"Paczki is a Polish style donut but it's not a donut because it has butter in it. It has eggs. It has milk. It has delicious vanilla in it," said Dobra Bielinski, owner of Delightful Pastries.

Paczki Day is extra special to them. Pre-orders should be placed by Friday, February 17th. The bakery, which is usually closed Sundays, will be open for people to pick up pre-orders on Sunday, February 19th.

You can order online.
