Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cookies

Crumbl is a cookie shop that has been popping up all over Utah, and now across the whole country. They are known for their HUGE but insanely delicious cookies. With an always delicious rotating menu you can try new cookies each week! Insanely delicious cookies like: Raspberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Oreo, Chilled Sugar, S’mores Brownie or even classic Chocolate Chip

Several weeks go I saw a Salted Caramel Cheesecake cookie on the menu and I KNEW I had to try it! I have a love for all things cheesecake and all things caramel so this cookie sounded like absolute heaven! 

I gotta say, I wasn’t mad about it! A perfectly sweet graham cracker cookie topped with a slightly tangy cheesecake frosting and a salted caramel drizzle. I am here for it! It absolutely blew me away and I knew I simple couldn’t wait for the Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cookie to come back into rotation! I needed to figure out a copycat recipe to satisfy my cravings! 

And here it is…dare I say, even better than the original!

Ingredients In Salted  Caramel Cheesecake Cookies

For the Cookie

  • Butter- I always use salted because that is what I have on hand. You will want the butter to be room temperature so that you can cream it with the sugar without any lumps. 
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Brown Sugar- This combination of sugars will give you the perfect flavor and texture that you want in a cookie. Plus the brown sugar helps keep the cookie nice and soft. 
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Flour- Just regular All Purpose flour will do!
  • Crushed Graham Crackers- You’ll need two packages of graham crackers crushed, I like to just toss them in my blender until they are a fine crumb.
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt

For the Frosting

  • Cream Cheese- You’ll want this about room temperature. Pull it out of the fridge when you start making your cookies and you’ll be good to go!
  • Marshmallow Fluff- Don’t mock the fluff! Marshmallow fluff gets a bad rap, but it is delicious and so versatile in desserts. 
  • Powdered Sugar


  • Caramel Dip- You can make your own, or use your store bought favorite! Be sure to use dip, not sauce. Caramel sauce is much thinner and will just slide off of your cookies. 
  • Coarse Sea Salt

How To Make Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cookies

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a stand mixer cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Next, add the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, baking sugar and salt and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix once you have added the flour or your cookies will become tough and cakey. 

Separate the dough into twelve 1/2 cup portions. This will make BIG cookies. You can make them smaller but you will want to shorten the cook time. Roll each piece into a ball and place 6 balls per cookie sheet. Press down on each ball to flatten it slightly.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cookies start to turn a golden brown. 

When the cookies are baked, remove the pan from the oven. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 20 minutes 

While the cookies are cooling make the frosting by whipping the cream cheese until it’s smooth. Slowly add the marshmallow cream and mix until smooth. Mix the powdered sugar in one half cup at a time. 

Add the frosting to a gallon size zip top bag. Cut the tip off of the corner and use the bag to pipe the frosting onto the cookies in a spiral.

Put the caramel dip in a zip top bag and pipe it onto the cookie in a zig zag pattern. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve warm. 

How To Store Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cookies

You will want to store the cookies in an airtight container. The cookies will store just fine on the counter, but I store mine in the fridge because I like them chilled. 

Can I Freeze The Cookies?

Absolutely! These cookies freeze beautifully! After they have cooled store them individually in a zip top bag. When you are ready to eat, just remove them from the freezer and let them thaw on the counter for a half hour.

  1. Was the weather different the second time you made them? Maybe more humid? That can have a flattening effect on cookies!

  2. 5 stars
    Love these cookies! The base cookie is amazing. Frosting is great, but mine tends to be in the runny side, more like a flood icing. Any tips?

  3. If you are adding any milk during the mixing process, next time try not to add any milk and that should fix the problem!

  4. 5 stars
    Made and very close to the company’s cookie at crumbl. I did decrease size because as written it produces a 6 inch cookie! I did 1/3 c measure, and baked same amount of time. Turned out great and still very large with a soft center. Decreased the Fluff by a small amount as icing was sweet enough.

    The first time I tried these and served them to a youth group they were a HIT! My husband called them Kolob cookies 😉
