Crumbl sugar cookies are soft and buttery cookies topped with a perfectly sweet almond icing. You are going to love this copycat recipe.
Crumbl is a cookie shop that has been popping up all over Utah, and now popping up across the whole country. They are known for their HUGE but insanely delicious cookies. If you don’t have a Crumbl near you, or if your crumbl addiction is starting to break the bank, I have the solution for you! These copycat cookies are just like the real thing, but so much more affordable. Definitely check out my Crumbl Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe if you snag one of those every time you hit up Crumbl.
These might just be the easiest sugar cookies you will ever make. They feature a no chill dough that you don’t even have to roll out. Which means you can go from craving to cookie in no time flat.
One of the best things about a crumbl sugar cookie is the SIZE. They are absolutely GIANT! I use a 3.25 oz cookie scoop to make these cookies. You can make them smaller if you would like, but we usually just cut them in half or fourths. But no judgement here if you tackle one of these bad boys yourself. I guarantee you will want to!
Ingredients in Crumbl Sugar Cookies
For the Cookies
- Softened Butter- I use salted butter because that is what I always have on hand. You could use unsalted if that is what you have, but you will want to add a pinch of salt to the recipe.
- Vanilla Extract
- Almond Extract
- Flour- All purpose flour will work great in this recipe.
- Baking Powder
For the Icing
- Softened Butter
- Powdered Sugar
- Almond Extract– One of best things about a Crumbl sugar cookie is the kick of almond flavor that it has. However, if you don’t like almond extract you are certainly welcome to substitute vanilla here. Removing the almond will leave you with a really good sugar cookie, but not a signature Crumbl sugar cookie.
- Neon Pink Food Coloring– Really you can use any color, but to get the classic Crumbl look you will need neon pink.
How To Make Copycat Crumbl Sugar Cookie
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees
While the oven is preheating begin the cookie dough by creaming together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the eggs, vanilla extract and almond extract and beat again until it is mixed well.
Scrape the sides again and add the flour and baking powder. Mix again until thoroughly combined.
Scoop out 1/4 cup of dough and roll it into a ball. Again, you can make the cookies smaller if you want to but you will want to adjust the baking time. Once all your dough is rolled into balls, gently press the balls down with a glass or measuring cup. This will give the cookies their signature look.
The cookies will spread as they bake, so make sure to leave room in between the cookies on the pan. I usually only put 6 cookies per pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. It is so important to not over bake these cookies! Over baking will cause your cookies to dry out, and we want a soft and chewy texture. The cookies shouldn’t brown at all. You will know they are ready when they are puffed up and no longer look wet in the middle. For the large cookies I wouldn’t let them bake longer than 12 minutes.
Once they are removed from the oven, allow them to cook on the cookie sheet.
While the cookies are cooling, make the frosting by creaming the butter until nice and smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar, almond extract and milk until smooth and creamy. Then add 4 drops of the neon pink food coloring if desired.
You want to cookies to be mostly cooled, but just the slightest bit warm still when you ice them. This will cause the icing to melt just a little bit and will give your cookies a nice smooth look.
Crumbl sugar cookies are served chilled, so if you can bring yourself to wait, chill them in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
There you have it. Crumbl sugar cookies from your kitchen, and at a fraction of the price!
