5 Secrets To The Perfect Cookie

Tips & tricks to achieve the most delicious cookies of your life!

There are so many reasons to make this Crumbl Cookies and Cream Milkshake Cookie recipe. Number one…they are giant! They are huge cookies full of Oreo cookies in both the cookie and the frosting. That is a win-win in my book.

They are also soft and yet they have texture from the Oreo cookie chunks. It is a fabulous mixture of awesomeness that you need in your life, STAT!

Ingredients Needed to Make these Cookies and Cream Milkshake Cookies

  • Vanilla Cake Mix-the perfect starting point for a moist and delicious cookie.
  • All Purpose Flour-added to give the cookie dough a little more stability and give you a giant, thick cookie.
  • Eggs-an ingredient that is added to most baking recipes to both bind the cookie dough and add richness.
  • Butter-melted and used in place of vegetable oil, it gives this cookie a wonderful rich flavor.
  • Sour Cream-for a bit of tang to help offset the sweetness.
  • Oreo Cookies-chopped coarsely and added to the cookie dough for an amazing texture.

Frosting:

  • Butter-added for flavor and to give the frosting the creamy texture we love.
  • Powdered Sugar-also called confectioners sugar, it is important in most frosting recipes for the sweetness without the grit you get from granulated sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract-flavor, flavor, flavor!
  • Milk-use whatever you have on hand. It is going to thin out your frosting.
  • Oreo Cookies-chopped finely for added texture but not so large that they can’t be piped onto the cookie.
  • Mini Oreos-for the top of each cookie because…why not?

How to Make these Copycat Crumbl Cookies

1. Combine the cake mix and all purpose flour, whisk the ingredients together. Add the eggs, melted butter and sour cream. Combine using a hand held {or stand} mixer until you have a thick dough. Add the coarsely chopped Oreo cookies and stir until they are evenly distributed.
