Deep-fried cookies? These light, crispy cookies are fried to golden perfection
using a special rosette iron.
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup water or milk
- 1 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour
- Vegetable oil
- Powdered sugar, if desired
Easy Chocolate Glaze, if desired
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- In deep medium bowl, beat granulated sugar, the salt and eggs with electric mixer
on medium speed.
- Beat in 2 tablespoons oil, the water and flour until smooth.
- In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil (2 to 3 inches) to 400 degrees F.
- Heat rosette iron by placing in hot oil 1 minute. Tap excess oil from iron on
paper towels. Dip hot iron into batter just to top edge (don't go over top). Fry
about 30 seconds or until golden brown.
- Immediately remove rosette; invert onto paper towels to cool. (If rosette is
not crisp, batter is too thick; stir in a small amount of water or milk.)
- Heat iron in hot oil and tap on paper towels before making each rosette. (If
iron is not hot enough, batter will not stick.)
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving or drizzle with chocolate glaze.
- To make chocolate glaze, in 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, place chocolate
chips, butter and corn syrup.
- Microwave uncovered on Medium 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate can be stirred
- Drizzle glaze over rosettes.
