This is one of my daughter’s all-time favorite desserts and is something she often chooses for her birthday treat.

This cheesecake features an egg-free cookie dough that’s totally safe to snack on and a super-easy but oh-so-tasty cream cheese filling. It’s delicious, fun and unique, and creamier than a baked cheesecake. It’s a family favorite and I hope you enjoy it!

No-Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake

  • For the Cookie Dough:
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine (That is 1 and 1/2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (You can use regular chocolate chips if you don’t have mini!)
  • For the Cheesecake:
  • 1 8 oz. brick cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 8 oz. tub whipped topping
Serving Size:
8 pieces
Prep: 15 min. Chill: 1 hour
You’ve Got This


  1. Cream together the butter and sugars. Mix in the vanilla, flour, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. (And truth be told, I don’t measure the chocolate chips. More or less won’t mess it up!
  2. Press about 2/3 of the cookie dough into an 8 or 9-inch pie pan, making sure to press it firmly up against the sides. I spray the side of a measuring cup with cooking spray and use that to get nice and smooth, even edges. Set the remaining cookie dough aside.
  3. Refrigerate the cookie dough crust.
  4. To make the cheesecake filling, beat the cream cheese in a stand mixer (or with a hand-held mixer) until smooth.
  5. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
  6. Fold in the whipped topping.
  7. With the remaining cookie dough, make small bite-sized balls of cookie dough and fold these into the cheesecake filling OR place on top.
  8. Fill the cookie dough crust with the cheesecake filling and refrigerate until ready to serve. (Refrigerate for at least an hour or pop into the freezer for a firmer dessert. I’ve done it both ways.
