Copycat Snacks: Chocolate Chip Crumbl Cookies


A little while ago, a Crumbl Cookies opened up near me. I’ve tried it a few times, and they’re pretty decent, if expensive for what they are. For anyone who doesn’t have one nearby, they’re a store selling gourmet cookies individually, with the gimmick of a rotating selection of flavors that change each week to keep you coming back.

Well, I know some of their flavors stick around, like the ever-popular chocolate chip cookies. I decided, rather than go spend a bunch of money on some cookies, why not see if I can make them myself?

Crumbl Cookies have a few specific characteristics I was aiming for. First, they’re not super complex. After all, they’re made with relatively basic pre-packaged ingredients and produced in bulk, so they can’t be too tricky to make. Second, they’re very soft. The name comes from the almost cake-like crumb they usually have. Third, they’re quite rich for their size. I often only eat half of one of their cookies at a time. So, I set out to make my own.

I’d say they turned out pretty close! The secret key ingredient here is corn starch; it makes the flour behave a bit more like cake flour, but not quite. I didn’t get the shape quite right, but the taste is accurate enough it really doesn’t matter.

If you’re used to really fancy brown butter chocolate chip cookies or cookies with a bunch of mix-ins and other gimmicks, these will probably be a bit bland for you. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of Crumbl, this just might do the trick and save you some money.
