Paczki Day

Do you know what a Paczki is?
It is a very wonderful, delicious filled donut. I think I need to even add very yummy to what a Paczki is. Today is Paczki (pronounced "punch-key") Day or Fat Tuesday. For many in Michigan a Paczki is a must have on Fat Tuesday. If you are Catholic Fat Tuesday is just before the beginning of the Lenten season when many give up sweets. A Paczki donut has a sweet filling, lemon or custard are my favorite. The dough is heavy and rich, some come glazed, dusted with sugar or covered with powder sugar.

Happy Paczki Day to you.

I get a recipe for these at work every year. I never make them although the recipe they give us is no different than our regular filled doughnuts. No one has ever asked for them either.
Just to let you know, you do still have the word verification on. I had to go through about a dozen of them before I could find one I could read
