The story behind the croissant recipe
The origins of this freshly baked pastry date back to 1683, when the Turks besieged the capital of Austria. The croissant was introduced to the French court in the 17th century by the Austrian princess, and Louis XVI’s wife, Marie-Antoinette.
However, the traditional croissant, that we know and love today, is made with leavened puff pastry.
The combination of leavened dough and puff pastry dough give the croissant its multi-layered structure and light and crispy texture.
