Nuss Kipferl Nut Croissant

Filed under: Austrian Pastry,Buy - Order Online — admin @ 8:23 pm

The Kipferl has its origin from the wars of the Austrians against the Turkish. The Kipferl stands for the Turkish crescent which can be eaten symbolical.

When the daughter Marie Antoinette of the Austrian Empress Maria Theresia married the French monarch Ludwig XVI, she brought the Kipferl to France. That implied the croissant which became such an important symbol of France. The only difference between the Kipferl and the Croissant is, the Kipferl from Austria is made of baker’s yeast dough, while the French Croissant is made of Danish pastry.

The baker company Thurner Beugl from the federal state of Burgenland lets the old tradition of the Viennese bakery liven up again. 40 years ago Rosi and Herbert Thurner founded their company Thurner Beugl and in short time they became an important name in Austria. If you once have the opportunity to taste the Nusskipferl from Thurner Beugl, you know the reason why.
