Title: Filhós

Subject: Malasada, List of doughnut varieties
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Filhós (or filhozes in plural) is a traditional Christmas dessert in Portugal.

Filhós are usually made by forming a ball from a mixture of flour, eggs, and pumpkin (paste or dough), which is optional. After the dough has risen, it is molded into a doughnut-like shape. Instead of having a hole in the center, like a doughnut, there is a small pouch. After the dough have been deep fried, sugar and cinnamon are sprinkled on top of the cooled dough, they are then ready to eat. It is the shape of the filhós which separates it from its relative, the malasada.
