National Croissant Day


I was first introduced to croissants while on a college internship in Copenhagen, Denmark. Each morning, as I traversed the walking street near my destination, I learned to stop in at a pastry shop.





What started as one croissant in the morning, turned into two. I mean, that light crispy wonderful exterior and whispery flakiness inside required a double! Often it became one topped with sliced almonds and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar and filled with a delightful almond filling.




And it became increasingly difficult to resist a plain one… filled with melty chocolate bits.





If I was choosing a breakfast sandwich, that deserved a plain croissant, which was stuffed with a BLT and sometimes cheese or even a fried egg. Ahhhh… enjoy National Croissant Day.
