Pączki Day 2017!!

Pączki are pastries traditional to Polish cuisine. They are similar to doughnuts.

They can be filled with any type of filling.  These are filled with chocolate cream, and strawberry jelly.  I usually prefer apricot or Prune/Plum Butter filling, but I decided to try something different this year.

Why a dedicated day?

This day marks the start of the final week of the pre-Lenten celebrations. While the practice of Pączki Day is traditionally observed the day before Ash Wednesday in the United States, in Poland, pączki sales are the highest on Tlusty Czwartek, or “Fat Thursday.” (The Thursday before Ash Wednesday).
