These Delicious Filhós, I grew up with, were always at our Christmas table and Carnival.
Because they are served hot, there´s a tendency to prepare them just during the cold season. I like them all year round, besides, they are funny to prepare specially with the family because everybody can participate so;
Don´t be fooled by these small “Filhós” just because they are fried. The very light dough and hot oil will make them absolutely light and soft. You don´t even notice any traces of oil because it barely has.
- 500g flour
- 50g fresh yeast (if using dry yeast, reduce the weight by half)

|Beat very well BY HAND (you may get tired, but the more you beat the better it turns)|
