Homemade croissants are delicious, flavorful pastries that can be made from different types of dough: puff pastry, shortcrust pastry, puff pastry, and yeast pastry. The latter two types are ideal if you want your croissants to be particularly fluffy and airy.

One of the culinary blogs (anny.cooking) on Instagram published a recipe for homemade croissants with cherries, based on a very simple yeast dough.
