What Is Crookie, The New Viral Dish Where Croissant Meets Cookie In Culinary Fusion?

From the classic croissant to the timeless cookie, food enthusiasts are constantly seeking new ways to tantalise their taste buds. Enter the Crookie, a delectable fusion that marries the croissant with a cookie.

Enter Crookie

A new variation of croissant has joined the list and is already creating a stir in Paris. The bakery Boulangerie Louvard introduced a hybrid of a cookie and croissant in 2022 under the name Crookie, and it has since grown to be one of their best-selling items. Furthermore, a lot of food influencers have copied the recipe.

The crookie’s delicious texture combination has helped it become well-known very quickly. Imagine a crumbly cookie with the rich richness and airy layers of a croissant. If you enjoy croissants and cookies, Crookie will undoubtedly become your go-to bakery. It is not a novel product, as the bakery itself notes, but it is delicious and a lot of fun. It is made at Boulangerie Louvard using their renowned pure butter croissant and Xoco chocolate-infused cookie dough. Each Crookie costs €7.1 when purchased on-site and €5.9 when purchased outside. Its popularity has soared in recent years, captivating the hearts and palates of food lovers worldwide.

At its core, the Crookie embodies the perfect marriage of two beloved pastries: the croissant and the cookie. The croissant, with its buttery layers and delicate flakiness, lends its distinctive texture and rich flavour profile to the Crookie. Meanwhile, the cookie brings its unique elements to the table, adding sweetness, chewiness, and a hint of indulgence to the mix.

How To Make Crookie?

Creating the perfect Crookie requires a delicate balance of technique and ingredients. Like crafting a traditional croissant, the process begins with a laminated dough—a labour-intensive mixture of butter and flour that is meticulously folded and rolled to create signature flaky layers.  Otherwise, you can just go and buy a classic croissant from a good bakery.

1. Set the oven’s temperature to 180 degrees Celsius.
2. Select your preferred croissant, cut it in half lengthwise, and fill the centre with a thin (or thick) layer of pre-made cookie dough.
3. Bake for 20 minutes in a medium oven. It’s good!

The popularity of the Crookie shows no signs of slowing down, as bakeries, cafes, and pastry shops around the world embrace this innovative creation. So, the next time you find yourself craving something sweet and satisfying, why not indulge in the irresistible allure of the Crookie?
