Two Ingredient Cookie Croissant Recipe (Cheat's Crookie Recipe)

My two ingredient cookie croissant recipe lets you get in on the viral crookie recipe trend the easy way.

Cookie croissants – also known as crookies – have taken the bakery world by storm right now. Every bakery is making their own version, but it originated from a bakery in Paris called Boulangerie Louvard, who've been selling it since December 2023.

Now a worldwide viral food, crookies are now being sold by everyone and their dog here in London. And I want some.

While I was planning on buying some over the last weekend, I ended up not having enough time. But I still wanted to eat some of these dreamy-sounding chocolate chip cookie croissants. So I decided to make them at home. And because I was feeling lazy, I decided to cheat.

It's common to use pre-made croissants to make crookies at home (like I did with my matcha almond croissants). Croissants are, after all, a days-long affair when made properly from scratch. But while I could have chosen to use one of my own cookie recipes, I chose to go full-on lazy and buy some premade cookie dough. And it worked superbly.

If you're using chilled cookie dough, make sure you let it come down to room temperature to make it more malleable and easy to squish into shape. Aside from that, this recipe takes around 20 minutes from start to finish.

You can also watch me make cookie croissants on my YouTube channel, Tashcakes:

Ready? Let's go.

(Makes two crookies.)


2 ready-made croissants
350g ready-to-bake cookie dough


1. If your cookie dough is chilled, take it out of the fridge for about an hour and let it soften at room temperature.

2. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with nonstick baking paper.

3. Slice the croissants sandwich-style.

4. Divide the cookie dough into four portions. Squish and flatten a quarter of it to roughly match the shape of the croissant and place it inside one. Do the same with another quarter and press it on top of your cookie croissant sandwich. Repeat with the remaining croissant and cookie dough.

5. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown on top, and leave to cool for 10 minutes before eating.

Enjoy, and have fun.
