Celebrate Fat Tuesday With Some Paczkis!
These round, sugar-coated, fruit-filled Polish pastries were served up annually on the day before Lent, a period of abstinence observed by Roman Catholics. Originally, Paczkis were made for practical reasons -- to use up the lard and eggs that were prohibited during Lent. Now, they're more of a last-minute binge of sweets before the lenten sacrifice. Whatever their past, all enjoy the tasty treat Paczki, which means "little package" in Polish.
Available February 9, 10, 11 and 12.
