Rosette Cookies

Today I found a Rosette and Timbale Set at a thrift store for $1.99.
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

  1. Combine eggs, sugar and salt; beat well. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a rosette iron in deep, hot oil (375 degrees) for 60 seconds.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. Reheat iron 1 minute; make next rosette.
  6. Sprinkle rosettes with confectioners' sugar.
