Local Bakery Offers Cheesecake-Stuffed Paczki for Fat Tuesday
Paczki, the local hallmark for Fat Tuesday, just got a little more tempting with Peteet’s Famous Cheesecake’s decadent twist.
For Fat Tuesday on February 12th only, Peteet’s Famous Cheesecake in Oak Park is offering cheesecake-stuffed paczki using their famous cheesecake in a custard filling.
Flavor offerings include original, lemon, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, apple and – new this year – a margarita cheesecake paczki with a hint of key lime and tequila.
“People were so excited when we did this last year. Our cheesecake-stuffed paczki were a huge hit and we have had people asking for them already again this year,” said Patrick Peteet, owner of the Oak Park bakery.
The prices are: $1.85 each, $9 for a half-dozen and $16 for a dozen.
Peteet's is also introducing a new cheesecake flavor, a gluten free Sweet Potato cheesecake made with a ginger snap crust.
Paczki and cheesecake will be available by special order by calling 248.545.CAKE (2253), or by visiting the store located at 13835 9 Mile Road in Oak Park.
