What are CRUMBL cookies ?

CRUMBL cookies or CRUMBL bakery is a cookie bakery that started out in Utah. It was started by two cousins that loved cookies so much that they wanted to share that with the world. The craziest and most fun part about how this company came about is how they came up with their recipes.

They would go to gas stations, and other public places and share cookies with random people who asked them which cookie they preferred. Each time, they would change one ingredient in the cookies and then ask again until they came out with THE PERFECT COOKIE!

Ingredients for giant sugar cookies

Here are the ingredients you will need to make these chilled sugar cookies. Make sure to scroll down to the recipe card for the full detailed ingredient measurements.

  • Butter- You will need to use unsalted butter for these cookies as well as for the frosting. Make sure it is softened.
  • oil– The vegetable or canola oil is used to keep the cookies moist even after baking and chilling.
  • Granulated and powdered sugar– This sugar cookie uses both granulated sugar and powdered sugar for the ultimate melt-in-your-mouth experience.
  • Egg– You will need one large egg at room temperature.
  • Vanilla and almond extract– The cookie from Crumbl has hints of vanilla and almond so we use both to make the best copycat recipe out there!
  • Flour– All-purpose flour works great for this recipe.
  • Salt– I always use a bit of salt to my baked goods to balance out the sweetness.
  • Cream of tartar– The cream of tartar is used alongside the baking powder to add a little height to these cookies as well as keep it extra soft.
  • Baking powder– The baking powder is the leavening agent for this cookie recipe.
  • Heavy cream– The heavy cream is used to get out pink sugar cookie almond frosting to the right consistency.
  • Pink gel food coloring I used the Wilton pink food coloring to get the pink color in the frosting.

How to soften butter quickly?

Since this copycat Crumbl sugar cookie recipe uses softened butter, here are a few tips to soften your butter quickly.

  1. Cutting method- Cut your butter into smaller cubes to allow it to soften quicker.
  2. Microwave and water method- Microwave a cup of water for 1-2 minutes or until really hot. Place your butter on a plate then remove the hot water from the microwave and place the plate of butter in there. Quickly close the microwave door and let it sit there for 10 minutes to soften.
  3. Grating method- Grate the cold butter with a cheese grater and let it sit for a few minutes to soften.

Variations and substitutions

  • If you don’t love almond extract just use more vanilla instead. It will still be super delicious and rich without that almond flavoring.
  • Want to make these Crumbl sugar cookies for a gender reveal party or any other party that doesn’t involve pink frosting? You can use any gel food coloring for that frosting.
