Crumbl Sugar Cookies Recipe

Lisa Joy Thompson

Crumbl Cookie Lovers…this is your lucky day! Today I’m sharing an Easy Copycat Crumbl Sugar Cookie Recipe with you!

When I originally created and shared this Crumbl cookie recipe with you, Crumbl had these amazing Chilled Sugar Cookies as one of the staples on their menu. You could grab them every time you went to the cookie shop {and I know lots of you did just that}.

Unfortunately, this has been added back into their rotation which means that your craving is not just a quick hop, skip and a jump away. Thankfully, you can make these yummy cookies at home now!

If you’re on social media at all, chances are good you’ve seen someone waxing poetic about Crumbl Cookies…and there is a good reason for that. Crumbl makes amazingly delicious cookies!

I love to bake, so I’m not usually super impressed with most bakeries, but this little cookie shop was quite impressive.

As soon as I tried Crumbl cookies, I knew I’d try making some Crumbl copycats. Their large cookies are so tasty! It took some experimenting, but I think this Crumbl copycat recipe is as good as the real deal!

If you’ve never tried Crumbl Chilled Sugar Cookies, you’re in for a treat. Crumbl makes giant cookies and this buttery sugar cookie has a little bit of almond flavor to it. Some people think the best part is the pink icing, but I think it’s hard to choose a favorite part.

Crumbl Sugar Cookie Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature 
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract 
  • 3 cups flour, scooped and leveled
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp salt

How To Make Copycat Crumbl Sugar Cookies

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside. 

Cream butter, cream cheese and granulated sugar for 5-6 minutes or until your mixture is super fluffy.

Add in eggs one at a time followed by the vanilla extract and almond extract and beat until well incorporated. It will look like cake batter at this point, but don’t despair. Once you add the flour and other dry ingredients, it will look much more like cookie dough.

Add in the rest of your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) and mix well.

Use a large cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to scoop cookie dough into 16 scoops.

If your scoops create nice and evenly rounded dough balls, you can just press them down until they’re about 1/4″ thick.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

Remove the cookies from the oven and let them rest on the baking sheets for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, transfer them from the baking sheet to a wire cooling rack to let them finish cooling.

Crumbl Sugar Cookie Frosting Ingredients

Crumbl tops their sugar cookies with an almond buttercream frosting. Here’s what you’ll need to make your frosting.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 tsp almond extract 
  • 1-2 Tbsp whole milk
  • Pink Food Coloring (I like this gel color)

How To Make Almond Buttercream Frosting

While your cookies are baking and cooling, you can make your frosting. Crumbl uses an almond buttercream frosting on their sugar cookies.

Put your room temperature butter into a large bowl and use an electric mixer to beat until smooth. I like to use a stand mixer for this, but you could use an electric hand mixer if you prefer.

Add in powdered sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract and 1 tablespoon of milk. Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed. If your frosting isn’t smooth, add another tablespoon of milk and beat on high for 4 minutes.

If you’re using pink food coloring, add it now and then mix for another minute.

Spread the icing on top of the cookies.

Serve and enjoy!

FAQs {Frequently Asked Questions}

Can I use a cream cheese frosting instead?

You sure can. The cream cheese frosting will taste delicious with the sugar cookie, but it won’t taste the same as the Crumbl cookies and their sweet almond icing.

Do I have to use pink food coloring?

No. While the crumbl cookies have pink frosting, you could use a different color food coloring if you wanted cookies with a different color frosting, you could use a different color food coloring.

How do I store these copycat cookies?

You can store these buttery cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Can I grease my cookie sheet instead of using parchment paper?

No. I recommend using ungreased cookie sheets topped with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

I don’t like almond flavoring. Do I have to use almond extract?

No. I’m all about making recipes your own. But keep in mind that this crumbl cookie recipe is designed to be a copycat recipe. If you’re just looking for yummy soft sugar cookies, feel free to leave out the almond extract. If you want it to taste like a crumbl sugar cookie, you need to add the almond extract.

What kind of flour should I use for this recipe?

I think all-purpose flour works best for this recipe.

How do I know how much milk to add to my frosting?

It will depend on the moisture in the air. If you live in a humid climate or if it’s raining, you’ll probably only need 1 tablespoon milk. If you live in a dry climate, it’s more likely that you’ll need 2 Tablespoons. Start with 1 tablespoon and add more if you need to.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this copycat Crumbl sugar cookies recipe.
