What Are Crumbl Recipe Mom’s Cookies? 

Crumbl Cookies is the name of a nationwide cookie store that started in Logan, Utah in 2017. Mom’s Cookies are one of their most popular flavors and originated as a family recipe. 

They are described as having, “a little taste of something everyone will love.” And it’s true!

Similar to Kitchen Sink Cookies, they’ve got little nibbles of everything in each decadent bite to curb your cravings no matter what you’re in the mood for.

What’s in Mom’s Recipe Crumbl Cookies? 

As mentioned, these cookies have a little bit of everything, but here’s exactly what you’ll need: 

  • Melted Browned ButterLearn how to brown butter with ease, and use it to add a rich, nutty taste to the base of the dough. 
  • Sugar – A combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar sweetens the cookie dough while keeping it soft and moist. 
  • Vanilla Extract – Use high-quality pure vanilla extract. Trust us. You can taste the difference! 
  • Eggs – You’ll use a large egg and an egg yolk to provide structure to the cookies while making them extra decadent and moist. 
  • Oats – Use rolled oats, and make sure they’re certified gluten-free if needed. 
  • Flour – All-purpose flour forms the base of the dough. We haven’t tested it, but a 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour should also work. 
  • Cinnamon – Ground cinnamon adds a subtle sweetness and just a hint of spice for extra depth that takes these cookies to the next level. 
  • Baking Soda – Make sure it’s fresh! 
  • Kosher Salt – Just a pinch helps enhance the flavor of the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Chocolate Chips – Semi-sweet chocolate chips are folded into the dough just as they would be with regular chocolate chip cookies
  • Peanut Butter Chips – Find these in the baking section of your local grocery store or online! 
  • Toffee Bits – Buy pre-made toffee bits from the store or just chop up Heath bars. 
  • Sea Salt – Not to be confused with kosher salt, sea salt is bigger and sprinkled on top for a savory taste that balances the sweetness fabulously. 

How to Make a Copycat Crumbl Cookie Mom’s Recipe

Although they look impressive, these cookies are actually really easy to make. Just follow the instructions below, and scroll down to the recipe card for the complete details! 

  1. Cream. Add the melted browned butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar to a stand mixer or large bowl, and cream until smooth and fluffy. 
  2. Beat. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract, and beat the wet ingredients on medium speed. 
  3. Combine the Wet and Dry Ingredients. Pour the dry ingredients except for the mix-ins into the bowl of wet ingredients, and beat until they’re just combined. Fold in the mix-ins until they’re evenly distributed. 
  4. Portion. Divided the dough into even balls, and arrange them on a greased baking sheet, leaving space in between each piece. Gently flatten each cookie dough ball with your hand. 
  5. Bake. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven until they’re just beginning to turn golden and the edges are set. 
  6. Cool. Sprinkle the cookies with the sea salt, and transfer them to a wire rack to cool. 

How to Make Browned Butter

Creating browned butter is a fairly simple process but it helps develop a sweet, nutty flavor that makes these cookies oh-so-good. Essentially, all you have to do is cook the butter just past its melting point in order to brown some of the milk fats. 

The process takes about three to five minutes, and all you need is butter, a pan or saucepot, and a whisk, or spatula. However, if you are using a non-stick pan, we recommend opting for a silicone whisk or spatula to avoid scraping up the bottom of your pot!

Tips for Success

The tips below are crucial to creating a Crumbl Cookie recipe that tastes just like the real deal! 

  • Don’t Overmix. Combine the ingredients just until the batter is smooth. Continuing to mix will overwork the gluten in the dough, causing the cookies to become dense and tough. 
  • Avoid Overbaking. Keep a close eye on the oven, and remove the cookies as soon as the tops are golden and the edges are set. Remember, they’ll continue to bake as they cool! 
  • Portion Evenly. Use a large cookie scoop or a ½ cup measuring cup to portion the dough evenly and ensure every cookie is the same size. 
  • Chill the Dough. The dough can sometimes spread in the oven. If you want to prevent this, try chilling it in the fridge for 15 minutes before portioning and baking. This step isn’t necessary, but it can help! 

Storage Options 

It’s pretty unlikely that you’ll have any leftovers. However, if you do, these Mom’s Recipe cookies store well. 

  • Room Temperature: Place the cookies in a sealable bag or airtight container, and keep them in a cool, dry place at room temperature for up to five days. 
  • Refrigerator: Place the cookies in an airtight container, and store them in the fridge for up to one week. We recommend letting them come to room temperature or popping them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating! 

Can I Freeze These Cookies?

You bet! These Mom’s Recipe Crumbl Cookies can be frozen either baked or unbaked. 

  • Unbaked: Create and portion the dough, arranging it on a baking sheet. Then, place the dough balls in the freezer for a few hours or until hard. Transfer them to a freezer-safe container, and keep them stored for up to three months
  • Baked: Transfer baked cookies to a freezer-safe container, and keep them frozen for up to three months. To prevent them from sticking together, place a piece of parchment paper between each cookie! 
  • To Enjoy: Bake the dough from frozen, adding a few extra minutes as needed, or let it thaw in the fridge overnight. Or, let the frozen baked cookies thaw in the fridge and warm them in the microwave for a few seconds!

Common Questions About This Crumbl Cookies Mom’s Recipe Copycat

Can I use instant oats or quick oats? 

We don’t recommend it, because they will blend into the dough and have a different texture that could cause your cookies to become too soft. 

Can I use milk chocolate chips? 

Sure! Feel free to use any kind of chocolate chips you like best. 

What can I use in place of peanut butter chips? 

If you can’t find peanut butter chips or don’t want them, you can omit them completely. Or, use butterscotch chips instead. Just note that the flavor of your cookies will change.
