Put icing on top or powdered sugar or roll in cinnamon sugar.
 
Boozy Custard

4 oz sugar
Put in a heavy saucepan and heat over high heat.
In a mixer whip together:
4 yolks
3 eggs
4 oz sugar
4 oz cornstarch
When the milk is raising pour egg mixture in and vigorously whisk the mixture until thick, this will take about 2 minutes.  Turn off the heat.  Put the custard in a mixing bowl and stir with a paddle add vanilla extract and vodka to taste.  Put in a piping bag and fill the paczki.  Sift powdered sugar on top or leave as is if you do not want it overly sweet.

TIPS:
Remember to make sure the dough is cool before stuffing.
Make sure you when you are allowing the dough to proof make sure it’s at room temperature
Be sure to watch the temperature of the pan when making the custard so it does not burn
Get creative with your fillings add in fruit, chocolate or different extracts to give it more variety
Switch up your liquors, vodka offers a flavor-free option, however flavored liquor, rum, and brandy are all great options for boozing up your baked goods.

    It's fairly easy to find and/or compute "American" measurements on the internet. There are multiple programs designed to do just that.

    Even after converting measurments, some things are still off. There's no yield on this, but I'm guessing if it's calling for well over 8cups of flour, it's not meant for a home baker that wants a little batch. Even if you try to halve them, it's pretty hard to halve eggs and tablespoons.

    Better to just buy them like I do anyhow
