Adjust the amount of flour to achieve this result, see flour until reaching that point of the dough. Sometimes, according to the liquid elements, add a little more than half a kilo of flour.
We Extend with a roller and cut in circles of about 8-10 cm in diameter (or to your liking, smaller if you want).
We fill with Pumpkin jam and seal the edges well.
Fry in sunflower or refined olive oil (not extra virgin because it brings too much flavor) and we pass through sugar mixed with cinnamon when they are still hot. We Keep in an airtight container once they cool.

Tips and comments

With the dough we propose in the recipe, you can also make the classics Pestiños given that it works as well.

Put the glass of extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan together with anise and sesame. Fry on fire not too strong, to avoid burning the oil. Let the oil cool down, strain it to prevent debris from remaining in the dough and put the oil in a large bowl.
