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!

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.
Nope I don't like croissants.
Love plain (with a bit of strawberrry jam) and chocolate ones.
