Here in Cleveland and being a very diverse ethnic community many of us buy Paczki on Fat Tuesday. Paczki are a donut that is filled with fruit,cream or custard.All the bakeries here are very crowded with customers waiting to get their PACZKI. I was just wondering if any of you have heard of or have had one.My favorite is the prune filled.Don't these look good ???

 Gale! I'll be your "partner in crime!" Let's go wild and pretend that there's no calories! Laughing I love prunes but if there's vanilla then I'm yours!

Hi Vicki how about vanilla custard filled? Those are yummy too!  Hi Nellie I have had Kolaches but just with the fruit,nuts and cheese filling but all sweet.I didn't know they made savory filled.I know I could find them at the Westside Market.They had a fire there but will be reopening soon.This does sound really good and I will look into them.In Hungary they make yet another version but these are fried and more like a flat bread these are rubbed with butter and garlic or onions,sourcream, sausge all added after frying or could also be sprinkled with powder sugar.In Hungary our nut and poppy seed rols are sometimes refered to as kolach.I love Eastern European cuisine.It's wonderful but maybe not so good for us,but wonderful just the same.

i had a house-mate (actually 3)  my sis and 2 friends, also sisters they were bohemian
they made kolaches sometimes    same dough they made cinnamon rolls with     but no sauusage
a kolache shop near where i worked made them w/ a and put a sausage inside  i don't know where she found the sausage    but it was about 3" long and about 1" dia.       and it was mixed w/ cheese and about once a month i had to take so many to our downtown office that i had to call her the day before

there are some do-nut shops around now attached to valero stations  and they have all kinds of morning  things they do have this same sausage/cheese in a kolache, but most times by the time i get there those are all gone

by the way your picture was not there when i posted a while ago

We have a fantastic bakery just about 2 miles from our condo.  We stopped Saturday morning and bought a dozen.  I think we have two left.  They are so VERY GOOD!  My favorite is lemon, second choice is creme, and third choice is chocolate.  The baker FILLS them to the brim!  I'm sure we will be back there either later today, or early tomorrow morning!  He bakes and sells them as long as anyone comes in to buy them, usually he stops baking them about 3 to 4 days after "Fat Tuesday".

Oh...I am slightly heart broken today.
There is a bakery in Mt. Prospect Illinois. (about 25 miles from where I now live) and they have the BEST and I do mean the Best Paczki.  They have so many different flavors it is always such a difficult time trying to decide what to get. Central Bakery has been there forever and they are so tiny people are just shoe horned in it is really pretty funny. (and it gets worse when the TV cameras show up)
I was unable to get there today because of the long drive...I guess I am sort of happy because of the extra calories that I did not get a chance to consume..
I will make it a point to get there next year, I have a dentist that is right down the street and it just makes sense to see the dentist then go get a Paczki or two, or three.......

I love the custard filled ones way too much.  So this year I decided I could do without them lol.  The grocery store I took my Mom to today was selling them for about $9 a dozen(they have their own bakery in the store) but I walked right past them.  How's that for willpower?  LOL

Just doesn't seem right for me to bring them into the house when my husband can't have any.

I haven't had Paczki, but my sister's hubby is Polish, so I'm sure she's either made them or knows where to get them. My brother-in-law was born and raised in the Polish district of Chicago and really knows where to find all the good ethnic foods.

As for Kolaches, I make them 2-3 times each year, for Christmas, Easter and upon request. Mine are the sweet dough with fillings of poppy seed, apricot and cherry. The recipe I use is from a dear Czech friend of my husband's family in Iowa. It took me a number of years to perfect the dough and process, but I conquered it!

We have a bakery in our neighboring city that makes these and you have to reserve/order them in advance of Fat Tuesday.  If you don't  do this you are out of luck.  The line out the door  is so long, but everybody is in such a good mood that the wait is fun and goes rather fast.
