The Ice Cream Pie that has it all

There are some recipes you just know are going to be amazing before you ever even give them a try. This Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie definitely falls into that category. If you’re doubting, let’s run this past a simple checklist:

  • Cookie dough — check
  • Ice cream — check

That’s it. That’s the list. What else is there? All you cookie dough lovers, give a shout out in the comments below! You’re going to love this pie!

Cookie dough ice cream pie will have everyone begging for more.

Is raw cookie dough safe to eat?

Before we go any further, we need to clarify that there are two kinds of cookie dough used in this ice cream pie. The first is a pre-packaged roll of refrigerated cookie dough that will be BAKED as the crust — so it is totally safe to eat.

In traditional cookie recipes, raw cookie dough is not safe to consume. In those recipes it is the eggs you need to be careful about as you fight the temptation to sneak and un-baked taste. Uncooked eggs can cause food poisoning if they are contaminated with harmful bacteria. Once baked, those concerns go away.

Before you worry, the raw cookie dough crumbles in this recipe (thanks Center Cut Cook!!) is egg-free, so feel free to indulge!

Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie combines so many favorites into one delicious bite.

Cookies, cookies and more cookies!

In case the idea of chunks of (safe) raw cookie dough wasn’t enough to get your salivary glands going, the crust itself is a giant chocolate chip cookie! It’s the perfect shell in which to house the creamy, cookie-doughy goodness that will be folded in after the crust is baked.

Variations to try

Even though we are raving about the cookie dough crust, there is room for variations within this recipe as well.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Crusted Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie

(tap # to scale)


  • For the Pie Crust
  • 1 16.5 oz package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough I used Pillsbury
  • For the Edible Cookie Dough
  • 1/2 cup of butter softened (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 TBSPs milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • For the Ice Cream
  • 1 8 oz container of cool whip
  • 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Press the packaged cookie dough into the pie pan to make the "pie crust." Spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray and gently push the foil into the pan over the dough. Weigh it down with dry beans or coins. Cook for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and leave the foil on until the crust has completely cooled. Then remove the coins (or beans) and very very gently pull off the foil.
  • While the pie crust is baking, begin making the edible cookie dough that will go in the ice cream. Beat together the butter and the brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in 1 tsp vanilla and the salt. Then slowly add the flour until fully combined, scraping down as needed.
  • Finally beat in the milk and gently stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Line a 10 by 15 inch pan with wax paper and press the edible cookie dough into it so it is one big flat piece. Refrigerate for an hour (or until your pie crust is cooled).
  • When the crust is cooled and free of coins, beans, and aluminum foil, take the edible cookie dough out of the refrigerator. Cut it in half. Then cut each half into small bite sized pieces and set aside the two piles.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cool whip and sweetened condensed milk. Stir in 1 tsp of vanilla. Then gently mix in one pile of cut edible cookie dough. Pour the mixture into the pie pan over the crust. Top with the other half of edible cookie dough bits.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and freeze overnight. Before serving, allow to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes.

    Love this recipe! Just put it in the freezer to set up and chill! Did just realize though that I forgot to add the vanilla to the condensed milk and cool whip- do you think it will still taste good? Hope it does!! :/ thanks for the great recipe!

    • Lisa Longley says

      So glad you are pumped about it, Wade! Honestly, I think it will still be GREAT! The vanilla adds something, but not so much that you won’t like the pie without it :) Enjoy!

  3. Heather says

    I’m a little confused by the recipe. If you use package of cookie dough as the crust in Step 2, how do you use it as the filling later (Step 7 – 9)? Does the recipe use 2 packs of cookie dough or am I missing something?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Heather! Nope, just one pack of cookie dough. It becomes the crust. Then you make an edible cookie dough (I think around step 4 until step 6) and that is used for the filling

  4. Breanna says

    This recipe does not make sense at all (instruction wise). It tells you to bake the cookie dough in the pan, remove it.. then to line cookie dough along foil and cool it.. then cut cookie dough into different piles.. this recipe is not clear enough to be understood.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Well hi there Breanna! You sound frustrated. I’m really sorry that you struggled while reading this recipe. As you can tell from the recipe there is a whole lot of chocolate chip cookie involved in this recipe. The first part non-edible cookie dough that you buy from the store and use as the crust of the pie. The second part is an edible cookie dough that you make from flour, butter, brown sugar, etc. You mix that into the ice cream you make and pour it into the “pie crust” you’ve made. Make sense? I’ve updated the recipe with words like, “edible cookie dough” and “pie crust” to make the distinction more clear. If you should make this pie, I hope you enjoy it!
