Does anyone know the name of a Polish pastry that is long and sorta twisted like a cruller usually sprinkled with powdered sugar. It is a delicate dough. Thanks!

Yes, those are the ones. MMMMMMMM they look so good. I was in Milwaukke last weekend but couldn't find them. I did, however, eat at a very good Polish restaurant!

You can make them - they aren't difficult. I made them this week for my son's ethnic day at Cub Scouts.

The one and possibly only good thing about my ex's Mother was her ability to make the most incredible dish..well snack really. I do not know the correct spelling but to a British ear it sounded like it was called:

Pastacheeky. Any ideas? God that was lovely. :)

Pasticziki - like eggrolls but with cabbage and mushrooms in them?

Hmm, sounds right, but definitely no egg or mushroom.
I'd have said more a glorified sausage roll...it was minced meat, other goodness (green stuff usually) wrapped in puff pastry, cooked and enjoyed. But she definitely said it was called pasticziki (pastacheeky)

Is there more than one version?

Yes - Paszteciki probably (thanks for the spelling correction) Some recipes do have finely minced hard-boiled egg and most have minced mushroom but usually a dried mushroom which would be hard to distinquish from the minced meat. They are great! I wish I had a good recipe

I knew the twisted dough with powered sugar as gruzdi. They were always available at weddings.I would enjoy seeing a recipe for them. Any recipe available?

I know them as Kruschickies or something that sounds like that. Dough fried in oil then powdered sugar on them.

they are called Faworki if it is only dough with a covering of powdered sugar. If they are stuffed with something they are called something else: paszteciki contain pate or perhaps mushrooms, szpinakowce contain spinnach, etc..

Those look like kiflis (pronounced kee-flees) They are usually made only for Christmas. My family still makes them.
