1 - Paczki is plural and pronounced Pooch-keyPaczek is singular, meaning one pastry and pronounced Poon-check.

 

2 - Don't call them Jelly Donuts! The yeasty dough used to make these contains more eggs, therefore the flavor is richer.

 

3 - While the Polish name Paczki translates to " little package " they are hardly little.  They are bigger than regular filled donuts.

 

4 - In Poland, the day to splurge on Paczki is the Thursday before Lent, so it is celebrated Feb. 5th and up until Tuesday.

 

5 - Grain alcohol used in the dough before cooking to prevent the absorbtion of oil so the pastry is not greasy.

 

6 - On th eoutside Paczki can be plain, dusted with powered sugar or covered with icing or glaze.

 

Now you know more STUFF...
