How to Make a Crumble Pumpkin Cookie

Every fall the Crumbl company features at least one pumpkin-flavored cookie in their offerings. This recipe is inspired by one such Crumbl Pumpkin Cookie.

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Cream butter, oil, sugar, and powdered sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. 
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla. Mix to combine.
  5. Next, add in the dry ingredients (flour, salt, and baking powder). Mix well until a dough forms.
  1. Divide the dough into 9 equal portions. Roll them into balls then flatten them on the parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  2. Use the bottom of a 1/4 cup measuring cup (or something similar) to press an indentation in the center of each cookie. Carefully push the dough up around the base of the measuring cup to reshape and form a well. Gently remove with a twisting motion.
  3. Bake for 9 minutes in a preheated oven or until the edges turn slightly golden. Do not overbake. Let the cookies set for about 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Allow cookies to come to room temperature before filling.

Making the Pumpkin Flavor Filling and Whip Cream Topping

  1. To make the filling, combine softened cream cheese and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Cream together until smooth and light in color.
  2. Next, add the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and orange food coloring (optional). Mix until well combined. Then transfer to a medium bowl. Wipe out the mixing bowl. 
  3. In the stand mixer using the whisk attachment, combine the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla. Mix about 2-3 minutes on high or until it reaches a fluffy texture and stiff peaks form. Do not overmix.
  1. Transfer half of the whipped cream into the bowl with the pumpkin mixture. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold together. Then put the pumpkin mixture into a piping bag with a large round tip.
  2. Place the other half of the whipping cream into a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe the pumpkin mixture into the center of each cookie slightly overfilling the indention but leaving some of the cookie edges showing. You may need to gently tap the cookie on the counter to help settle the pumpkin filling.

How to Store Pumpkin Pie Cookies

Leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. However, the tricky thing about storing these and any cookie with a soft topping is that you cannot stack them. I discovered the perfect storage solution for these hard-to-stack cookies and want to share it with you. 

4 Layer Food Storage Container

This container has 4 layers of storage with an airtight seal perfect for storing frosted cookies. It also works great for other hard-to-stack foods such as deviled eggs or leftover pizza. Use it for storage or transporting foods easily. Top rack dishwasher safe.

Tips & Tricks

  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before adding the pumpkin filling.
  • For soft cookies, do not over-mix the cookie dough. This will produce tougher cookies.
  • To make smaller cookies, divide the dough into 18 equal parts instead of 9. Reduce the cooking time to 6-7 minutes. Fill and top as in the original recipe.
  • Let the cream cheese soften before adding to your recipe. This will produce a smoother mixture.
  • Instead of parchment paper, try a reusable silicone baking mat.
  • You can use canned pumpkin for this recipe but be sure to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • If using vanilla extract instead of vanilla bean paste, double the amounts.
  • Garnish with a light sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or a blend of cinnamon and sugar.
  • Add chocolate chips to the dough for a burst of chocolate in every bite.
