Cookie Dough Pie

I just turned 21.

No, wait, that was over 5 years ago, now.  I could’ve sworn it was just last month or so, but somehow my sister, who is almost six years my junior, is celebrating her 21st birthday today, so it must not have been quite so recently that I blew out 21 candles.  This is very strange and confusing, and a little unnerving, but I never have been very good with math. Or keeping track of my age, evidently.

Regardless, I’m incredibly excited about Jaclyn’s birthday — maybe even more excited than she is.  We’re going out together this weekend for her first legal drink, and while I had intended to create some sort of booze-infused beverage or dessert in honor of her 21st, she had a very specific, very non-alcoholic, request for me, instead.

A Cookie Dough Pie.

No Bake Cookie Dough Pie

I honestly hate making pies because I hate photographing them.  My slices are always sloppy, I don’t know how to style them to take a pretty picture, and I can’t make a neat crust to save my life.

But I agreed, and after a few rounds of taste testing we have here the perfect Chocolate Cookie Dough Pie, which is definitely now my favorite pie and beats any birthday cake (except maybe this one).

No Bake Cookie Dough Pie

I did my best to pack this pie with cookie dough without completely overdoing it and without making cookie dough the only thing that you taste.  There’s a decadent layer of chocolate ganache that covers the crust and holds the cookie dough firmly in place on the base (see above).  I then covered the ganache and cookie dough with a light but deliciously chocolaty filling, and topped everything off with a homemade whipped cream (which is the best kind of whipped cream).

Jaclyn (and the rest of my siblings) strictly requested that everything be from scratch, which is something I usually like to honor anyway when making my desserts, but it does make for quite a few dishes.

If you want to cheat, you can substitute a large pre-made Oreo crust and use Cool Whip instead of making your own whipping cream.  No, it won’t be as good, but there will be fewer dishes.  Your choice!

Chocolate Filling

  • To make your pie filling, beat together cream cheese and reserved chocolate ganache. Gradually stir in powdered sugar until completely combined. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl to ensure ingredients are well-combined.
  • In a separate, clean, bowl, use an electric mixer to whip heavy cream to stiff peaks.
  • Fold whipped cream into chocolate/cream cheese mixture until completely combined
  • Gently spread filling over cookie dough.

Homemade Whipped Cream

  • Before serving, prepare whipped cream by combining heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a clean large bowl.
  • Whip until stiff peaks form. Spread over prepared pie and top with remaining cookie dough balls. Cut and serve.
