SWEDISH ROSETTES.. recipe from my sister Ellyn

Nancy J. Patrykus


This wonderful recipe and green bowl was given to me in the 1960's from my beautiful younger sister.
It was the first time I had ever tasted this wonderful delightful fried Swedish cookie.
She then walked me through the recipe steps while I made my first batch. Wonderful memories!
She is gone now,but not forgotten I will part with her recipe..but never my treasured green bowl!
I try to use it every Christmas in her memory.
Please enjoy.
