Most rosette recipes tell the cook to blot the iron on a paper towel or on flannel before dipping in the batter. Forgot to blot it once last time we made some it left a perfect imprint also. Dipped the iron back in the grease, blotted it, & next one perfect. Another hint - to avoid bubbling of the batter as it cooks only lightly beat the eggs. 5 stars

Great cookie especially if you fill after frying. I drizzle with honey and ground nuts and then spinkle with powered sugar. Wonderful--- my grandmother use to make,disappeared in seconds. A family favorite.I Make them often many times for open house gifts. 5 stars

If you use a deep fryer. Temperature remains constant & Rosettes come out perfect every time. 5 stars

This recipe is the same one my Grandma Lizzie from Norway used, except she used lard instead of oil. I use a mixture of both.

Grandma taught me to keep an old towel next to the deep fat fryer and "bang" the rosette iron on the towel a few times to knock off the excess oil before dipping the iron in the batter. (This method ensures that the batter sticks to the iron.)

If you dip the iron too far into the batter and it goes over the top of the iron, scrape off the overage with a fork or it will be difficult to remove the cooked rosette from the iron.

A large meat fork works well to flip the rosette over in the hot oil and then remove the rosette from the oil.
5 stars

The recipe is good and it works but you shouldn't have to remove it with a fork it should drip right off in the oil so that you can flip them otherwise no other problems 5 stars

For a better cookie - try using eggnog instead of milk. It worked great and the cookies have an added taste! 5 stars
