Whether you have a sweet tooth, or enjoy more of a savoury offering, the humble croissant is always sure to be a pleaser. The buttery, crescent-shaped treat, that is crispy on the outside and soft and airy on the inside. Often associated with France, it actually originated in Austria in the early 1800s. They have long been a staple in bakeries and patisseries, before joining the mainstream market in the 70s, thanks to development of factory-made frozen ones, that simply bake in the oven.
