A croissant is a buttery, flaky, and crescent-shaped pastry that originated in France. It is made from layered yeast-leavened dough, which is folded and rolled several times to create a multilayered structure. The dough is then baked to perfection, resulting in a light and airy texture with a golden-brown crust.

Croissants are often enjoyed as a breakfast or snack item and can be plain or filled with various ingredients such as chocolate, almond paste, or ham and cheese.
