3 Places to Try The Latest Croissant Sensation: ‘Le Crookie’


The chances are, you will have heard of the ‘cronut’—the world-famous treat was created in 2013 by a French patisserie chef, Dominique Ansel. Since then, croissants have proven to be extremely versatile indeed, as creations including the ‘croffle’ (a croissant waffle) and croissant-dough pancakes have taken the world of desserts and sweet treats by storm. In 2024, the croissant combo to try is ‘le crookie’—a sumptuous treat made from croissant pastry with cookie dough at its center. Check out these amazing bakeries from around the world, all of which offer the crookie, you’ll just have to get there before they sell out!
