Gourmet cookies are all the rage right now, and people often stand in long lines and make the drive to a Crumbl cookie to get that sweet tooth satisfied. You can impress your guests, or even your family for an after-dinner treat, by whipping these up at home. There’s something about a delicious cookie with a rich cinnamon flavor that makes people feel the warmth and love in your cooking. Everyone will love these cookies and be begging for your secret recipe!

While I enjoy making these Copycat recipes, there is also something satisfying about adding your own twist to a recipe! I’ll give a couple ideas to make it Instagram worthy or add a seasonal touch. Serve these cookies for a casual party after a nice charcuterie board, or make them for your family game night!

Why You’ll Love These Soft Churro Cookies

  • Most ingredients are household staples, so you won’t even need to make a trip to the store to whip them up!
  • They are easy to make for a party or event, but look and taste like they came from a gourmet cookie shop.
  • They are great to cook ahead instead of having to put a dessert in the oven and watch over while you’re entertaining guests.

Equipment Needed To Make This Crumbl Churro Cookie Recipe

The beauty of these cookies is that they don’t require a lot of additional tools and piping equipment that some other gourmet cookie recipes might. While the recipe does call for a piping bag and Wilton tip, you can still get the desired result by using a Ziploc bag with the corner cut off. Don’t feel like you need to go out and buy piping bags and tips if you will not use them again in the future.

  • A hand or stand mixer
  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie scooper
  • Cooling rack
  • Piping bag and Wilton 35 tip OR Ziploc bag

What to Serve/Pair with Your Baked Churro Cookies

These churro cookies would be delicious served with an Irish coffee while you and your guests chat after dinner. If you are planning to serve this in a more casual setting, I would suggest having a charcuterie board beforehand. You could also serve a vegetable plate or some light salty snacks. If you’re serving your family, this would be a nice game night treat!

Popular Substitutions & Additions

If you’d like to add some extra cinnamon sweetness to remind you of a churro, you can add a cinnamon crumb topping instead of the light cinnamon and sugar dusting. Just mix together ¾ cup flour, ¼ cup brown sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and ¼ cup melted butter or margarine. Mix together until it becomes a crumbly mixture and sprinkle on top.

If you want to get creative with your cookies, make the basic cookie recipe, and then experiment with your frosting. You could add pumpkin spice for an extra fall flavor, or put some baked diced apples. Garnish with a cinnamon stick if you want to make them picture perfect!

How To Reheat & Store Copycat Crumbl Churro Cookies

Best Way To Store Leftovers

I would recommend storing them in an airtight container while not being served to prevent air drying them out. They can be kept for three days at room temperature.

How Long Will They Last In the Fridge?

Store your cookies in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week. It is recommended to set the cookies out and let them get to room temperature before enjoying if you are storing in the fridge. If you store them for too long, they will lose their moisture, which is the best part of the cookie.

Can I Freeze Them?

These cookies can be frozen for up to a month, just be sure they are stored in an airtight container. Again, I would recommend letting them get to room temperature before serving, and be sure to spread them out to prevent any icing sticking to your other cookies.

How To Reheat Them

These cookies are heavenly when served warm! If you want to eat your cookie warmed up, simply put on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 10-15 seconds. It will give you the warm gooeyness that you get from a real churro.

Crumbl Churro Cookie Recipe FAQs

Are these cookies meant to be a crunchy cookie?

No, they do have a crispness to the outer edges, but the cookie itself is moist and fluffy on the inside. If your cookie is too crunchy, try adjusting your cooking time and take out of the oven a minute or two earlier. You’ll want to be sure that your cookie  is slightly golden on the edges, but not fully browned. It’s also important not to skip the step of letting your cookies cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to the cooling rack. During the in-between time, the cookies are actually still baking on your hot cookie sheet.

Can I substitute something in place of using the eggs?

Yes, I would recommend using applesauce in this recipe if you do not want to use eggs. The recommended amount is ¼ cup of applesauce for one egg. Using applesauce will be the best substitute to maintain the moisture in the cookie. You may also use a plain or Greek yogurt if needed, ¼ cup for one egg. The yogurt will provide a similar consistency, but it may not provide the same level of moisture as the applesauce would.

Can this recipe be made gluten free?

No, for this recipe I would not recommend making substitutions to make the cookies gluten free. Crumbl cookies are known for the fluffiness and moisture of their cookies, and changing your flour type would change the makeup of the cookie. There are many delicious gluten free cookie recipes to try instead!
