Adventure: Family / Friends Celebrations: Baby Shower! "Rosette" Cookies!

Adult Adventure - ANNOUNCEMENT!

Another Confession from the Life Designing1 Team!


Yes! We are social beasts! We love to laugh!

A Recent Celebration with Friends…..
a Baby Shower!
Friends! Food! Gifts for Baby! How can you not love it!

In preparation of the fun…. to share with friends….

we made some "Rosette" Cookies and they were a hit!
(Made them for a "Marathon" race at Jackson's school this fall and a local chef loved them!)



We thought you may want the recipe!


Rosette Cookies - A "Generation" Family Recipe*

1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg (2 - if a flakier pastry is desired)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour, sifted

oil for frying
Rosette iron
paper towels

Mix the first five ingredients together and then slowly add the flour until the batter is smooth.
Heat enough oil (in a wide pan) to be able to deep fry.

For each rosette follow these instructions:
Dip "batterless" (rosette) iron into the hot oil until the iron is hot.
Dab the iron onto a paper towel - then dip into the batter.
Make certain you --- do not -- go over the top of the iron! It will run the entire batter.
Dip the "battered" iron into the hot oil --- the batter will loosen itself - if you need to, nudge it off with a fork.

When it looks light brown… Turn the Rosette cookie to brown the other side.
When that side is light brown…. remove and drain on paper towels until cool.

Sprinkle with confectioners' / powdered sugar.
Serve! and Enjoy!

We always know when people sample our cookies…….. by the powdered sugar on their shirts! :) Enjoy!
