Tips for the BEST Honey Bun Cookies

  • When measuring out your flour make sure you spoon and level it to avoid dense cookies.
  • Do not over mix your cookie dough or the cookies will be dense.
  • Use a cookie scoop to ensure your cookies are equally sized and bake evenly.
  • Bake the cookies one sheet at a time for more consistent results.
  • Oven temperatures and bake times will vary. They are ready when the cookies start to crack slightly.
  • If you have a food scale on hand, I like to weigh the cookies to 2.5oz that way I know they will bake evenly

How to Store Crumbl Honey Bun Cookies

The cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a week. If you need to store them longer, I would recommend freezing.

You can freeze the dough to bake later. Simply allow the dough to come to room temperature before you bake.

You can also freeze the baked cookies. To do this, you want to partially freeze them for about an hour in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. This helps ensure that the cookies don’t stick to each other. Wrap each cookie with plastic wrap, then transfer to an airtight freezer bag.

Thaw them out at room temperature when ready to enjoy.

About the Ingredients for Crumbl Honey Bun Cookies

Butter – Using unsalted butter and then adding salt gives you the best control over the amount of salt in the recipe. You can use salted butter if you prefer but you will want to halve the additional salt.

Sugar – We are using a combination of white granulated sugar and brown sugar to get just the right amount of sweetness.

Eggs – It is best if you use room temperature eggs.

Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract will always give you the best results, but you can always use artificial instead if that is what you have on hand.

Flour – Make sure you spoon and level your flour so that the cookies don’t turn out dense. You also want to make sure you don’t over-work your flour when mixing the cookie batter. Only mix until everything is just combined or your cookies won’t be soft and fluffy.

Baking Powder and soda – To leaven your cookies, so they are nice and fluffy. Make sure they are still active for best results! (They should be no older than 6 months.)

Salt – Makes all the ingredients shine, if you use salted butter you may want to use only half of the salt.

Cornstarch – Helps make the cookies super tender.

Cinnamon – Just like your favourite honey buns, these cookies have just a hint of cinnamon.
