Capturing Sweet Moments: How to Make the Viral Crookie (Cookie Croissant)

Are you ready to impress your guests or give your family a nice treat this week? Look no further than the delicious and viral sensation known as the Crookie – a croissant and cookie that is sure to make your taste buds sing with joy. In this blog post, we'll delve into the step-by-step process of creating this delectable treat.

Introduction to the Crookie Phenomenon

The Crookie, also affectionately known as the Cookie Croissant, has taken the culinary world by storm, combining the flaky goodness of a croissant with the sweet, gooey indulgence of a chocolate chip cookie. This hybrid pastry has captured the hearts and palates of foodies worldwide, and now, you can bring its magic into your own kitchen.

Ingredients You'll Need

  • 6 store-bought croissants (for that perfect flakiness, I recommend picking up a few from 9 Bean Rows in Suttons Bay)

  • Tollhouse Cookie Dough Roll (or your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough)

Step-by-Step Directions

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. This ensures that your Crookies bake evenly and achieve that irresistible golden-brown hue.

  2. Prepare the Croissants: Carefully slice each croissant in half horizontally, creating a top and bottom half. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, ready to be filled with cookie goodness.

  3. Fill with Cookie Dough: Unroll your Tollhouse cookie dough or scoop out portions of your preferred cookie dough onto the bottom half of each croissant. Be generous but mindful not to overfill, as the dough will spread during baking.

  4. Assemble and Bake: Gently place the top half of each croissant over the cookie dough filling, creating a Crookie sandwich. Ensure the edges are sealed to prevent any filling from leaking out during baking. Then, place an additional scoop of cookie dough on top of the croissant. Place the assembled Crookies back onto the baking sheet.

  5. Bake to Perfection: Slide your baking sheet into the preheated oven and let the Crookies bake according for about 10-12 minutes or until the cookie dough is slightly browned.. Keep a watchful eye to ensure they achieve that perfect balance of crisp exterior and soft, gooey interior.

  6. Cool and Serve: Once baked to golden perfection, remove the Crookies from the oven and allow them to cool slightly on the baking sheet. Then, transfer them to a serving platter or plate, ready to be enjoyed.
