Happy Croissant Day everyone! This holiday is celebrated every January 30th in the United States. On this day we are encouraged to eat Croissant's and I can't think of a better thing to do. I love croissant's and find myself buying or baking them every chance I get. I do enjoy them stuffed with ham and cheese as a breakfast food and I love them stuffed with chocolate or fruit as a dessert. Keep an eye out on my posts because I'm working on a page about ways to eat croissant's.
A croissant is a buttery, flaky, pastry named for its crescent shape. Croissants are made of a layered yeast-leavened dough. The dough is layered with butter, rolled and folded several times in succession, then rolled into a sheet, in a technique called laminating. The process results in a layered, flaky texture, similar to a puff pastry.
