The recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is perfect to make the cookie crust (18cm-7inch springform pan is the size pan I’ve used but a 20cm-8inch works well too!) and 5 mini chocolate chip cookies for decoration. Every mini cookie is made with 1 tbsp of cookie dough.

I shot this video during a hot Summer here in Italy so I’ve used a chilled bowl to whip the cream for preparing the ice cream.

I placed the bowl for about 15 minutes in freezer before pouring in it the chilled whipping cream and whip it until stiff peaks.

If you live in a hot climate, could be helpful to use a dairy-free or longlife whipping cream that are a bit more stabile than fresh dairy whipping cream.

After piping unsweetned whipped cream decoration on top of the frozen cake, I put the cake in freezer for about 15 minutes to chill and set whipped cream before placing the cookies on top.
