It's been years since I've made rosette cookies. Or maybe they're just called rosettes? Do you even know what I'm talking about? Chances are your mom or grandma made them but I doubt many of you have. I came across the egg shaped rosette iron and colored powdered sugar, do I need to say more?
Easter Egg Rosettes!
Now do you remember what I'm talking about?
The crunchy little crispy cookie is called a rosette and comes in many shapes.
I've never really seen a rose shaped rosette now that I think about it.
Most of the time they are sprinkled with white powdered sugar, but the Wilton colored powdered sugar makes them perfect for Easter.
I'm going to use this pack of colored powdered sugar sooooo much!
I found it at Joann Fabrics and is made by Wilton, marketed for doughnuts.
This is all you need to get started.
Each of the Wilton powdered sugar colored tubes has a sprinkle top. Yay!
If you can't find the colored powdered sugar, you can make your own by adding powdered food color to regular powdered sugar.
Next mix up the rosette batter. (Recipe Below)
Dip iron in oil and remove.
Line a baking tray with a paper towel.
Next, dip the iron in the batter and then lower it into the hot oil.
Remove the rosette from the iron and place on paper towel and cool.
Have you ever sprinkled something with powdered sugar, only to have it melt away in seconds?
Worry no more...here's the trick...
Use non melt powdered sugar as the base.
Yes, there is such a thing!
First sprinkle the egg with the non melt powdered sugar, then with the Wilton colored powdered sugar.
- 1 cup flour
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 cup milk
Heat oil (370 - 400 degrees).
Before first use, immerse rosette iron in hot oil for a few seconds.
Remove and proceed with recipe.
Combine all ingredients and beat well.
Refrigerate batter for two hours.
Dip rosette iron into batter up to, but not over the top edge of iron.
Lower gently into hot oil and fry until golden brown.
Remove rosette from oil, loosen from iron and drain on paper towels.
Rosettes will keep fresh and crisp for several weeks if stored in airtight container.
Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
