Deep-fried dough shaped into a flattened sphere and filled with a sweet filling, usually jelly then covered with powdered sugar or icing. And happiness personified.
A donut, a hamburger, a cookie, a circle, a bun, a tire, a potato, a coconut or a life preserver.
Ms. Paczki is the vivacious pastry with the Lady Godiva like hair and red ruby platform shoes, charm (and jelly) are just ooze from her presence. She was originally viewed as a nemesis by Mr. Pierogi, who wasn't comfortable sharing the spotlight, but once the old boy's ego was put into check, she's fit into the Fest family quite well.
