Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
- All Purpose Flour – AP flour is perfect for this recipe. Make sure to measure by spooning the flour into your measuring cup then leveling, don’t scoop the flour with the measuring cup.
- Brown and White Sugar – You’ll need both brown sugar and white sugar for this recipe. You don’t have to use both, but it’s highly recommended to get the perfect texture for the best cookie.
- Chocolate Chips – It’s really up to you what brand you want to use, but Guittard milk chocolate chips or Nestle chocolate chips go perfectly with this recipe.
- Softened Salted Butter – You can use unsalted butter, but I recommend adding a pinch of salt to the dough if you do. Make sure it’s at room temperature so that it blends easily.
- Cornstarch – This helps give the chewy, thick texture that makes the perfect cookie.
- Vanilla Extract – This recipe calls for a full tablespoon of vanilla, and pure vanilla extract will give you the best flavor. While this recipe calls for vanilla extract, you can also use almond extract if you like.
- Optional: Powdered Sugar Frosting – If you want to add a pop of color to your Crumbl cookies, you can decorate the. This Powdered Sugar Frosting Recipe is perfect to top them off with.
How To Make Crumbl Cookies
1. First, line your cookie sheets with parchment paper for an easier clean-up. Next, in a large bowl cream together the butter and both sugars for at least 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
2. Next, add vanilla extract and large eggs. Mix together for another two minutes until well combined.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients – flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
4. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, and mix to combine.
5. Fold in 2 cups of chocolate chips.
6. Use ½ cup of cookie dough to make each cookie dough ball. This cookie scoop is pretty close to 1/2 cup.
7. Roll the dough into a ball, squish it down slightly, then add a couple more chocolate chips on top. Place the dough balls on the cookie sheet. Try not to crowd them, there should be no more than 6 on a pan.
To make sure the cookies don’t spread too much while baking, chill the cookie dough balls in the fridge for an hour before popping them in the oven. Chilling the dough really provides the best results.
8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake the cookies on prepared baking sheets for 15 minutes then check them. They should be golden but not shiny. If they are not baked all the way, they may need a few more minutes.
9. Allow them to rest on the pan for 15 minutes before removing them, then move them to a wire rack and decorate once completely cooled! Frosting can be spread or piped onto the top of the cookies with a piping bag if desired.
Recipe Tips and Advice
Storage: These copycat Crumbl chocolate chip cookies will store up to 3 days in an airtight container, and the dough will store up to 3 month in the freezer. If you decide to store the dough in the freezer I recommend shaping them into dough balls first.
You can also freeze the baked cookies too, those last up to a month. Just make sure they are completely cool prior to freezing.
Reheating: If you want to get it back to that “freshly-baked” consistency, you can pop a room-temperature cookie in the microwave for 10 seconds and it tastes good as new.
Supplies: Cookie sheets are a must. A stand mixer is great for this recipe, but a hand mixer works just as well to ensure a smooth consistency in the dough. A large ice cream scooper is helpful for scooping out your cookie dough.
Yes, the cookies will still bake and firm up on the sheet after its time in the oven.
