It is best to leave it for the night in order for the filling to solidify

Thoughtsย 

Mazurek is a traditional Polish dessert for Easter. There are thousands of recipes for it. This one is a simple one, but it tastes fantastic. The flavor of the filling is best comparable to dulce de leche. It a sweet, sticky, caramel like substance.

I love making it, and I have a lot of fun decorating it differently each year. I’m excited for tomorrow to enjoy this fantastic pastry!

Happy Easter! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
