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.

How to Make SWEDISH ROSETTES.. recipe from my sister Ellyn


  1. Gather the rosette irons,you want to use.
    Combine eggs, sugar, and salt, beat well.
    Add remaining ingredients, beat till smooth.
  2. Heat rosette iron in deep hot oil (350-375) for two minutes.
    Drain excess oil from iron; dip into batter to 1/4 inch from the top,then immediately into hot oil.
    fry rosette till golden, 10-30 seconds.
    Lift out, tip upside down to drain oil back into pan.
  3. If the rosette did not drop off iron when frying...use a fork to push off iron onto a rack over paper towels.
    Reheat iron again in the oil..make another rosette
    Stir batter from time to time as you will get a little oil in it.
  4. Sprinkle rosettes with powdered sugar when dry and cool.
    Put in a pretty bowl and cover with saran wrap.
    Till ready to serve your guests.
    The pretty green bowl was made by my sister(Ellyn),and her husband(NORM) and was given to me as a Christmas present(filled with rosettes)about 1965. They had a plastic factory and this was one of there first items they produced.
