Shakoy is one of my favorite snack or merienda since I was little kid, I always looked forward having shakoy after school or on weekends. This twisted donuts coated with sugar is very popular in the Philippines as " Shakoy" , I don't know why local called it that way. There's lot of street vendors selling Shakoy at the streets, even bake-shoppe sell this yummy snacks too. Today, As usual my craving strike, and so here it is! fresh from my kitchen, and it tasted like back home! It's sweet, soft and ummhh..just simply good! I ate 3 pieces already (hahah) Don't tell!!
