Easy Chocolate-Almond Croissants: Refrigerated crescent rolls make recreating this rich French pastry so easy.

The birth of croissant can be dated to at least 1839. But the origin of croissant goes back to  when an Austrian artillery officer, August Zang, founded a Viennese bakery in Paris. This bakery, which served Viennese specialities including the kipferl and the Vienna loaf, quickly became popular and inspired French imitators. The French version of the kipferl was named for its crescent (croissant) shape and has become an identifiable shape across the world.
