A croissant is a buttery, flaky, crescent-shaped pastry that is popular in many countries around the world. It is made from a laminated dough, which is a dough that is made by repeatedly folding and rolling butter into a flour-based dough. The result is a light, flaky pastry that is often served as a breakfast item or as a snack. Croissants can be filled with a variety of ingredients, such as cheese, ham, or chocolate. They can also be served plain or with a variety of toppings, such as jam, honey, or butter.
