Way back on Shrove Tuesday, the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the Poles celebrate the last day of parties & festivals by baking & serving "pontshki". This was My Polish Grandmothers recipe. Never Made it--it is very time consuming ! I like this recipe because the doughnuts you get now are nothing like these! The old way is the best way & Taste a whole lot better! Never made these so have no Idea on cooking time or Prep time may be around 60 to 65 because of the yeast & dough rising time?
