Rosettes Recipe


Recipe from the book "Swedish Cakes and Cookies"

Makes Approx. 20 Pastries


  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • Deep frying: vegetable oil
  • Garnish: sugar


  • Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl that is wider than the rosette iron.
  • Heat the oil to 360 degrees. Use a thermometer or do the "bread test"*.
  • Heat the rosette iron in the oil at the same time.
  • Remove the iron and let excess oil drip off.
  • Dip in the batter.
  • Hold over the deep fryer to set the batter a little.
  • Deep-fry until golden, around 1 minute.
  • Loosen from the iron with a fork.
  • Drain on paper towels. Reheat the iron before frying the next rosette.
  • Dip the rosettes in sugar.
  • Place a cube of white bread in the hot oil. If it turns golden brown after around one minute, the temperature is correct.
