Of course I had to buy it, I can never pass up a cool looking kitchen gadget even though I have a basement full of them. I had no idea what a Rosette Cookie was or how to make them but after carefully studying the
pamphlet, I decided to give it a try.
They actually came out great. Light, crispy and not overly sweet. Kind of like a fried dough but lighter. The first few cookies were a bit of an experiment but after getting the timing down, they were actually pretty easy.
You can order a set on Amazon:

Here is a video I made on the Rosette cooking process: How to fry a Rosette Cookie
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Combine eggs, sugar and salt; beat well. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth.
- Heat a rosette iron in deep, hot oil (375 degrees) for 60 seconds.
- Drain excess oil from iron. Dip in batter to 1/4 inch from the top of the iron, then dip iron immediately into hot oil (375 degrees).
- Fry rosette until golden, about 30 seconds. Lift out; tip upside down to drain. With fork, push rosette off iron onto a rack placed over paper towels.
- Reheat iron 1 minute; make next rosette.
- Sprinkle rosettes with confectioners' sugar.
