Ingredients You'll Need
For the Crumbl chilled sugar cookie:
- Salted butter.
- Granulated sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Almond extract
- All-purpose flour

- Salted butter- make sure it's softened.
- Powdered sugar

How To Make Copycat Crumbl Cookies
1. Mix the wet ingredients: Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light in color and soft. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract to the bowl and mix for a couple more minutes.
2. Make the cookie dough: Add the flour and baking powder to the bowl and mix as little as possible until a dough forms with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Divide the dough into 10 balls and arrange them on the prepared baking tray.
3. Bake the cookies: Bake the sugar cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then place the baked cookies on a wire rack to cool completely while you make the frosting.
4. Make the frosting: Mix the softened butter, powdered sugar, almond extract, and milk in a bowl until the ingredients fully combine. Spread in the middle of the baked cookies. Spread the frosting in the middle of each cookie. Refrigerate the cookies to let them chill, then enjoy!
Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Use less milk for a thicker icing and use more powdered sugar for a thicker icing.
- Add a drop of red food coloring to make pink icing.
- Try using a vanilla cream cheese frosting for a more decadent sugar cookie.
- Leave a little space between each cookie dough ball. The cookie dough spreads out as they bake.
- Bake the cookies for 6-8 minutes if you like underdone cookies that taste more like cookie dough.
- Rotate your pan halfway through baking to ensure an even baking for all the cookies.
How To Store Crumbl Cookies
In the fridge: Store these Crumbl cookies in an airtight container that is big enough for the cookies to lay flat, or you can use more than one airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
In the freezer: Transfer the cookies to a freezer-safe bag with some parchment paper on top so the frosting doesn't stick to the bag. Freeze the cookies for up to 3 months. Let them thaw in the fridge before enjoying them.
