Crumbl cookies have burst onto the scene and the bakery has thrived despite the conditions of the last few years. But how on earth do they get those big cookies to hold shape and texture? There’s a few tricks I’ve learned and they’re even vegan friendly! So ditch the eggs and dairy, and try this copycat vegan marshmallow sprinkle recipe using vegetable shortening and chilled dough. 

Tips for making sure your cookies hold shape

I could not figure out how to keep mine from spreading out into each other for the longest time. Here are the things I did to make sure my vegan Crumbl cookie recipe holds shape:

  • Use vegetable shortening instead of oil or butter.
  • Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 3 or more hours or overnight at best.
  • Chill the cookie sheet too. 
  • Use parchment paper instead of greasing the pan
