Flaky buttery croissant.
A brief history of the croissant:
The ‘kipferl’ was believed to be the spiritual ancestor of the croissant. Austrian based, the kipferl is a crescent-shaped morning sweet made plain, with nuts or other fillings. It is a denser and less flaky bread, made with a softer dough. The history of the kipferl dates back to the 13th century where it is referenced as a “sweet” and wasn’t until the mid-16th century that the Austrian treat became part of the ‘morning pastry’ category.
