Polish Paczki

Ingredients:

1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/3 cup (5 1/3 tablespoons) butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 whole egg
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon brandy
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 gallon oil for deep frying
Granulated sugar (optional)
Confectioner’s sugar (optional)
Fruit paste for filling (optional)
Preparation:

Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in whole egg, then egg yolks one at a time.

Add brandy, dissolved yeast and salt. Beat until well mixed.

If using a stand mixer, switch to the dough hook attachment and add flour gradually to make a stiff dough. Knead on low speed until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. If kneading by hand, knead for about 10 minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour, or follow this Quick Tip to cut the rise time.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Pat or roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut rounds with 3-inch biscuit cutter. Remove scraps and re-roll and re-cut. Cover and let rounds rise until doubled in bulk, 30 minutes or longer.

Heat oil to 375 degrees in large pot or Dutch oven. Fry paczki a few at a time 2 to 3 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Flip them over and fry another 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Drain paczki on paper towels and sprinkle with granulated sugar while still warm. Note: You can poke a hole in the side of the paczki and, using a pastry bag squeeze in a dollop of the filling of choice. Then dust filled paczki with granulated sugar, confectioners’ sugar or glaze.

Paczki don’t keep well, so gobble them up the same day you make them or freeze.

Kolachi
5 cups all-purpose flour
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 pound shortening
1 cup milk
4 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup any flavor fruit jam
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration

Directions 1 Warm milk to just above room temperature. Dissolve the yeast in the milk, set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in the shortening until the mixture is mealy. Stir in the egg yolks and milk mixture. Knead the dough together and then refrigerate overnight. 2 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 3 Dust a clean, dry surface with confectioners’ sugar. Knead the dough for a few minutes. Carefully roll out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out circles with a cookie cutter. Place a teaspoon of jam on the center of each circle, fold the dough over, and seal the edge with a fork. 4 Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not store in an airtight container or they will become soggy.

and lastly, this is really good-
8 cups flour
1 pkg. dry yeast
1 stick of butter or margarine melted
5 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 cups of warm milk
Filling:
1 lb. poppy seed or ground nuts
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks margarine or butter
1 cup milk, hot
1 lemon rind
Combine all filling ingredients and beat well.

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm milk. Combine the flour, sugar, salt and eggs. Add remainder of the milk, butter and yast mixture. Beat until elastic. Sprinkle top with a little flour and cover with a cloth. Let stand in a warm place until double in size. Punch down. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Put on floured board and roll out into a rectangle. Spread cool filling and sprinkle with raisins. Roll like a jelly roll. Place in greased pan and let stand to rise again. Brush top with margarine or butter bake for 45-60 min in 350 degree oven.

Can you use regular nail polish on a Konad stamping nail art design plate?

Question by ichigofruit@ymail.com: Can you use regular nail polish on a Konad stamping nail art design plate?
I recently bought some Konad stamping nail art to try, but I’m curious as to whether or not I can use regular polish on the design plates. I understand that Konad polish is more viscous than regular, but would nail polish purchased at a salon, or even Wal-Mart, work the same way?

Answer by estherxrox
There are some regular nail polishes that work but results may vary..some of the polishes that work are:

* LA Colors Art Deco Nail Art
* Boggi Brites Nail Paint in Pink
* Chanel: Vendetta
* China Glaze nail polishes such as Agent Lavender, Aqua baby, Calypso Blue, Emerald Sparkle, For Audrey, IIV, Midnight Ride, Red Stallion.. work great too..
* Essie: Shorty Pants,
* Finger Paints: Butterscotch Cookie, Easel Come Easel Go, Papier Mache, Silver Sculpture..
* Misa: Dirty Sexy Money, Girl’s Night Out, Heaven White, I Will Survive, Violetta..
* Nubar: Lemon Sorbet, Orange Cream, Pyramid Purple..
* NYC: Skin Tight Denim
* OPI: Alpine Snow, Boris & Natasha, Done Out in Deco, Koala Bear-y, Lincoln Park After Dark, Mod About You, Parlez Vous OPI?, Purple With A Purpose, Rinse Charming..
*Orly: Country Club Khaki, Pointe Blanche, Rock on Red, White Tip
* Sally Hansen: Black, Diamond Strengths 6154-08 Mesmerizing, nsta-Dri Mochachino, Navy Venom, Xtreme Wear Golden Nugget, Xtreme Wear 6213-10 Indigo
* SpaRitual Impression: a true red, Primitive, Surreal, Silver Chrome
* Wet ‘n Wild: Black Creme, French White Creme

Konad’s special polishes are specially formulated to be much much thicker then regular nail polishes (remember, do not use these polishes as a base) and made specially for stamping nail art purposes so you get high quality results each time. however, if you are looking to try out other nail polishes look for nail polishes that are thick, opaque..
