What You’ll Love About Crumbl Sugar Cookie Recipe
- Tastes just like the Crumbl pink sugar cookie!
- Can make in any color
- Easy to make
- Smaller size than Crumbl (which I prefer)
- Made with just 11 basic ingredients (mostly pantry staples)
- Just 15 minutes prep time
You’ll need just a handful of basic ingredients to make this crumbl sugar cookie copycat recipe:
- Flour – Use an all-purpose flour for best results.
- Baking powder – This helps ensure that the cookies aren’t dense.
- Salt – The salt helps bring out the sweet flavor even more.
- Butter – Use a high quality butter for best results.
- Sugar – Use granulated sugar for best results and classic sugar cookie flavor.
- Powdered sugar – The powdered sugar in the cookie batter helps to create a chewy texture and is also the base of the icing.
- Egg – Use a high quality egg for best results.
- Vanilla extract – Use a high quality vanilla extract for best results.
- Almond extract – Don’t skip this, even though it’s a small amount, it adds the signature Crumbl sugar cookie almond flavor to both the cookies and icing.
- Cream – This helps lighten the icing a bit.
- Food coloring – I recommend using gel colors because they don’t change the consistency of the icing.
How to Make Crumbl Pink Sugar Cookies
Let me show you how simple this crumbl cookie copycat recipe is:
- Mix dry ingredients. In a small mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Beat butter and sugar. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat together butter with both granulated sugar and powdered sugar until fluffy.
- Beat wet ingredients. Beat in egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract until combined.
- Mix cookie dough. Beat in flour mixture until fully incorporated.
- Shape cookies. Scoop out dough into walnut sized balls (about 2 tablespoons) or a rounded large cookie dough scoop and lightly flatten in your hands.
- Bake cookies. Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat with about 2 inches of space in between each and bake in the oven until set on the edges. Let completely to room temperature.
- Make almond buttercream frosting. While cookies cool, beat butter, powdered sugar, cream, vanilla extract, and almond extract together. Add pink food coloring (a drop or two of red) and add food coloring until it reaches desired shade.
- Frost cookies. Spread icing on cookies as desired. Let set before freezing or stacking.
Store crumbl cookies sugar cookie recipe in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
Can you freeze Crumbl cookies?
Yes! These cookies freeze really well and I actually prefer to freeze them right away (once the icing has set) – just like I do when I get them from Crumbl.
