Ice Cream Cookie Pie

Post image for Ice Cream Cookie Pie

I can’t explain what possessed me to bake an enormous chocolate chip cookie in the bottom of a pie plate and then pile it high with hot fudge, mint chip ice cream, whipped cream, toasted almonds and chocolate shavings. I could try to convince you that I was motivated by it being Pi(e) Day, but seeing as 3.14 came and went a few days ago that reason wouldn’t really be valid. Or I could blame the green ice cream on St. Patrick’s Day coming up. These would only be excuses.

The truth is…I made this Ice Cream Cookie Pie because I knew it would be so good!

I freely admit it, I completely gave in to an wholly hedonistic desire on my part to make a cookie sundae. I’m borderline embarrassed about it, but I have a sneaky suspicion that there may be some others of you out there who think this would be a good idea too. In fact, I know there are – a few have been to my house this week to help eat this thing.

Layering on the good stuff

I’ve been dreaming about ways I could execute this pie ever since I found a recipe for a cookie-crusted ice cream pie on the back of a package of store-bought chocolate chip cookies almost two years ago. I knew I’d want to make a few modifications – namely I’d want to bake my own cookie crust rather than press the store-bought cookies into the base, and I’d prefer to whip my own cream than to use “frozen whipped topping”. I thought about making my own hot fudge and ice cream as well, but I didn’t want to spend the entire weekend putting this pie together.

Ice Cream Cookie Pie

If you like cookies and ice cream, this is your pie. Maybe the cookie portion came out a little thicker than I’d envisioned. Oh no, too much chocolate chip cookie…yeah, I didn’t fret over this too much. It’s a decadent beast, but I’ll tell you what, I saw nothing but smiles on any of our faces as we dove into it.

It’s pretty safe to assume that I would be able to finish this whole pie in one sitting.

I’ve made a grasshopper pie that looks much like this, but the cookie base takes it over the top! I’ll have to try it this way next time…

Any tips for baking at high altitude (5000 feet)? I can’t wait to try this!


Kathy March 23, 2011 at 7:58 PM

Hi Erin – I’ve done some asking around and I’ve been told you often need to lower the temperature when baking at higher altitudes and let things bake for a bit longer.


Megan March 19, 2011 at 8:16 PM

I’m thinking this was a GREAT idea! 😉


Jenn@eatcakefordinner March 20, 2011 at 8:01 PM

Oh yeah, I would definitely eat this!


Mackenzie@The Caramel Cookie March 23, 2011 at 4:11 PM
