All in the name of Chrus-ciki!

In honor of Fat Tuesday, I attended a "Paczki-Palooza" of sorts! Thanks to Chef Dobra and her family at Delightful Pastries, we helped make chrusciki crueller cookies and fried our own paczki, glazed and filled them.

Chef Dobra talking about the chrusciki dough
which has orange & lemon oils, sour cream
and even alcohol mixed in!
The tool that we deemed as the
chrusciki "doo-dad" or "thingamajigger"
It was a special piece Chef Dobra received from
a family member and is over 50 years old!
The chrusciki or "angel wings" ready for the fryer:Let's get frying!

Behold... the beauty of Chrusciki!
