We loved this NO BAKE Cookie Dough Cheesecake — it’s made with edible cookie dough and an Oreo crust and is an extra special dessert for the holidays!

What is it about cookie dough that everyone loves?

I remember as a child consuming my fair share of cookie dough while I was supposed to be baking cookies for my mom (and as you already know, my Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies and my Mom’s Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are the real deal).

As I grew up though, I kind of stopped indulging in that forbidden treat.

I’m not sure why — maybe it was me trying to be a responsible adult in front of my children (also the reason I stopped chugging milk from jug immediately after).

I’m happy to say that although this cheesecake is totally indulgent, there are no raw eggs or any of that jazz that starts to concern some people when you mention consuming cookie dough. It’s all perfectly safe and incredibly delicious (if it’s a concern of yours, follow the instructions below to heat treat your flour)!

There is a layer of cookie dough under the cheesecake, cookie dough balls mixed throughout, and a pile of cookie dough balls on top — so it’s perfect with a cup of coffee (or tall glass of milk)!

NOTE: Consuming raw flour is not recommended by the FDA. If this is a concern of yours, follow these instructions to heat treat your flour before making the recipe.

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 300 grams bag chocolate sandwich cookies about 25 cookies

Cookie Dough

  • 5 tablespoons softened butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  • 24 oz cream cheese 3 packages
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream 35% cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • CrustCombine melted butter and cookies in a food processor and process until smooth and a ball forms.
  • Press into a 9″ Springform pan (or a pie plate or square pan works just fine, too!).
  • Cookie DoughIn a medium bowl, stir together softened butter and sugar with a spoon. Add salt, vanilla, milk, and flour and stir until a dough forms, adding a little more milk if needed. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Set in the refrigerator to chill.
  • CheesecakeIn a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, cream, sugar, and vanilla until completely smooth and fluffy — about 5 minutes on high speed.
  • Divide the cookie dough in thirds. Roll 1 third into a circle the size of your pan and lay on top of your crust (I do this between 2 sheets of wax paper and it works perfectly!). Roll remaining ⅔ into small balls. Stir half of the cookie dough balls into the cheesecake, and set the remaining in the fridge for garnish.
  • Top with cheesecake mixture and set in the refrigerator to chill until set, at least 4 hours.
  • Garnish cheesecake with whipped cream if desired and extra cookie dough balls. Serve and store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    I made the cheese cake and I don’t know what I did wrong it was so soft when I went to cut it almost fell apart..should I maybe use less whipping cream? I refrigerated it for a full day

  2. Alma Basile says

    Can I use Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough? If not I can’t find the no bake cookie dough in the stores!

  3. taydra collins says

    i just wanted to say thankyou for this recipe, i just finished making this , yes this late at night but it came out perfectly (: i will be following on instagram so i can try out more recipes !

  4. Linda says

    How much is 3 packages of cream cheese? I don’t know about you but in my country the packages tend to come in more than one size. 😉

  5. Fitri says

    I have kitchen aid mixer. Which hooks do you recommend to use? I have the paddle for the cream cheese or the wire for the whip cream. I don’t want the cheesecake to be runny if I use the paddle but if I use the wire, it won’t mix the cream cheese nicely and smooth.

    • Ashley Fehr says

      I use my whisk for most things because it does get nice and smooth — you just have to make sure your cream cheese is room temperature and whip it on high, scraping the sides occasionally.

  6. Victoria Clark says

    Hello.. I don’t know if someone ask this question before but where do you buy no-bake cookie dough?

  7. Amber says

    What did you use for the top decor in the picture? Just whipped cream with cookie dough on top? Or is it a different type of whipped cream for the top?

      • Jessica says

        Oh man! I only used the chocolate part and not the cream 🙁 mine also did not turn out as pretty as yours. Also when I was rolling the no bake cookie dough into balls they were so sticky that I had to put flour on my hands to be able to roll them into balls.

        • Ashley Fehr says

          Hi Jessica — how did it turn out in the end? Was the crust okay? I usually chill my cookie dough before I roll them for a bit so I will make a note. I hope it was still good and you enjoyed it!

          • Maggie says

            I accidentally used chocolate graham crackers instead of Oreos because I was confused. Was pretty crumbly, but still yummy. Filling was delicious, though!!

          • Maggie says

            I also found that the cookie dough layer slid apart from the crust. Did you have this issue? Maybe the Oreos made the difference here too.

