  Croissant - Uncyclopedia
Croissants are valuable not only because of their calorific value, but because they are a primary source of fuel in Azerbaijan.
The world leader would pick up the croissant and be perplexed as to whether the butter and honey should be spread on the outside of the croissant (in the manner of a piece of bread), or on the inside (in the manner of a hot cross bun).
Nowadays, croissants are made in large industrial plants which include all stages of the manufacturing process, from the extraction to the curling of the ends to EU regulation (which states that the croissant must not have a radius of curvature more than 50 centimetres or less than 1 metre).

 Croissant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Croissants are made of a leavened variant of puff pastry by layering yeast dough with butter and rolling and folding a few times in succession, then rolling.
Making croissants by hand requires skill and patience (as one batch of croissants can take several days to complete), but the development of factory-made, frozen, pre-formed but unbaked dough has made them into a fast food which can be freshly baked by unskilled labor.
Croissant pastry can also be wrapped around almond paste or chocolate before it is baked (in the latter case, it becomes like pain au chocolat, which has a different, non crescent, shape), or sliced to admit sweet or savoury fillings.
