Crumbl brought back their Cornbread Cookies this week as one of their featured flavors. It’s been a few months since they’ve had the cornbread cookie option but we never forgot it. When it came back this week, we were over the moon. Since sometimes we just can’t wait for certain flavors to cycle back around to the Crumbl stores, we thought we’d share a fantastic DIY Crumbl Cornbread Cookie copycat recipe with you.

I’m a huge cornbread fan. I love it with chili, jambalaya or any Southwest dinner. But as a dessert? Oh my gosh…YES! These cookies are soft, chewy, feature a delicious honey butter flavor and are topped with a honey buttercream frosting that makes it taste like cornbread in cookie form.

MINI CRUMBL COOKIES ARE THE WAY TO GO

Yes, I love Crumbl’s giant cookies but I love my mini cookies more. Dare I say that Crumbl’s cookies are too big and they make me feel guilty. In fact, they list each cookie as 3-4 servings in their stores. I don’t know about you, but I hate to share my cookies, but feel guilty if I eat an entire Crumbl cookie. I like my own perfectly round, un-touched cookie so mini cookies are right up my alley.

This Cornbread Cookie recipe makes 32 cookies because I recommend making them MUCH smaller than Crumbl would. Instead of a “shareable cookie”, this is a bite-sized cookie that you won’t feel so guilty eating. Three bites and it’s gone. Have two or three, no one is judging! I would assume Crumbl uses at least 1/4 of a cup of cookie dough for each cookie and I suggest about 1 tablespoon of dough in order to make these a more manageable size.
