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.
