Rosquillos are one of the baked goodies most associated with Cebu.
Rumored to have been coined by Philippine president Sergio Osmeña himself, the name comes from the Spanish word rosca, meaning “ring.”
Filipino children are wont to play with this ring-shaped biscuit before eating by putting one on each finger of the hand. Adults do it too.
The company most associated with Rosquillos is Titay’s of Cebu, which enjoys the reputation of having been making this cookie treat since the year 1907.
A recent innovation is Rosquillos Corazon (“heart”). The center is cut out in the shape of a heart.
Other companies known for making rosquillos are Shamrock of Cebu and Aling Conching.
