History of Pączki

Pączki Day is a Polish tradition and celebration of Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras before Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of lent.  The traditional beginnings of Pączki were to use up all the decadent ingredients in the house before the fasting of Lent began.  Pączki has been a celebrated tradition since the Middle Ages and has evolved from a savory bread like dough, to a modern sweet pastry which usually consists of a decadently rich dose of eggs, sugar, and butter along with a variety cream and fruit fillings.
