Croline is a type of pastry originating from Italy. It is a popular food item in Italian cuisine, known for its unique shape and delicious taste.

History[edit | edit source]

The history of Croline dates back to the early 19th century in Italy. It was first made by Italian bakers who were looking for a new type of pastry to add to their repertoire. The Croline quickly became popular due to its unique shape and delicious taste.

Description[edit | edit source]

A Croline is a small, round pastry that is typically filled with a variety of ingredients. The outer layer of the Croline is made from a dough that is similar to that used in making croissants. This gives the Croline its flaky and buttery texture. The filling of a Croline can vary, but it is typically made from a mixture of cheese, meat, or vegetables.

Preparation[edit | edit source]

The preparation of a Croline involves several steps. First, the dough is prepared by mixing flour, butter, and water. The dough is then rolled out and cut into small circles. The filling is then placed in the center of each circle, and the dough is folded over to create a half-moon shape. The Croline is then baked until it is golden brown.

Variations[edit | edit source]

There are many variations of the Croline, depending on the region of Italy where it is made. Some versions of the Croline include additional ingredients in the filling, such as mushrooms, spinach, or ham. There are also sweet versions of the Croline, which are filled with fruit or chocolate.
