Are your kids as obsessed with Crumbl cookies as mine are? Honestly our whole family loves a good Crumbl cookie, but they are not so frugal at all, definitely a splurge to go there! So we love making Crumbl copycat recipes so we can bring that moist, thick, delicious Crumbl goodness home!
If you are a fan of all things peanut butter, this chewy peanut butter cookie recipe is so good! The inside is filled with an extra dollop of peanut butter which is a nice surprise when you bite into the cookie. The cookies are then sprinkled with sugar on top to finish it off!
What I like about making the copycat Crumbl cookies at home is that you can control the size of the cookies, too! I love Crumbl cookies, but I can only handle like 1/4 of them because they are so rich. So this way you could make smaller cookies so they aren’t as overwhelming for your family or your guests if you’re serving at a gathering.
