"Found @ portuguesedinerdotcom (aka Tia Maria's Blog for the Portuguese Foodie). Maria Dias & her daughter (Lisa Dias) are co-authors of TASTE PORTUGAL, 101 EASY PORTUGUESE RECIPES (Volume 1). -- Here's what they had to say: "Sonhos are light & fluffy doughnut-like pastries that melt in your mouth! Generally, they’re served around the Holidays but this popular fried pastry has become a favorite at nearly every Portuguese celebration." If you could see the pic I can see on the recipe page, you'd understand why that's true. Times & yield were not given & were estimated by me, but do not include cooling time. ENJOY!"
In a lrg heavy pan, place the water, milk, butter, lemon rind & salt over med-heat & bring to a boil.
Add the flour & stir w/a wooden spoon until the flour becomes a soft dough which turns into a ball shape & separates from the sides of the pan. (This is similar to a basic Choux paste that is used for baking eclairs & cream puffs)
Remove the dough from heat & place in a med bowl. Let the dough cool for a few min. Beat in 1 egg at a time making a smooth batter.
Heat the oil to 365 degrees. Shape the dough into rd doughnuts using 2 lrg tablespoons.
Fry the dough by 4-5 pieces at time until golden brown while keeping the heat at a steady temp.
Pierce the sonhos slightly as they cook. Drain on a new clean brown paper bag or paper towels.
While still hot, roll the sonhos in a mixture of sugar & cinnamon.
