Thick and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Cake with Cinnamon Maple Icing

Today I bring you another cookie cake. I was such a fan of my Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake that I decided to try another flavor. I love these cookie cakes and they are so easy to make. It was an easy decision to have my next cookie cake adventure be with an oatmeal cookie.

Thick and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Cake! With Cinnamon Maple Icing!

Truth be told, I am a huge oatmeal raisin cookie fan. I would take an oatmeal raisin cookie over a chocolate chip cookie any day. If it’s possible that taste buds are genetic then I totally get mine from my dad. I’ve been wanting to make this cookie cake for a number of weeks, but waited until last weekend to do it. Reason being? My dad was in town and I could give the it to him to eat. He is the biggest oatmeal raisin cookie fan and I knew I wouldn’t stand a chance of getting to it if I made it when he was around. And since I cannot control myself and keep from eating an entire cake in just a few days, it’s best if these things are given away.

There’s just something about the awesome cinnamon-y-ness (yes that’s a word 😉 ) of an oatmeal raisin cookie that I can’t live without. The perfect oatmeal raisin cookie screams cinnamon and raisins in every bite. And it MUST be chewy. No exceptions.

Given those guidelines, this cookie cake does not disappoint. When the rest of the fam tasted it, the main comment was “Oh, the cinnamon!” We are cinnamon lovers by nature. There’s no lack of it in this cookie cake. I also made sure to have plenty of raisins. What’s an oatmeal raisin cookie without plenty of raisins? An oatmeal cookie. And that’s not what this is. And last, but certainly not least, this baby is thick, soft and chewy. How could you not love it?

And for the icing on the cake – maple and cinnamon. I still wanted more cinnamon and maple is the perfect compliment. This icing is moan-worthy. Another thing I want to cover myself in. 🙂

Description

This Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Cake is a soft and chewy cookie that’s frosted with cinnamon maple frosting! A fun twist on the traditional cookie cake!


Ingredients

COOKIE CAKE

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup raisins

CINNAMON MAPLE ICING

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 12 tbsp water

Instructions

COOKIE CAKE:

1. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
2. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
3. Add cinnamon, flour, cornstarch and baking soda to a medium sized bowl and combine.
3. With the mixer on low speed, add flour mixture to butter and sugar mixture.
4. Stir in old fashioned oats and raisins. Dough will be thick.
5. Chill for at least 30 minutes or overnight. I very much recommend overnight.
6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7. Place parchment paper into the bottom of your 9 inch cake pan to help the cookie not stick.
8. Spread the dough out into the cake pan. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. The center may not look completely cooked, but it is.
9. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in the cake pan. Be careful of removing the cookie cake from the pan too soon. If it hasn’t cooled enough, the center will be very soft and easily breakable. I let mine cool for at least an hour before removing.

CINNAMON MAPLE ICING:

1. Beat the shortening and butter together until smooth.
2. Slowly add powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
3. Mix in the maple extract and cinnamon as well as desired amount of water to get the right consistency.

    This recipe is great! We used it for father’s day and it went perfectly! Definitely plan to use it in the future thank you for sharing it with us

    I made this for a birthday party and it was a hit! Everyone loved it! I replaced the raisins for chocolate chips. I also made a second version using gluten free 1:1 flour and it worked perfectly! Saving this recipe 🙂

    I plan on making for Vday & using a heart shaped pan! Gonna test it out today!!!

    What can be used besides shortening (butter Crisco)? Or just add more butter as shortening?

    I am so glad I found this recipe. My son was turning 39 and his favorite cookie is the Oatmeal Raisin , and when he was a kid we always bought him a cookie cake, I wanted to bring back a wonderful memory, but wanted to bake it myself. It turned out so good he thought I bought it. I used cranberry’s instead , but still chewy and full of flavor. Now I want to make one for my parents 🥰. Thank you again, and I fully encourage anyone to try this, very easy to make. Oh and for the frosting I did not use the Driscoll, I used all butter😋.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe! My husband loves oatmeal raisin cookies, so I’m going to surprise him with this cookie cake for his birthday. We have a couple very ripe bananas right now. Do you think that adding one or two of them would negatively affect the recipe?

    I’m making this tomorrow for my dad’s birthday. I just put the dough in the fridge, but I doubled the recipe since I’m going to try to make it two-tiered. How thick should the dough be once it’s pressed into the bottom the each pan??
