A pączek is a deep-fried piece of dough shaped into a flattened sphere and filled with confiture or other sweet filling. Pączki are usually covered with powdered sugar, icing or bits of dried orange zest. A small amount of grain alcohol (traditionally, Spiritus) is added to the dough before cooking; as it evaporates, it prevents the absorption of oil deep into the dough.
[...]
Pączki have been known in Poland at least since the Middle Ages. Jędrzej Kitowicz has described that during the reign of August III, under the influence of French cooks who came to Poland, pączki dough was improved, so that pączki became lighter, spongier, and more resilient.
[...]
In Poland, pączki are eaten especially on Fat Thursday (the last Thursday before Ash Wednesday). Many Polish Americans celebrate Pączki Day on Fat Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday). Traditionally, the reason for making pączki was to use up all the lard, sugar, eggs and fruit in the house, because they were forbidden to be consumed due to Catholic fasting practices during Lent.

In the large Polish community of Chicago, and other large cities across the Midwest, Pączki Day is celebrated annually by immigrants and locals alike. In Buffalo, Toledo, Cleveland, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee, South Bend, and Windsor, Pączki Day is more commonly celebrated on Fat Tuesday instead of Fat Thursday. Chicago celebrates the festival on both Fat Thursday and Fat Tuesday, due to its sizable Polish population. Chicagoans also often eat paczki on Casimir Pulaski Day.

They're more similar to a filled doughnut than anything else.

Yesterday was President's Day, today is also Shrove Tuesday (or Fat Tuesday, and better known as Pancake Day), and tomorrow is Ash Wednesday.

Oh, and today is the start of Mardi Gras. I'm sure someone would be interested in that little known celebration.

That works better if you don't know it's pronounced (loosely) "poonch-zki"

I've never had a doughboy that had a filling.

I would like you to know that I was treated to this joyful exclamation yesterday, live, whispered in glee in my ear. Also, apparently the Pączki Fairy looks just like my mother-in-law.

In Peru, they are called Picarones, and served with syrup.
