credit cookie
n. An extra movie scene played during the closing credits.

Example Citation:
"Don't leave when the end titles start to roll. Credit cookies (those little bonus scenes they stick in between 'Key Grip' and 'Location Catering') are usually used for outtakes showing Matthau and Lemmon blowing their lines, or Jackie Chan breaking his legs. In 'Wild Things,' McNaughton does something new: flashbacks, showing us stuff that was offscreen the first time around."
—Roger Ebert, "Wild Things," Chicago Sun-Times
