What is that?!
It's a Polish pastry like a thick filled donut (but much better) sold for Fat Tuesday before Lent. It is something that seems specific to the MidWestern Polish immigrant communities. Mr F had never heard of them before living here and he is 1/2 Polish.
My Busia used to make them! (In Indiana)
WE got those when I lived in Chicago... y family was polish immigrant... We live on West Coast for now and I feel deprived of everything..
"Poonch-kies!" (how do you guys say it? I have no idea how to actually pronounce it but that's what we call them)I haven't had one since high school. Feels like EONS ago. salivating. I saw it this morning in my reader and actually clicked back to just look at the box. I think there are like 80,000 calories in a half of one. and totally worth it. (so I take it the vomiting has run it's course? ;)
I remember you saying you were going to miss these when you moved to Asheville.. I really want to try some of these. Perhaps you could start a side business shipping them to people who want to eat them but can't get them. Kind of like my mom sends Care packages of tastykakes to family living outside of the area.
i'm going to nee you to overnight a box of those to alaska. mandi & steve are here and are freaking out at the lack of panczis.
why can't i edit on this thing? i meant to say need.
oh - and one more thing - i was at this wildlife conference and scored a real life panczi recipe from a polish scientist after explaining how for some reason these delicious treats only exist in MI in the United States. i will try to dig it up and send it to you... it requires about 39 hours of work if i remember correctly.
there isn't an "n" in paczki but there is a "k"? i've been gone too long. okay i'm done now. paczki out.
I was a paczski machine yesterday. Bavarian Creme? Devoured. Plum? Annihilated. Ricotta? Destroyed. Twice. Apricot? Demolished.Self Esteem? Missing.
megO,no n but pronounced with an nnext year I'll remember to ship 'em out to you!Smitty,hey it's once a year... it's a set up for failure. Katieo,that's how I say it and how Meijer's tells you to pronounce it on their little bakery signs. But the other day I said that and two people corrected me with "Punchkeys"... but, who knows, they could be wrong!
