It is one of the most popular snack foods in parties, especially weddings. It is said that a party is not a true Venezuelan party without TEQUEÑOS.
The name "TEQUEÑO" comes from the town of "Los Teques", capital of the State of Miranda, Venezuela, where it is believed this food was originated. The oldest known references to it come from the first decade of the 19th century. At that time the richest families of Caracas would spend long vacation periods in Los Teques, and it is believed that they started preparing them with the leftover dough of another Venezuelan food, "pastelitos".
