Swedish Christmas Rosettes
Divide this batter in half. Add red food coloring to one half and green to the
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup unsifted flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, combine eggs and milk. With fork or wire whisk, mix well. Stir
in flour, sugar and vanilla extract; blend until smooth. Cover with plastic
wrap. Refrigerate one hour or overnight.
In a 5-quart Dutch oven, heat 2 quarts vegetable oil to 365 degrees F on a candy
thermometer. Attach selected iron to handle. Dip iron into hot oil for 15
seconds; drain slightly on paper towel. Dip lower part of hot iron into batter,
letting excess drip back into bowl. (Do not get batter on top of iron.)
Dip iron into hot oil; as batter becomes cooked, it will loosen and drop into
oil. Cook until golden on one side; turn and cook on other side. Repeat. As
pastries turn golden, remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Pastries may be sprinkled with confectioners' sugar or cinnamon-sugar. Tart
shells may be filled with sweet or savory fillings.
Omit sugar and vanilla extract from basic batter. Add 1 teaspoon dried dillweed
and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
To basic batter add 1/2 teaspoon each ground ginger and ground cinnamon and 1/4
teaspoon ground allspice.
