NATIONAL CINNAMON CRESCENT DAY
It’s time to fill the home with warmth on National Cinnamon Crescent Day! Each year, this pastry holiday causes mouth-watering excitement on April 10th.
The crescent-shaped dough is filled with sugar, cinnamon, and butter then rolled, shaped, and baked to a golden brown deliciousness. You can add icing for an extra sweet touch. While they are amazing served piping hot from the oven, these rolls also taste delicious once they’ve cooled down. Don’t hesitate to make extra, because they will not last long.
A crescent roll is similar to a croissant. The outside features a light flaky crust that reveals a warm, buttery inside. The key to a perfect croissant is laminating the dough. Laminating the dough is a process by which butter is folded into the mixture creating multiple thin layers of butter and dough.
While you enjoy eating your crescent roll, remember that cinnamon is a good source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.
