What Are Packzi ?

Polish Americans celebrate Paczki Day on the same day as Fat Tuesday. And if you don't know, Paczki are a deep-fried piece of dough filled with confiture or other sweet filling. They're not unlike a (jelly) doughnut. Paczki are usually covered with powdered sugar or icing.

Where can you find these delicious treats in the neighborhood on Paczki Day? Alliance Bakery - 1736 W. Division Street - in Wicker Park is making both the King Cakes and Paczki but you've got to make reservations for the King Cakes. The paczki at Alliance Bakery are $2.25 each and they're offering many different types of flavors including: Raspberry Rose with Rose Glaze, Apple topped with Cinnamon Sugar, Strawberry, Apricot Orange, Vanilla Bean Pasty Cream with Chocolate Ganache, Bing Cherry and Fresh Blueberry with Lemon Zest Glaze.

You can also find paczki on Fat Tuesday at Oak Mill Bakery 2204 W. North Avenue and Glazed & Infused 1576 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park. Glazed and Infused's flavors include: Chocolate, Jam, Lemon and Vanilla Cream. They'll have them until they sell out so go early.
