A new introduction to Mumbai’s food-scape combines the croissant and the cookie as a baked dessert. We taste this limited-edition, calorific treat to see if it lives up to the hype

Just when croissant lovers, like us, thought they couldn’t possibly get more innovative with the pastry after the recent fervour around sandwich croissants, pinwheel croissants, cruffins (croissant plus muffins) and cronuts (croissant plus donuts), Boulangerie Louvard, a small bakery in Paris, has gone viral on the Internet for introducing the crookie. Naturally, this sinful combination of croissant stuffed and layered with cookie dough is being adapted by enterprising bakeries around the world. Two such eateries in Mumbai — House of Amel and The Sweetish House Mafia — have now joined hands to introduce a limited edition of this dessert for the city’s saccharine-craving foodie.

We placed an order to be delivered at our newsroom in Bandra East. Since the pick-up point was The Sweetish Café by The Sweetish House Mafia in Lower Parel, it took nearly an hour to reach its destination. The crookie was mildly warm when it arrived. We heated it for 30 seconds in the microwave before digging into it. While the croissant was not as flaky or pretty-looking as we had imagined, it blended well with the layers of cookie dough on top, and slathered in between the pastry. The dough was loaded with large chunks of choco chips that made the crookie a tad gooey upon heating. Overall, we would have preferred a crunchier croissant because we found the pastry tough to negotiate. Meant strictly for those who love a chocolate and dough overload, fans of savoury croissants should stay away.
