Sometimes a cup of tea just isn’t good enough without a trusty steed. After all, what would a high tea be without a little pastry or two? As I was sipping a morning cup of tea a few days ago, I was thinking, “Man, I could really go for a pastry-like treat right about now”… and then it hit me… a spelt croissant.
Well, I am not going to lie to you, my croissants did not come out quite as I had expected. After all the prep work, and chilling time, and vegan butter folding, I ended up with something that had not risen, and was vaguely croissant like. As I looked at the sad croissant with disappointed eyes I decided to take a bite. Low and behold the sad flat croissant was a really tasty cookie, or should I say “crookie”.
This cookie is adorable because it looks like a little mini croissant, and it is really tasty because it has croissant filling (chocolate, almond, cinnamon, tried carob… not so good).
They are at their tastiest for 2 or 3 days, which is fantastic, because the cookie making part is sort of involved.
Ok, Ok… I’ll get to the good stuff!
