It’s buttery, it’s flaky, it’s French (well, originally from Austria)! Let’s all enjoy a croissant.

National Croissant Day is a tribute to the beloved, buttery pastry that has become a staple in bakeries worldwide. Originating from Austria and brought to fame in France, the croissant is known for its layered, crescent-shaped dough that results in a light, airy texture. This day is delight to pastry lovers and bakers who enjoy eating various types of croissants, from the classic plain to almond-filled, chocolate, or savory varieties. So, on January 27, switch out you sandwich bread with a croissant, enjoy a fresh croissant with butter or even try to make your own croissants (disclaimer: it’s harder than you would think).
