Ingredients – What you need for the Copycat Cumbl Pink Sugar Cookie Recipe
When it comes to dry ingredients you will find that flour is an integral ingredient. Flour provides the base and structure for the cookie dough and helps to bring everything together. We like to use all-purpose flour and you will need 3 cups for these copycat crumbl cookies. When measuring the flour use a spoon and sift it before adding it to your cookie mixture.
Baking powder is an important part of cookie dough and there is a little science behind it. The baking powder adds carbon dioxide to the equation which helps your cookie dough to spread up and out. You only need a small amount. For this recipe use 2 teaspoons.
For this recipe, you need 1 cup of butter that is softened at room temperature. We like to use unsalted butter.
Two large eggs are the perfect addition to get the dough’s texture just right. The egg yolk also helps with that chewy texture and golden color that will elevate these cookies.
White granulated sugar adds sweetness to these cookies and helps with the texture. You need 1 cup for this easy cookie recipe.
You can’t go wrong with the vanilla flavor when it comes to these delicious cookies. For this cookie recipe, the vanilla will add sweetness. You need 2 teaspoons.
Almond is traditionally a strong flavor with these cookies. It will help counterbalance the sweetness of the vanilla and make them taste amazing. You need 1/2 teaspoon.
The Pink Icing
The icing is what makes these cookies recognizable. The flavor is that of almond and you will also notice that the color we are using is pink to match up to the sugar cookies we know and love. For the icing you will need:
- 1/2 cup of salted butter, softened
- 3 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 tsp of almond extract
- 3 tbsp of milk
- neon pink food coloring

How to make the Copycat Cumbl Pink Sugar Cookie
One of the first things you will want to do is gather all of your ingredients together. Then preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper ready for when you want to bake your buttery sugar cookie.
In a medium bowl beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. You can use an electric mixer for this to speed up the process.
Add in the eggs, vanilla, and almond extracts and mix well to ensure all of the ingredients have combined together. Then add in the flour and baking powder. Give the cookie mixture a thorough mix until a dough forms.
Scoop out the dough into dough balls and place them on the lined cookie sheet, use a glass dipped in flour to flatten the balls slightly. Make sure there is sufficient space between the cookies to get the best results when baking.
Bake in the oven for 9-11 minutes, until the edges are golden.
While the cookies are baking mix all of the icing ingredients together until smooth and creamy, then place the icing in a piping bag with a small cut tip. This is your sweet almond frosting that will bring this crumbl copycat recipe to life.
