You are going to love this copycat recipe for Crumbl Sugar Cookies! So fast and easy to make, with a no-chill dough, it’s easy to see why these are always a favorite at our house! Super soft, chewy and buttery, topped with a perfect Sweet Almond Buttercream Frosting, and the same GIANT size to share or tackle on your own! I’m famous for my decorated sugar cookies, but sometimes you just want a cookie that is fast, yummy, and warm from the oven!
For our family Easter celebration, I tinted the Sweet Almond Buttercream Frosting on these classic Crumbl Sugar Cookies with Robin's Egg Blue, rather than the traditional pale pink frosting.
WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND CRUMBL COOKIES?
Crumbl is an amazing cookie company that started in Logan, Utah, that specializes in GIGANTIC cookies in a variety of classic flavors and a weekly rotating menu of different and incredible cookies. In less than four years, they are considered the fastest growing cookie company in the world - and everyone loves seeing their signature pink boxes!
If you don’t have a Crumbl near you, or if your love of Crumbl cookies is turning into an addiction, these copycat cookies are just like the real thing, but so much more affordable - and you can have fresh baked andincredible flavors of Crumbl from your own kitchen, at a fraction of the cost, anytime you want!
WHAT ARE THE CLASSIC CRUMBL COOKIES?
Up until April of 2022, you could always find the famous chilled Sugar Cookies with Sweet Almond Icing and Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies. They have now discontinued the chilled Sugar Cookies from the permanent menu, and will be offering an additional specialty flavor each week.
WHAT ARE THE CRUMBL SPECIALTY FLAVORS?
Every Sunday night Crumbl announcing a new weekly menu of cookie flavors for the week on social media, which is brilliant on their part! People crowd into their stores to try new flavors as they are rolled out, and to pick up their favorites when they are available to freeze for a rainy day.
It truly is hard to decide which is our favorite - and it's fun to share new cookies and revise our "favorites" list! Will it be Birthday Cake, Snickerdoodle Cupcake, Cookies 'n Cream, Pink Velvet, Cinnamon Bun, Chocolate Mallow Cupcake, Key Lime, Chocolate Caramel, Sea Salt Toffee, Ultimate Peanut Butter, Berries & Cream, or new this week - Boston Cream Pie... Crumbl, you're killing us! Good thing I love to tinker in the kitchen to create and share copycat recipes!
They also sell their custom pink "cookie cutter", which allows you to cut each massive cookie into four equal pieces. And I forgot to mention that they also have four custom Ice Cream flavors that rotate weekly as well - as if life wasn't hard enough already!
FOR PERFECT COOKIES EVERY TIME, START WITH THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS:
For gourmet cookies, in addition to using premium chocolate and cocoa, only the best ingredients will give you the texture, richness and depth of flavor we all crave. Make sure to use fresh ingredients for the best results! I’ve made so many cakes, cookies and brownies through the years, and these are my recommendations:
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE CRUMBL COPYCAT FLAVORS?
1 cup salted butter
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
2 large eggs (room temperature)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon pure almond extract
3 cups (375g) all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
SWEET ALMOND BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
1/2 cup salted butter softened
3 cups (360g) powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
2-4 tablespoons milk or half & half
AmeriColor Soft Gel Food Coloring (strongly recommended – neon pink is the traditional color)
HOW I MAKE THESE:
YIELD: Makes about 18 (four-inch) cookies
RECIPE NOTES: These cookies will stay fresh in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Baked and frosted cookies freeze well for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight UNOPENED on your kitchen countertop before decorating.
FOR PARTIES: I package cookies individually in self-sealing clear cellophane cello bags (Pack It Chic are my favorite brand). Make sure cookies are completely dry after decorating before packaging. To make ahead, place individually wrapped and sealed cookies in a larger airtight container and refrigerate or freeze. Thaw frozen cookies in the refrigerator or on your countertop before serving - you are trying to minimize moisture during defrosting, which can cause your frosting to run or bleed.
TO KEEP THESE COOKIES SOFT: These cookies will stay soft and fresh in an air-tight container refrigerated for up to one week.
