Paczki Day: March 4th, 2014

What are paczki?

paczki

Paczki, pronounced "Punch-key" or "Poonch-key," are sugar-coated, glazed or iced pastries that are filled to the point of bursting with fruit or cream filling. But don't be fooled—they're not jelly donuts or Bismarks. Paczki are made with richer dough, and are larger and round in shape like a baseball.

Paczki Day falls on Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent. It began long ago in Polish households as a way to use up shortening, eggs, and preserves before the 40 days of Lent began. Today, the Paczki tradition continues as a last-minute indulgence before the Lenten fast begins. Whatever the reason, try some delicious Paczki today and create your own family tradition.
