It’s a big day at Oakmont Bakery, because pączkis are back for the season.
Every year, the bakery begins it pączki production on January 6, kicking off a pastry season that lasts through Easter, which this year falls on Sunday, April 4.
Pączki (pronounced Poonch-Key) is a traditional, overstuffed Polish treat made with a yeast dough, and filled with various creams or fruits, and topped with a sugary sweet glaze.
They’re available at Oakmont Bakery daily in store, in more than a dozen flavors, including:
- Cookies ‘n Cream
- Maple Bacon
- Oakmont Cream (Chocolate Buttercream)
- Pittsburgh Cream (Vanilla Buttercream)
- Peanut Butter Cream
Pączki are one of the most popular treats every year from Oakmont Bakery. Back in 2017, a rep for the beloved bakery told us that on busy days during the season, they’ll sell between 700 at 1,000 of the softball-sized treats.
Pączki are $2.25 each, and $13.50 for six. They can be ordered online in advance, and are available for walk-ins.
