Some people prefer salty, some people like spicy. I am part of the community of people who LIVE for sweets. Having a sweet tooth isn’t the greatest card to be dealt when it comes to overall health, but with a few tweaks, most sweet snacks can be given a healthy, guilt-free twist.
December 9th has been deemed National Pastry Day in the United States, and whether you tend to indulge in a sweet treat on a regular basis or save that for special occasions only, I’d say this is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to something delicious. After all, it is a national holiday!
By definition, in case you didn’t already know, a pastry is a dough of flour, water, and shortening. The difference between bread and pastries is that pastries typically are higher in fat content, giving it that flaky or crumbly texture we all know and love.
One thing you might not know is that there are actually several different kinds of pastries. In fact, although typically we think of a pastry as a very sweet food, they can be a bit more on the savory side, for those whose sweet tooth isn’t as prominent as mine, such as meat pies.
