Cronut contender: Enter the Crookie
By Grace Cutler
Published July 09, 2013
If the Cronut is the love child of a doughnut and a croissant, the Crookie, which is a mix of a croissant and an Oreo cookie, is a chocolate-filled kissing cousin.

The pastry’s flaky layers are stuffed with crushed Double Stuff Oreo cookies, then topped with another melted Oreo on top. 

This tasty treat is the brainchild of Toronto pastry chef Olivier Jansen-Reynaud, owner of Clafouti Patisserie & Cafe, who insists he didn’t get his inspiration from Dominique Ansel’s wildly popular pastry. In fact, he swears he’d never even heard of the Cronut before a local blog, The Grid, asked him and other bakeries to come up with inventive dessert mashups.

Crookie
Part cookie, part croissant? That’s right. You can find the crookie—made by packing crushed Oreos into croissant dough—at Toronto’s Clafouti Patisserie et Cafe. Its origin story is strikingly similar to that of the Townie: Local magazine challenges pastry chefs to come up with the next cronut, and, voila, a sweet, addicting Frankenpastry is born. Yelp reviewers call the crookie “heavenly” and say, “It was kind of like eating a chocolate croissant but a gajillion times better.” And with mentions on Good Morning America and in The Daily Mail, this is one food fad getting plenty of buzz outside of its native Canada.
