Someone on Facebook shared a link about making crookies. Like everyone else I said, “Say what? What’s a crookie?”. Crookie is half croissant and half cookie. What a crazy concept, huh? I know, I know.
It was not a good idea to have seen a crookie at midnight. Somehow so quickly, I was craving for one at night in the dark under my covers. It was one depressing night as I was hungry for a crookie. I had to sleep my hunger away.
I made time to bake some crookies the weekend after I discovered them. They were overall pretty easy yet a tad bit messy to make. I just bought a roll of Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough and croissant.
I rolled out the dough as flat as I could but it wasn’t that easy. The dough wasn’t soft enough so I couldn’t make it into the perfect triangular shape of the croissant dough. I basically patched the cookie dough onto the croissant.
Then, I rolled them doughs up!
I threw these crookies into the oven for a little more than 13 minutes in 350 degrees. I only say “a little more than” because after 13 minutes, the cookie inside the croissant wasn’t fully baked in my case. I love raw cookie dough (no shame) but it may have been a tad bit too raw. The reason being is probably because in general, these cookies are supposed to be baked in 375 degrees.
I would suggest try baking them for 13 minutes, take a bite and see what you think! If it’s too doughy for you, then stick them in the oven for a few more minutes.
It’s best to try them when they’re fresh because I personally love soft and crispy textures together for dessert. The croissant brought the light crumbly texture but the cookie added the soft and sweet experience out of the crookie. If you eat one when it’s not fresh, it will just taste like your regular chocolate croissant from Starbucks.
Would I make this again? I’m not sure exactly. I’m 50/50 about it. I probably would not because it was a little too messy for me. At the same time, I probably would bake it again so my friends can try. I wanted to share them but I was too scared that it wasn’t going to work out only because it was too good to be true.
Overall, my crookie experience was quite a sweet one. Who knew you could put a croissant and cookie together! Geez, croissants can go with anything like cronuts, croissant sandwiches, and now crookies. Ok, I know croissant sandwiches are desserts but they’re good as sandwiches.
Anyway, I love cookies.
