Rosquillos are Philippine cookies made from flour, eggs, shortening, sugar, and baking powder. They were originally created by Margarita “Titay” T. Frasco in 1907 in Liloan, Cebu.[1][2][3] The name means "ringlet" in Spanish (from rosca, "ring") and was reputedly coined by Philippine President Sergio Osmeña.[4][5]

Despite sharing the name, Philippine rosquillos are not related to the Spanish rosquillos (better known as rosquillas, roscos, or rosquillos de vino), which are more akin to baked doughnuts.[6][7]
