If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy a Crumbl cookie, you are missing out!

Crumbl Cookies (yes, Crumbl without the e) are known for being buttery cookies that are also a thick cookie. They are made fresh in the Crumbl cookie shop and iced right in front of you.

In the Crumbl store, for the Crumbl Sugar Cookie, once the cookie dough is made and baked, the cookies are chilled. This cookie is actually served chilled with pink frosting on top which they make using a sweet almond icing and placed inside a pink box. Honestly, it has to be my favorite sugar cookie and I’m always looking forward to new cookie flavors Crumbl has to try!

I’m confident you will love this soft sugar cookie recipe and stay tuned because we will have more Copycat Crumbl cookie recipes to look forward to!

For the buttercream icing

Place butter into a mixer and beat until smooth (about 3 minutes).

Add in powdered sugar, vanilla, almond extract and 1 Tablespoon milk (possibly two, see note below)

Beat on high for 4 mins

Spread the icing to the top of cooled cookies. You don’t need a piping bag, just use a butter knife to spread the frosting on top of the cookies.

Things to Note:

  • The dough will look like cake batter prior to adding in the dry ingredients.  That’s okay, it will look like a dough after the flour is added.  It should NOT be loose or sticky dough.
  • These cookies don’t really spread, but they will be a puffy and fluffy cookie.
  • The amount of milk being added to the cream cheese icing will be determined by the weather.
  • For climates with more moisture in the air (or if its raining while making this) you will only need 1 Tbsp of milk. For drier climates, you will probably need both.
