Servings: Makes approximately 6 dozen Rosettes
 
Comments:
Rosettes are a fragile and very pretty deep-fried pastry originating in Sweden, usually eaten at Christmas. A special rosette iron is needed to make them. Rosette irons in various shapes are available in specialty cooking shops and department stores. The trick to making good rosettes is to preheat the iron in the oil, and to be sure not to dip the iron so deeply into the batter that it coats the top of the iron.

Ingredients:
4 eggs, slightly beaten
4 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 cups milk
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Powdered sugar, or granulated sugar mixed with cinnamon
Vegetable oil, for frying rosettes

You will need: (see note below)*
Rosette/Timbale Iron*

Instructions:
Mix eggs, granulated sugar and milk (I prefer to use the blender). Stir in flour and salt, beat until smooth. In 3-quart saucepan, heat 1-1/2 inches of vegetable oil to 350° for timbales or 400° for rosettes. Heat rosette iron in oil, drain; dip into batter (it should sizzle). Fry in oil until golden in color.

Dip rosettes in powdered sugar or in mixture of granulated sugar and cinnamon.

Makes: Approximately 6 dozen Rosettes.

TIMBALES
Timbales are pastry shells, made by dipping a Rosette Iron with Timbale Shell attachments first into a batter, then into deep, hot fat. When the crisp pastry is pushed off the iron and cooled, it can be filled with a sweet or savory mixture. Timbale irons come in various sizes and shapes such as hearts, stars and butterflies. You can use this recipe to make timbales.

TIMBALES USES:
Fill just before serving with pudding, pie filling, fresh fruit, ice cream, sherbet, etc., for dessert. Or for lunch, fill with creamed vegetables, chicken or meat salad, tuna salad, fruit salad, scrambled eggs, etc.

*Note: You can purchase Rosette and Timbale Irons at many stores on the Internet, such as Cooking.com or Gooseberrypatch.com.

If you wish, you can click on Cooking.com's banner on my website to find the rosette irons at this internet cooking store.


*Note: Rosette/Timbale Irons are also available in specialty cookware stores.

I'm so glad I found your recipe for the cookies. I have had my irons for over 30 years and I lost the recipe for the cookies and had not made them for years. My granddaughters want to keep them and now we have the recipe to go with them. Thanks

Wow, this recipe is the best. I make the Rosettes every year for my friends "cookie swap" Not a crumb of my cookies remains! Suggestion: Clean the oil, heating heavy pan with soap and water, rinse well and keep it sealed in plastic for next year. Believe me, this is good advice.

This recipe is great... just like my mom made every Christmas. Bought a rosette maker at a thrift store and taught my daughter how to make them. This recipe makes about 10 dozen.

This recipe is ok,but I make rosettes every year. I have the large iron and I put 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in the batter and also a little nutmeg, about 3/4 of a teaspoon...makes them more flavorful..There is a Norweigian restaurant that makes these at Christmas in Wisconsin and charges $18.00 a dozen. I believe that is a bit outrageous, I would charge that for the LARGE ones but they sell the small snowflake.
