I'm from NW Ohio, and this time thereabouts (Fat Tuesday) I could pick up a delectable Paczki from a local baker.

Definition of a Paczki:

A deep-fried piece of dough shaped into a flattened sphere and filled with confiture or other sweet filling. Pączki are usually covered with powdered sugar, icing or bits of dried orange zest.

Although they look like bismarcks or jelly doughnuts, pączki are made from especially rich dough containing eggs, fats, sugar and sometimes milk. They feature a variety of fruit and crème fillings and can be glazed, or covered with granulated or powdered sugar. Prunes and rose-petal jam are traditional fillings, but many others are used as well, including lemon, strawberry, Bavarian cream, blueberry, custard, raspberry and apple.

My question is: do any of these fine Southern baking establishments make such a pastry?

That's a shame. I think Southerners would really enjoy them, too. Too bad I don't know how to make them. Thanks for the help, though.

Hey! That might be the ticket. For some reason, I was thinking those last two stores were solely Russian food. It's worth a look, yeah.

Thanks!

Is that the cake that has the Mardi Gras-colored icing on it?
I think I saw some at The Fresh Market yesterday.

I am polish ~american, out of a "Toledo batch", you could say.....hmm, I'm very familiar with Packzi's, I discovered some at Lowes Food Store,(Johnson Road, Ballentyne area, south chlt.), last year.....missed them this year, one of the ladies said they were "in store", in March....they were good though, when I purchased them. Saved the label.....distributed from a bakery out of Penn., not surprising. Also I used to work for Dean and Deluca, (Stonecrest), we had a local bakery that would bring them in, however, that would change frequently as store managers changed.....there is a bakery in Pineville.....they're not exactly open to the public...they supply food businesses, anyway when I visited them there were polish individuals managing it. Paolo bakers or something.....
