It's overfilled with raspberry, strawberry, custard, lemon or even the traditional filling of prune. Then, it's topped with a smooth sugar glaze or rolled in fine granulated sugar. IT's 100% quality, or you can't call it Paczki! The one that I bought was stuffed full of the most delicious blueberry filling. I could have taken either this glazed one, or sugar dusted.
And don't ask about the calories, you just don't want to know.
Paczki are becoming what chocolate is to Valentines and pumpkin pie is to Thanksgiving. Many folks share then with family and friends. In past years, bakeries claimed Halloween as the day that sold the most donuts, but now areas of the country show that Paczki sales surpass even their Christmas figures!
For two weeks of the year, I think I'll be Polish! Yum! Yum!
