Cookie Cake

Cookie Cake
makes 2 cookie cakes

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
4 Tbsp. cream or milk
2 tsp. vanilla
6 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
jam/jelly - any flavor for layers

Cream butter and sugar. Then add eggs, milk, and vanilla.  Add in sslt, baking soda, and flour to form cookie dough.  Refrigerate for 8 hours.  Divide dough in two (leaving one half in fridge) because recipe will make two cakes.  Divide the half of dough into 5 equal sections.  Roll out 3 sections into 3 rounds the size of the cake pan (just a bit smaller than the 8-9inch cake pan).  Add any left over dough to the section that will be your outside layer.  Bake the 3 cake sections at 350 until golden brown. Place on wire rack to cool.  Roll out outside layer which should be 10-11 inches in diameter depending on size of pan.  Place outside layer (which isn't cooked yet) in cake pan, making sure it is big enough to cover the sides.  Add layer of jam, cover with one of the cooked sections.  Repeat 2 more times.  Add one last layer of jam and then the raw top layer.  Pinch bottom layer and top layer together.  Bake 350 for 30 minutes.  Let cool and then remove from pan and slice.  Repeat for second cake.
