I read somewhere that word croissant is French origin, and the mining is crescent. According to legend, Austro-Hungarians bakers bake croissants in honor of the defense of Vienna from the Turks. Idea was to croissants looks like crescent, which is Turkish symbol.
My version of these croissants is easy and very quick. It depends on you, but I need 7-8 minutes to shape, fill them and reheat the oven. Little secret is that you need to daub the croissants with vegetable oil, how they can stay soft. Try it!
