The French croissant

The beloved French croissant famously known around the world as a traditional French pastry is actually an adaptation of an Austrian 'kipferl', a traditional yeast bread roll. As the popularity of the 'kipferl' grew amongst the French, an alternative copy of the pastry was created and known today as the French croissant.
