Today is Fat Tuesday and if you've ever been around a Polish neighborhood it's also know as Paczki day. It's not unusual for bakeries in Polish neighborhoods to have long lines of people wanting to buy Paczki. Some of the larger bakeries in the Chicago area will sell over 50,000 Paczki today.

Paczki are deep-fried pieces of dough shaped into flattened spheres and filled with sweet filling. Paczki are usually covered with powdered sugar, icing or bits of dried orange zest. A small amount of grain alcohol is added to the dough before cooking; as it evaporates, it prevents the absorption of oil deep into the dough.

Although they look like German berliners, North American bismarcks or jelly doughnuts, paczki are made from especially rich dough containing eggs, fats, sugar, and sometimes milk. They feature a variety of fruit and creme fillings and can be glazed, or covered with granulated or powdered sugar.
