If it is a cookie that was done large like the size of a pizza they will not stay puffy like a cake.  Just like a cookie they will deflate a bit when you take them out of the oven. 
The cookie dough does not have the structure a cake does. 
Decorate the cookie and I am sure it will be delicious. And no one will give it a second thought.

The recipe and directions might help in a better answer if I am off the mark on the cookie cake.

hey guys     she's asking about a cake, not cookies

welcome  giuffrida e
my experience with puffed up cake  falling is usually related to oven temp
cooking too fast         if you don't have an oven thermometer  they are relatively cheap at walmart or most grocers carry them
it is a good investment
also are you using dark pans  if so you should lower temp by 25 degrees
if you live at high altitude  there are usually adjustments to make

Nellie, that is where I was confused I thought she was talking about a cookie that would be done like a cake.  I usually think of "dough" for cookies and "batter" for cake. 
So if this is a cake you are correct in that it is most likely oven temperature.
 Or possibly baking powder that is out of date.
