 Fat Tuesday - Paczki

Author Message

Fat Tuesday - Paczki Fri, 02/9/07 4:42 PM (permalink)
Fat Tuesday is coming up in less than two weeks - February 20th. Paczki or Punch Key or Pooch Key are an annual treat at my home and workplace. All local bakeries in the Western Chicago Suburbs offer them as well as the chain supermarkets on this day only. I have had them all and find the best (of the establishments I've tried) to be from Ingram's Busy Bee Bakery in Downer's Grove, Illinois. They feature 23 varieties of which I have ordered the following:

1. Apricot
2. Bavarian Creme w/ Powder
3. Bavarian Creme / Chocolate Icing
4. Chocolate Custard
5. Lemon
6. Pineapple
7. Poppyseed - my favorite!
8. Raspberry
9. Apple
10. Blueberry
11. Cherry
12. Peach
13. Fresh Strawberry
14. Cheese & Blueberry
15. Cheese & Cherry
16. Cheese & Chocolate Chip
17. Cheese & Raspberry

Not Ordered
1. Buttercream
2. Chocolate Buttercream
3. Fudge
4. Prune
5. Cheese
6. Cheese & Strawberry

Busy Bee stopped accepting orders on the Thursday before last year and the Chicago Tribune reported that they had sold over 10,000 that day. At 6am (opening), the line snakes around the corner but pre-pays - we move to the head of the line! Yee Haw!

For the uninitiated, a Paczki is similar to a solid donut, bismark, pershing etc. Some are filled by the injection method, some ar sliced and layered with filling.

Anybody else partake in this custom and if so, any flavors missing from the list?
