Crumbl has quickly become our favorite cookie shop in the state of Utah. We have tried so many different flavors and looking at the menu each week feels like Christmas.

It is no secret that Crumbl cookies are large, buttery, soft and chewy cookies with a variety of toppings.

While earning Crumbl Cash is a fun perk to buying them in-store, nothing beats making a batch of Crumbl cookies at home with the family.

That is why we made this Copycat Crumbl recipe so you can enjoy these delicious cookies at home too!

  • Flour – This is just regular all-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Funfetti sprinkles – You want to get the rainbow jimmies sprinkles

For The Crumbl Vanilla Frosting

How to Make Crumbl Birthday Cake Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper

Using a standing mixer, beat the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla (or cake batter flavoring) until combined, creamy and fluffy

Using a medium bowl, whisk the flour and baking powder

Gradually beat in the dry ingredients into the wet until a soft dough forms

Gently fold in the Funfetti sprinkles

Using a medium ice cream scooper, scoop out some dough and roll into a ball. If you have a food scale on hand, you can weigh the cookies to 2.5 ounces so you know they will all be the same size and bake evenly.

Place the cookies onto a cookie sheet and lightly flatten into a thick disk (you can use the bottom of a cup or small bowl to help with this)

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly brown

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Make The Frosting While The Cookies Cool

Using the standing mixer, beat all ingredients, except the sprinkles, together until combined and smooth and holds a peak

Scoop the frosting into the piping bag

Starting from the middle of the cookie, pipe a thick spiral of frosting from the middle to the edge of the cookie

How to Store The Cookies

Make sure you store any leftover cookies in an airtight container away from heat and moisture. You can safely store these at room temperature for a few days. If you prefer, you can also store these in the refrigerator for a few days as well (they will then become chilled cookies).
