To make crumble cookies, you’ll need the following ingredients:


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of your choice of mix-ins (chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, etc.)

For the crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Here’s the step-by-step process to make crumble cookies:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Fold in your choice of mix-ins, such as chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruit. This will add extra flavor and texture to your cookies.
  6. To prepare the crumble topping, combine the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Pour in the melted butter and mix until crumbly.
  7. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Sprinkle the crumble topping over each cookie, gently pressing it into the dough.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. The centers may still appear slightly soft, but they will firm up as the cookies cool.
  10. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Once cooled, store the crumble cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness.
