I know, you’re saying what the heck is that? And how do you even say it?
Phonetically, it’s sort of like “poonchki.” It’s Polish for a sweet treat similar to doughnut holes. My mother used to make them, particularly on Shrove Tuesday, before Lent begins. I have not had them in probably 30 years.
Agata, Zach’s girlfriend, is from Poland and she wanted to make them for me as a birthday gift. Her recipe was so light, light, light and DELICIOUS!!!
When my mother made them, I don’t think she used a yeast based dough, whereas Agata did and let the dough rise twice. Rolled in cinnamon and sugar, they were heavenly!
