Croissant is a viennoiserie-pastry named for it’s crescent shape.  The place of origin is France. Today there are many variations to this flaky pastry. They are a common part of continental breakfast but can be enjoyed anytime of the day.  The Kiferi, ancestor of the croissant has been documented in Austria as far back as the 13th century.  However, an Austrian artillery officer, founded a Viennese bakery in Paris in 1838  or 1839. In the 20th century the croissant was referenced as the “fantasy or luxury bread” in early French recipes.
