Since the Crumbl cookies flavors change weekly, if you ever tried the Salted Caramel Cheesecake cookies, you’ll know you could be waiting months until they bring them back.

Now you can make your own.

These cookies are really simple to make and the entire family agreed that they taste EXACTLY like Crumbl cookies.

WHAT ARE CRUMBL COOKIES?

Crumbl is a rather new cookie bakery that was started by two cousins in Logan, Utah in 2017. Cousins, Sawyer Hemsley and Jason McGowan set out to create the world’s best chocolate chip cookie. After some trial and error, testing ingredients and baking methods, Sawyer, Jason and their family opened up the first Crumbl store in Utah when Sawyer was still attending Utah State University.

Crumbl’s delicious cookies wouldn’t be complete without their iconic pink packaging! Crumbl’s boxes were designed to perfectly fit each Crumbl cookie side-by-side, whether in a 4-pack, 6-pack, or 12-pack box. The “4-pack” pink box — the brand’s most popular and notable — was developed in 2018, shortly after Crumbl sold its very first cookie. 

They opened with just milk chocolate chip cookies and milk but quickly expanded to the rotating weekly cookie flavors that we know today. Crumbl’s award-winning milk chocolate chip cookie has always been on the menu with their chilled pink sugar cookie becoming a semi-permanent menu item soon after.

Since opening its doors in 2017, Crumbl has expanded to over 200 bakeries in 32 states nationwide, making it the fastest-growing cookie company in the nation.

CAN I MAKE MY OWN CRUMBL COOKIES AT HOME?

ABSOLUTELY! These cookies are surprisingly easy to make even though they look so elegant and taste so delicious when you are done. They are great to bring to a party, get-together, BBQ or anywhere you want to impress friends and family.

HOW TO MAKE CRUMBL CHEESECAKE COOKIES (COPYCAT VERSION)

3. Add the vanilla extract and eggs to the butter mixture and mix.

4. Add flour, salt, crushed graham crackers, baking soda and baking powder and mix until combined.

5. Using a 1/4 cup, scoop out 22 equal dough balls. (It will be a little less than a 1/4 of cup per dough ball.)

6. Roll the dough balls into even balls and place 6 dough balls at a time on prepared baking sheet.

7. Slightly flatten dough balls using the bottom of a bowl or glass. The cookies should be thick about 3/4 to 1 inch thick.

  2. Add powdered sugar in 1/2 half of a cup at a time and continue mixing until all sugar is completely incorporated.
  3. Add in marshmallow fluff and mix until smooth and fluffy.

EXPERT TIPS

Can I cut this recipe in half?

Absolutely. If you don’t need quite so many cookies, definitely cut the ingredients in half. I make half of this recipe all the time.

Can I leave off the caramel drizzle?

Yes. While I really enjoy the caramel drizzle addition, my daughter thinks it can sometimes be too sweet.

Can I successfully make bigger or smaller cookies?

Yes. 1/4 of a cup of dough does make big cookies similar to Crumbl but you can always add more or use less dough on each dough ball.
