Today is Paczki (poonch-key) Day!
A Paczki is like a jelly doughnut, but a bit different. It’s a piece of fried dough that has been sliced and filled will various fruit fillings (prune is a popular one) and dusted with powdered sugar.
They were originally made to use up the sugar, lard and fruit in the house before Lent.
I just like them. I’m buying my King Cake today too.
The American Princess has her own Paczki picture and a slightly different pronunciation.
