A croissant is a type of crescent-shaped pastry made with layers of buttery and flaky dough. It is traditionally served as a breakfast item or snack and can also be used to make sweet treats like pain au chocolat, sandwiches, and breakfast rolls. Croissants are popular in countries such as France, Italy, and the United States.
The croissant is believed to have originated in France in the early 19th century, though some claim it was invented in Austria. The French version was perfected by Marie-Antoine Carême and became popular throughout Europe. Today, the croissant is enjoyed all over the world!
