I love Rosettes. I lost my recipe and found this one. (Thank you for posting it and thank you RecipeZaar!) I am sure it is the one I have used many times, years ago. It was such fun making these. It took me at least 2 hours to do them all. It made a full large tin. It had been so many years since I had made them, that it took me a while to get the temperature just right, but after that, it was a breeze. Except for the first 3, they turned out perfectly. I particularly liked the detailed instructions. I dusted them with confectioners sugar as I have done in the past, and then decided to try the raspberry jam. Yummmmmm! I could not resist taking that final picture, to show they were not poison. I believe the raspberry jam should be done close to eating, as they could get soggy. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

My mother-in-law used to make these over 20 years ago when I first met my husband. I just inherited her rosette irons & needed a recipe that explained how to make them. Thank you! They are wonderful. BTW, rosenkuchen is a Danish filled with any number of ingredients including hazelnut, custard, nuts, raisins, etc. We used to buy similar Danish in Solvang at the Mortensen's Bakery & they called it "Butter Ring". Delicious stuff.

These are also called Rosenkuchen and are a favorite in German cooking.

I was able to try this delightful treats this evening at Chef #115302's home. They were delicate and delicious! My mom used to make them when I was very small and they brought back a lot of good memories. Thank you!! :)

Wow! These are amazing to eat and super fun to make. I also used vanilla instead of lemon extract and mine only took 25-30 second to brown. They were very delicate and delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

These are great. My late mother made thousands of rosettes over the years as this is the same recipe she used. She did use vanilla instead of the lemon extract.

These are wonderful. I made a powdered sugar icing and dipped the edges of the rosettes instead of using the plain powdered sugar... it tasted wonderful and was less messy for the kids.
