The weekend before Lent and NPR was doing a feature on Paczkis - Polish donuts baked just before Lent to use up all the butter and eggs before the fast.  Headed to Philadelphia's Port Richmond section and to the Baltic Bakery.  Had to try them.  Like a jelly donut, but with a firmer dough.

While there a couple of guy's came in carrying that afternoon's supply of Chrusciki - incredibly light fried dough, dusted with sugar.  Had to get a bag full.  Also picked up a sweet dough Cheese Babka and half a Poppyseed Rolled Cake.  

Can't come here on an empty stomach again.
