Fazuelos, fijuelas or deblas in (Hebrew: פזואלוס / פיג'ואלס / דבלאס‎) are traditional Jewish pastries of Sephardic cuisine. They are the Sephardic equivalent to the Ashkenazi hamantashen.[1]

Specifically, a fazuelo is a fried thin dough made of flour and a large number of eggs. Turkish Jews add brandy to the dough and Moroccan Jews eat them with cinnamon and syrup. They are similar to Andalusian Pestiños, but the latter are eaten with honey.[citation needed]