  8. Melanie says

    Someone please help!! Is heavy whipping cream the same as whipping cream? I can’t find just plain “whipping cream.” Doesn’t heavy whipping cream turn into butter if you beat it for too long?

    • Breanna Cagley says

      I use a blender works just as good. Or put them in a ziplock bag and smash them with a rolling pin until small

        • Melanie says

          Can you please answer my whipping cream question? Can I use heavy whipping cream? I can’t find just plain whipping cream.

          • Alex says

            Heavy whipping cream just has more fat. Heavy whipping cream is what you want to use, it will make for a creamier cheesecake. Either one doesn’t matter.

          • Ashley Fehr says

            Hi Melanie. I try to answer questions as quickly as possible, but I am a stay at home mom of a 2 and 4 year old. I can’t be online to answer questions every hour of the day. You will need to use heavy cream, whipping cream or 35% cream — all the same. If you use a lighter cream it won’t whip up and you will not have cheesecake. Yes, it does turn into butter if you whip it too long. But you won’t 🙂

          • Jill says

            Whipping cream is referred to as whipping cream or heavy cream or 35% cream. You need 35% ‘fat’ in order for it to ‘whip’ do NOT whip too long as it will turn into butter. I watch and do just a little more after it seems to be firming up. I also add ‘whip it’ it is a small little package you find in the baking isle. You just dump it in at the start and it helps keep the whipped cream ‘firm’, otherwise it can get rather ‘sloppy’ after a day. You can also use a bit of gelatine mixed with water as an alternative to help ‘set’ the cream.. I add icing sugar (sifted) and a splash of vanilla before I whip. You can also add a liquor of your liking.. Look on on the internet under Pinterest.. many helpful hints and suggestions…

    So when you say 3 packages of cream cheese, you mean the 8 oz. package ps correct? So 27 ozs. Total? Thanks.

    • B. G. says

      3 Esslöffel geschmolzene Butter
      1 300g Beutel Schokolade Sandwich Cookies (ca. 25 Cookies)
      5 Esslöffel weiche Butter
      ¾ Tasse brauner Zucker
      ½ Teelöffel Salz
      1 Teelöffel Vanille
      3-4 Esslöffel Milch
      1½ Tassen Allzweckmehl
      ½ Tasse Mini-Schokolade-Chips
      3 Päckchen Frischkäse
      1 Tasse Schlagsahne
      1 Tasse Puderzucker
      1 Teelöffel Vanille

      Diese Anzeige melden

      Kombinieren Sie geschmolzene Butter und Kekse in einer Küchenmaschine und Prozess, bis glatt und ein Ball bildet.
      Drücken Sie in eine 9 “Springform Pfanne (oder eine Torte oder quadratische Pfanne funktioniert auch gut!).
      In einer mittleren Schüssel, rühren Sie weiche Butter und Zucker mit einem Löffel zusammen. Fügen Sie Salz, Vanille, Milch und Mehl hinzu und rühren Sie, bis ein Teig bildet und ein wenig mehr Milch addiert, wenn erforderlich. Rühren Sie in Schokoladenstückchen.
      Set in den Kühlschrank zu kühlen.
      In einer großen Schüssel, zusammen schlagen Frischkäse, Sahne, Zucker und Vanille bis vollständig glatt und flauschig – ca. 5 Minuten auf hoher Geschwindigkeit.
      Den Teig in Drittel aufteilen. Bringen Sie 1 Drittel in einen Kreis der Größe Ihrer Pfanne und legen Sie oben auf Ihre Kruste (Ich tue dies zwischen 2 Blatt Wachspapier und es funktioniert perfekt!). Rollen Sie ⅔ in kleine Kugeln. Rühren Sie die Hälfte der Plätzchenteigkugeln in den Käsekuchen und stellen Sie den Rest im Kühlraum für garnieren ein.
      Top mit Käsekuchen-Mischung und legen Sie in den Kühlschrank zu kühlen, bis gesetzt, mindestens 4 Stunden.
      Garnieren Käsekuchen mit Schlagsahne, wenn gewünscht und extra Cookie Teig Bälle. Serve und speichern Reste im Kühlschrank für bis zu 5 Tage.

      Looked for another cheesecake recipe and that specified 3 packages cream cheese (8oz each) so maybe if there is no other reply this would work…..
