The Wings Of Angels




"We're all kissed by angels but some of us never think to pucker."

Terri Guillemets



"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge...For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways..."

Psalm 91



I have touched the wings of angels, even tasted them, and they are sweeter than you can imagine. Really. You are looking at my latest supermarket find, Cruscik, commonly called Angel Wings. Do you think they look like the wings of an angel? I had to use my imagination. I had never heard of them before now. They are a Polish treat usually eaten just before Lent, a deep fried dough that is sprinkled with powdered sugar. In some countries, husbands give them to their wives on Friday the 13th to avoid bad luck. And in this country they are often served at Polish-American weddings. Nice to have angel wings at your wedding.



"Under the expanse their wings were stretched out one toward the other, and each had two wings covering it's body. When the creatures moved, I heard the sound of their wings, like the roar of rushing waters, like the voice of the Almighty, like the tumult of an army. When they stood still, they lowered their wings." Ezekiel 1:23

Regina said...

(lol)..yes you did and you have such a nack for finding the neatest stuff!! No, I've never tried this but I bet it's yummy. At first I thought it was won ton but you mentioned sugar. They opened a new Safeway in town..I should check. The scriptures are terrific. The one in Ez.about about the creatures and the way they move has always intrigued me!!
(thank you for your kind words too)

With a lot of imagination and squinting my eyes they do, sort of, resemble angel wings.

I have never heard the name before but when I lived in Anchorage I remember a friend of mine made something that looks and sounds very similar. Now I wonder if those were Cruscik. I'll have to keep an eye out next time I'm in the grocery store. Great find Ginny.

I have not heard of these but they sound delicious. I especially am comforted by the Bible verses you have chosen.

DawnTreader said...

Never heard of them. I'm beginning to suspect it's Aprils FooD's Day on the internet, I don't know how many food posts I've run into this morning!

Fred Alton said...

Cruscik, looks like pasta - but you said they were sprinkled with powdered sugar. I'll try anything with sugar on it! ☺

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Are you April fooling me? Because I think those look just like dog rawhide chews! ;-)

My husband says that to be delicious, these have to be eaten before they completely cool off. And, they should be a light golden brown. Maybe I can talk him into making some.

Best,
Bonnie

Melanie said...

Ps. 91 is one of my favorites!

Ron Joe White said...

I've never heard of Cruscik - Angel Wings. They sure sound like something worth trying :-)

Neal said...

Those sound delicious. I've never heard of them,

Doris Sturm said...

No, I have never heard of those before, but I love learning new things. Our grocery store in town is not that progressive and I never find anything but the ordinary and sometimes not even that...

Anyhow, the look of them reminds me of what Southerners call "dumplings" because when they make Chicken and Dumplings here, the "dumplings" are nothing but broad, thick noodles and look just like what you are showing us here.

When I think of Chicken and dumplings, I think of drop dumplings, not noodles...but, you live and learn, right?

They sound good, though this is the first time I have heard of them.

I have never heard of Cruscik's but they sound good. I'll have to check with my husband - he's Polish - and ask if he has heard of them.

How did you find them?
