Rosquillos Festival 2009

May 26, 2009

You are invited to come and celebrate the colors and delicious ringlet cookies of taga liloan, the Rosquillos Festival 2009.

As this year 2009, they are thankful to there beloved patron Saint. Sr. San Fernando Rey, A king and Saint for giving them the wealth and peace for there community.

What is the story behind the Rosquillos?

The making of these little ringlet cookies date back to April 3, 1907, when the then 21-year-old Margarita “Titay” Frasco was tinkering in her kitchen with her baking ingredients and made her new culinary creation.

Kneading the dough manually and using a wooden eggbeater, some baking tins and a clay oven, little did the 21-year-old know that she was starting a product that would put her little town in the national and international map of gastronomic delight.

The market for her unnamed cookie started with her neighbors and passersby who were offered the snack as a freebie for every purchase of a bottle of soda. It was then Cebu governor Sergio OsmeƱa, who later became Philippine president, who gave it the name rosquillos after the Spanish word rosca.

As years passed, people going to northern Cebu have made it a habit to drop by the store to buy the rosquillos. It is also a known fact that those who couldn’t visit Cebu would ask friends who are in Cebu to buy some for them.

Rosquillos have become a household name, a product that is aptly celebrated in a festival that Liloan could call its very own.
