{Almost} No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie

I’m officially obsessed. Obsessed with cookie dough. Since making those Cookie Dough Brownie Bites a few weeks ago, I’ve been dreaming about making some more of the cookie dough frosting. Since it was my best friend’s birthday last week, I knew I wanted to make her something, but not a cake (she’s not really a huge cake fan). Well, once I thought up this pie, I knew it would be perfect for her. I mean how could you turn down chocolate, cookie dough, cheesecake and whipped cream?!

There may seem like there are a lot of steps to the recipe, but it really came together quite quickly. The only thing I had to bake was the crust for a whole 8 minutes. The rest was just mixing ingredients together and layering in the pie tin.
The only chocolate cookies I could find at the store were Teddy Grahams, which worked perfectly for the crust. I used our Vitamix to crush up the cookies.
The cookie dough is the same as the one I used in the brownie recipe, which means it’s safe to eat (which could be a good or bad thing ;)
For the cheesecake filling, I made my life easy and just used the Jello No-Bake Mix. I added chocolate chips to it, which I really liked.
I didn’t use the graham cracker crust that came with it, but I actually doubled the below recipe for cookie dough and whipped cream, so I made some bars using the graham cracker crust. It was really good as well – not quite as rich as the chocolate crust pie.

{Almost} No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie

Ingredients

    For the Crust
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate cookies, crushed (I used Chocolate Teddy Grahams)
  • 6 Tbsp butter, melted
  • For the Cookie Dough
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temp
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • For the Cheesecake Filling
  • 1 package No-Bake Cheesecake mix
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • For the Topping
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree. In a small mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cookies and melted butter. Spoon mixture into a 9 inch pie pan and press firmly into the bottom and sides. Bake in oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  2. For the cookie dough, using an electric or stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar at medium speed. Next, add vanilla and beat until combined. Using a wooden spoon (or your fingers!), stir in the flour and salt until becomes dough-like. Add the milk and beat until light and fluffy. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. For the cheesecake, pour the milk into a mixing bowl, then dump in the cheesecake mix. Combine, using an electric or stand mixer, on low for 30 seconds and then beat on medium for 3 minutes. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. When crust is cool, spoon cookie dough into pie crust and press down to form an even layer, approximately ½ inch thick. Then, spoon cheesecake mixture on top of the cookie dough and level with a rubber spatula.
  5. To make topping, using an electric or stand mixer, beat the whipped cream until soft fold forms. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over cheesecake layer and level using a rubber spatula. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
