Cookie Monster Pie
You guys…I’m SO excited about this Cookie Monster Pie! Well, it’s actually a no bake cheesecake, so it’s kind of like a pie-cheesecake hybrid. But by any name, this is an AWESOME treat!
Usually it takes a little bit of time to prepare a recipe blog post. There’s photo editing, creating the printable card, typing everything and proofreading it, etc. etc.
Well…I was too excited to sit on this recipe, so I got it up as quickly as possible!! So if you notice any typos, feel free to let me know, but just understand that it’s only because I was typing as fast as I could!
What Does it Taste Like?
If you’re wondering what Cookie Monster Cheesecake tastes like, imagine a cookies and cream cheesecake…on steroids! It’s got cookies, cookies, and more cookies!
And then we mix those cookies into an easy, no bake cheesecake batter…and then top it off with MORE cookies.
And of course it’s bright blue!!
Isn’t this just cookies and cream cheesecake?
Ok, party pooper! (Just kidding!)
Perhaps you’re wondering, why not just make a regular no bake cookies and cream cheesecake? You totally could do that by leaving out the blue food coloring — it would taste just as amazing!
However, there’s just something about that vibrant blue hue that is super festive — I just love it!
This is such a fun dessert for birthdays and family gatherings, and it’s easy enough that kids can help make it too. There’s no baking, no cutting — just measuring and mixing. So grab the kiddos and the cookies and let’s get started!

PREP TIP: Since this is a no bake cheesecake, it requires a bit of time to chill and set. I’d recommend beginning your prep in the morning so it will be ready by evening. Or you can make the night before and it will be all ready for you the next day.
Start by preparing the crust:
- Combine graham crackers, sugar and melted butter in a mixing bowl.
- Scoop crust mixture into a 7-9 inch springform pan and pat down so it is even.
- Pack in the crust as much as possible, then place in freezer to chill while you make the cookies and cream cheesecake filling.
Next, prepare your cheesecake filling:
- Cream together cream cheese and sugar until smooth, using a hand mixer or stand mixer.
- In a separate bowl, use your mixer to whip the heavy cream until it’s thick and fluffy.
- Add whipped cream, vanilla, and food coloring to your bowl with the cream cheese and sugar mixture and stir until smooth and you achieve just the right shade of blue to your liking.
- Take about 2/3 of your cookies and break into slightly smaller pieces, then stir the broken cookies into your cheesecake batter.
- Pour batter into your springform pan on top of the crust and arrange the rest of your cookies on top of the cheesecake.
- Refrigerate for at least 10-12 hours.
TIP: To make the springform pan release easier (and for easier slicing), freeze for 15-20 minutes before serving.
Makes 8-10 servings.
