photo, too! Glad you’re back.

  12. Thanks everyone, cookie dough and ice cream are just such a great combo!

    Joanne – I know, I wish we would have had a bit more time! I’m definitely emailing you the next time I’m in NY :)

  13. I can’t believe I found this recipe. I was just looking for a generic ice cream cake recipe but was lucky enough to not only find this great ice cream pie recipe but stumble upon this entire website.

  14. I made your wonderful Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie this weekend, it was like a dream come true. One of my favorite ice cream flavors is chocolate chip cookie dough; only, there’s never enough cookie dough in the ice cream! So, a whole yummy layer of it between the crust and the ice cream elevated THIS ice cream pie above most any other! I just have one question: When I removed the pie from the freezer, even after it sat for a few minutes, the cookie dough layer was SO HARD, I practically had to use a machete to cut through it! How do you soften the dough enough to cut it, without the ice cream being TOO soft? You may answer directly to my email if you wish.
