Take your cookie cake game to the next level with this cowboy cookie cake! Trying to frost layered cakes can be a time-consuming pain, but this cake is quick and hassle-free. All you have to do is bake 4 giant cookies and slap some frosting on them! Once you make the dough, divide it into 4 equal dough balls. Then, flatten the dough into nice circles (about 1/2 inch thick) on baking sheets. After you bake them and let them cool, they're ready to frost and eat! The cowboy cookie layers are filled with chocolate, coconut, walnuts, and oats, and are even more delicious combined with the cream cheese frosting!

Instructions

Cookie Layers

Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla one at a time and mix until light and fluffy.
Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until combined.
Gently stir in the chocolate chips, oats, coconut, and walnuts (again, just until combined).
Split the dough into 4 even balls and place them on baking sheets, leaving at least 3 inches between each ball (I'd limit to 1-2 cookies per baking sheet). Press down on the dough to flatten them slightly (~½ inch height).
Bake until the edges are slightly tan (about 13-17 minutes). If they aren't perfectly round, run a flat edge around the side to form a nice circle.
Let them cool on the pan until they're firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Mix together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until very well combined.
Alternately layer the cookies with frosting once the cookies have completely cooled.
