National Pastry Day!

What is National Pastry Day?
National Pastry Day is a fun day created to encourage you to make and eat your favorite pastries. Make savory pastries or sweet/either one.

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites (see pastry day greetings) but no reference to the background of this holiday. Such as- why the month of December and why the 9th day??  That's the question...

This holiday is still referred to as a "National" day- as all food and drink holidays are.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a  Food Holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So enjoy the day and have fun with it.

We found recognition from calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday. Pastries are popular all throughout the year, especially during the holiday season. That's why we find so much talk on sites about sweet pastry recipes. Did you know that "Pastries go back to the ancient Mediterranean paper-thin multi-layered baklava and filo?"   Live everyday like a holiday!

Definition of a Pastry
Wikipedia encyclopedia tells us "Pastry is the name given to various kinds of baked goods made from ingredients such as flour, butter, shortening, baking powder or eggs." "It may also refer to the dough from which such baked goods are made." "Pastry dough is rolled out thinly and used as a base for baked goods." Common pastry dishes include pies, tarts and quiches."

"Pastry is distinguished from bread by having a higher fat content, which contributes to a flaky or crumbly texture." "A good pastry is light and airy and fatty, but firm enough to support the weight of the filling." "When making a shortcrust pastry, care must be taken to blend the fat and flour thoroughly before adding any liquid." "This ensures that the flour granules are adequately coated with fat and less likely to develop gluten." "On the other hand, overmixing results in long gluten strands that toughen the pastry." "In other types of pastry, such as Danish pastry and croissants, the characteristic flaky texture is achieved by repeatedly rolling out a dough similar to that for yeast bread, spreading it with butter, and folding it to produce many thin layers of folds."

"Many pie recipes involve blind-baking the pastry before the filling is added." "Pastry dough may be sweetened or perhaps unsweetened."
