Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie

It’s a pie! It’s a cheesecake! It’s peanut butter cookie dough! It’s…the best pie ever.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie. It’s just like it sounds…but better.

Why is everything that’s cute come from a really expensive store?

Like, the time you looked at every single discount and low-priced (or heck, sanely-priced) furniture store for a new couch and finally found the one you’d been dreaming about at…Z Gallerie.

Or the time when you need that special something for the final touch of your living room. You can’t put your finger on it but you’ll know it when you see it, so you shop (without any luck) at every Homegoods and TJ Maxx and Target and trinket store where these such things are affordable and then you get the Pottery Barn catalogue and there it is, the wall hanging you’ve been looking for, on page 32.

And, my favorite, when you decide to buy a few new tops because you’re tired of wearing things you’re not comfortable in (i.e. trigger clothing) so you head to the mall and think, I’ll just stop in and peek at White House Black Market.

Hint: there is no “stopping in and peeking” at WHBM. You’ll try on a shirt (full-price) that will instantly (1) slim you (2) make your boobs look amazing and (3) perform magic in front of your eyes. Why can’t tanks from Old Navy do that?

Something else that performs magic? Pie with cookie dough.

Pie with cookie dough, no-bake cheesecake, and an Oreo crust. Oh, yes I did.

I loved this pie. I loved it so much that I had to give it away…missing a slice. Or two.

This cheesecake pie has everything I love in it.

1. An Oreo crust. That’s my favorite kind. You can make your own (recipe below) but I won’t judge you if you use the kind from the grocery store. I wanted to do that and I went all the way to the store…and they were out of Oreo crusts. I guess those are popular.

2. A peanut butter cookie dough layer. It’s eggless (of course). Just like a peanut butter cookie but without the egg and leavening. It’s the best part of the cookie, if you ask me.

3. A no-bake cheesecake layer. In fact, the whole pie is no-bake. I’m just getting you primed for no-bake summer.

Top all that with some fresh whipped cream (or Cool Whip) and you have a layered pie that blows your mind.

Not unlike all the things at Pottery Barn, Z Gallerie, and White House Black Market.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie

Yield: 10 slices

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie

Three fabulous layers go into this pie: an Oreo crust, a layer of eggless peanut butter cookie dough, and a layer of no-bake cheesecake. This pie is for the cookie dough and cheesecake lover!

Ingredients

    Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups Oreos, crushed (about 15 Oreos)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • (or you can use a store-bought cookie crust)
  • Cookie Dough
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Pinch salt, optional
  • 1 cup flour
  • Cheesecake
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (regular or low-fat)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Garnish
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • (or you can use Cool Whip)

Instructions

  1. Make the crust: mix crushed cookies and butter in a medium bowl. Press into a 9” pie plate. Chill until next step. Or, forego making your own and use a store-bought Oreo or Graham Cracker crust.
  2. Make the cookie dough: mix melted butter and peanut butter in large bowl with a hand mixer. Beat in sugars, vanilla, and milk. Slowly mix in flour. Place 2 tablespoons of cookie dough in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Press remaining cookie dough into the prepared crust. Do this carefully - you don’t want to wreck the crust! Place back in the refrigerator.
  3. Make the cheesecake layer: wipe out bowl and wipe off mixer beaters. Beat cream cheese with hand mixer until smooth. Mix in sugar and vanilla. Spread carefully on top of cookie dough in prepared crust. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Before serving, make whipped cream. Beat heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Pipe as desired on pie. Break up remaining cookie dough pieces around the edges of the pie for garnish. (You can also use Cool Whip instead of making fresh whipped cream.)
  5. Store pie in refrigerator. A little slice goes a long way! (It’s very rich.)

    Why have I never been to White House Black Market?! Slimming, awesome boobs and general amazingness! I am in
    I just won’t tell my husband.
    Or, better yet, (since I should be honest with him) I’ll make this FREAKING AWESOME pie, get him into a food coma and then tell him! PERFECT

    I am not going to survive CookieDough week without gaining 20 lbs. The temptation to bake up a storm is overwhelming! This pie looks so beyond delicious! I just…I…I can’t…there are no words.

    I, too, have noticed that horrible fact that everything I love will only be found in an expensive store. Try as I might to find it at Marshalls. We have expensive tastes…it’s not our fault!

    Ugh, story of my liiiiiiifeee. The expensive stuff has magic built into it. It’s just a freakin’ sad fact of life. That’s precisely how I feel about every piece of Betsey Johnson I own. GAH.

    Also, I am in love with this pie. FANTABULOUS.

    Totally agree, I can never just “stop in and peek” at WHBM and the lovely ladies that work there always end up putting a super cute outfit together or pair a dress I am trying on with a gorgeous necklace and magically you fall in love with how you look and you forget about the price! ;) AND this pie is AMAZING…all my favorite things in one delicious cheesecake!

    Dorothy, you are SO full of brilliant ideas!! Oreos, PB, cheesecake, no-bake… With how dry it’s been, this summer is definitely going to be another hot one. Totally worth prepping early. I really hope you bought that top, even if it was a little pricey — cute clothes automatically make everything 1000x better!
