The History of Biscuits Danish

Biscuits Danish were first created in Denmark in the 19th century. The pastry is said to have been inspired by the Austrian pastry, croissant, which was introduced to Denmark by Austrian bakers in the mid-19th century. Danish bakers then took the basic croissant recipe and adapted it to their tastes, creating the light, flaky pastry that we know today.

In 1850, a Danish baker named L.C. Klitgaard introduced the pastry to Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen. The pastry quickly became popular and was soon being sold in bakeries all over Denmark. Today, biscuits Danish are enjoyed all over the world, with many countries putting their own spin on the pastry. In fact, the French version of biscuits Danish is known as “Viennoiserie,” which translates to “Viennese pastries,” as they were also inspired by Austrian pastries like croissants.
