Quadruple layer cookie cake

A sugar-chocolate chip-brownie-peanut butter cookie cake with marshmallow fluff frosting

Yup, you read that right. Quadruple layer cookie cake. It was what I had planned to make if the Bills were in the Super Bowl. And even though they came up a game short, I made this cake anyways because it is the Super Bowl. The NFL is the one sport that managed to get through it’s entire season without a single cancelled game. For this treat, I went with a peanut butter cookie layer, flourless brownie layer, chocolate chip cookie layer and a sugar cookie layer. I used a marshmallow fluff frosting. I actually make the peanut butter, sugar and chocolate chip cookie doughs the day before and took them out of the fridge about an hour before baking to get them to room temperature so they were easier to press into the pans. If you use a 9 inch cake pan, your baking time will be less. Remember to preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before you start baking. And make sure you don’t overbake your cookie cakes. This cake is quite heavy, so make sure your container is sturdy. You may have to hold it from the bottom when transporting it, or cut the cake ahead of time.
