As we are making our way towards Spring (winter is almost over, right?!?), I thought it would be good to lighten the recipes today. Something Spring-y. Something light. Since lemon cookies are perfect for Spring and we are still obsessed with Crumbl, today we are introducing you to a DIY Crumbl Lemon Glaze Cookie Recipe.

Crumbl Lemon Cookies

These cookies are SO good that my husband was mad about it. Yep, he actually said, “I’m so mad that these cookies are so good because I can’t stop eating them!” I’ll take that as a compliment. These Lemon Glaze cookies are super soft, buttery cookies topped with a delicious lemon glaze that keeps them light and chewy.

CRUMBL GIANT OR MINI COOKIES?

Yes, Crumbl is known for their GIANT cookies. They are so big, 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. I like my own perfectly round, un-touched cookie so mini cookies are right up my alley.

Sure you could make only 8 big cookies with this recipe but they would be GIANT! We prefer the mini cookies though because sometimes you just want a taste and not a giant cookie. Sometimes you feel better about eating 3 or 4 small cookies than sitting down and putting away a giant cookie that is really 4 servings.

My Lemon Glaze Cookie recipe makes 24 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.
