Thursday , December 31st , 2015

National Croissant Day is on January 30, so there’s no better time to delight in the light, flaky and buttery rolls traditionally made with puff pastry.

A plain croissant is perfect for slicing and stuffing with your favourite sandwich filling, making it a versatile pastry that can be enjoyed any way you like — at any time of day.
