So, one day back in December 2016, I was blown away by your love of cookie dough. This No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake is one of my most popular recipes to this day! (Right up there with its friends Oven Fried Chicken, Baked Ziti and Hambburger Helper)

I was actually on a holiday, on a cruise ship with my family in the middle of the ocean when the video went live, and it was an instant hit. Every time I managed to log on to the internet I was stunned by how crazy it had gone!

So I’m not exactly sure why it’s taken me so long to come up with another cookie dough recipe for you.

But rest assured, I’m back, and just in time for your 4th of July celebrations! (And seriously, this ice cream cake is SO simple to make that you actually can have it ready for your party tonight)

I know some people are weirded out by raw flour (I’ll admit, it’s not going to stop me from consuming the occasional cookie dough dessert), so this time I actually tried heat treating the flour which is supposed to kill any dangerous bacteria. It worked fine, and you can find instructions for heat treating your flour right here, if this is something you want to do.

If you want to make this recipe even easier, you can absolutely use store bought ice cream, cookie dough or another of your favorite flavors, and if you want to get creative you can throw just about anything into it.

Hot fudge sauce, caramel, cookie chunks, Oreos, sprinkles, candies, peanut butter swirls, nuts…. you name it. Don’t feel like you have to stick to the recipe! (I myself am obviously not one for rule-following 😉 ) I find the cookie dough really quite sweet (this recipe is for true cookie dough lovers!), so I think plain vanilla works well, too, or a mocha or something with a bit of saltiness would be perfect.

    Hello, I don’t see The link about flour Heat treated. What happen of you make it with normal flour

  4. Gary Lloyd says

    I also missed something in the original recipe… It mentions using only 2/3 of the dookie dough in the pan and never mentions it again… Your explanation only confuses me more. I would love to have this mystery cleared before I make it for the kiddies.

    Made my 2nd ice cream cake today. What a hit! Its gone in no ty ime and hands down everyone loves it, even my pickiest eaters! Thank you for sharing.

  6. Brett says

    I tried this recipe and it turned out great. The only suggestion I would give is that the instructions do not include information about the whipped cream and cookie dough topping. The recipe says use only 2/3 of the cookie dough for the base, but it does not tell you to take out some of the whipped cream before adding the fudge sauce. And it does not include information about when to add the topping (before or after freezing). Other than that, it was a great recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
