Traditional recipe of Sonhos with honey topping

Receita tradicional de Sonhos com cobertura de Mel

Portuguese culture is full of flavours and traditional recipes, many of them associated with customs and commemorative dates. The Sonhos, a very popular delicacy, especially at Christmas, is one of those sweets that make us travel back in time to grandma's kitchen. However, they should not only be enjoyed at parties, with Portuguese honeys from meia.dúzia® can cover the "Sonhos" for a more original tasting of flavours, mixing the traditional with the contemporary.
