How to cook Scandinavian rosettes
After the batter is made, heat a rosette iron in 2-3-inches of oil to a temperature of 365-375° F (medium-high heat) in a heavy pot or pan. If your oil is too hot or too cold, the batter will not adhere to the rosette iron.
Dip hot rosette iron into batter, being careful batter only comes three quarters the way up the side of the iron. Do not dip so deep that the batter flows over the top as this will create a rosette that is hard to remove from the iron without breaking.
It is hard to see in this photo but the batter is just to the edge of the top.
Plunge the batter-covered rosette iron into the oil, completely submerging it.
You’ll know that you’ve done it properly when the sides of the cookie almost immediately flare out away from the iron.
After a minute or so the rosette should fall from the iron. Sometimes using a fork or metal skewer is helpful. Fry rosette in the hot oil until golden.
Lift the rosette out and allow excess oil to drain.
Place rosette on paper toweling placed on a wire rack to cool. Reheat iron; drain and repeat.
Sift powdered sugar over cooled rosettes, if desired.
Recipe source: Better homes and Gardens Heritage Cookbook copyright 1975, Page 168 but you will find recipes for Rosettes are all almost exactly the same including the recipe found in The Norske Nook Book of Pies and Other Recipes
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

- powdered sugar
Fry rosette in the hot oil until golden. Lift rosette out and allow excess oil to drain off.
Place rosettes onto paper toweling placed on a wire rack.
Reheat iron; drain and repeat.
Sift powdered sugar over cooled rosettes
Usually my Rosette slides off of the iron during frying. I Continued frying until golden brown, then remove from oil with a fork (or tongs), to paper towels for cooling. My Rosette iron is so old that the rosette part does not stay tightly screwed onto the handle and I have to continually tighten it by rolling the hot edge on the paper towel. No fun! I think it is time to order a new one 🙂
