Seadas or Sebadas.
These are one of my Dad’s favorite desserts, he described these delicious cheese filled dough as seadas or sebadas, by that time the web was not like the one we have today, there were no blogs and the web pages did not mention any of this, so I began searching and experimenting until I made what I think is a Seada and now I know why Daddy said they were delicious because they are something more than delicious when I tried one I wanted to eat more and more and the same happened to my nephew who wanted more seadas and we had to make another batch. They are so simple, humble I say, but when you taste them your mouth is filled with flavor, just imagine a golden dough wrapping a soft mass of fresh cheese melted with the scent of lemon peel and all glazed with honey…YUMMMM. Unfortunately I made this recipe too late because Daddy is with God now but I hope he is watching that finally, I “invented” the dough after so many fails.
