Today is...

April 10, 2014 is

National Cinnamon Croissant Day

It’s National Cinnamon Croissant Day! People have been making delicious croissant pastries since the 13th century, but cinnamon has been around for much longer. The first record of the spice appears in a Chinese manuscript dating back to 2800 BC!

In Ancient Rome, people valued cinnamon more than silver and gold, and spices remained a highly prized luxury good through the Middle Ages. In fact, you could determine a person’s social rank by the number of spices they could afford. People used cinnamon to preserve meat, flavor their beverages, and cure certain ailments. Today, cinnamon is still one of the most popular spices and is a key ingredient in many baked goods.

To celebrate National Cinnamon Croissant Day, bake a batch of scrumptious cinnamon croissants to share with friends and coworkers!

Have you ever made them before and how did they turn out?

I like Normal too. A little cinnamon wouldn't hurt.

I love croissants but I've attempted to make them before and they turned out okayish but it's just easier to buy than to make so I've given up.

Yes, I love croissants.  I like them in a sandwich form or just straight.  I've never had a cinnamon one thogh.
