A finished roza karnawalowa

Róża karnawałowa ("carnival rose") is a Polish sweet pastry traditionally prepared for Carnival celebrations, in particular Fat Thursday.[1][2]

Carnival roses are made with three discs of faworki dough of decreasing size. The dough is made from flour, eggs, salt, sugar and a bit of rectified spirit (95% alcohol).[2] After the discs are pressed together and cut to resemble the petals of a rose, they are deep-fried, either in oil or preferably in lard.[2] After cooking, the pastries are dusted with icing sugar, and a glace cherry, cherry jam, or marmalade made from wild roses, is placed in the middle before serving.[3]
