DIRECTIONS

  • Beat the eggs and the egg yolks together.
  • Beat in the sugar, butter and salt.
  • add enough flour to make medium soft dough that is easy to handle.
  • Knead lightly in the bowl to incorporate the flour.
  • Cover and let the dough stand for 10 minutes.
  • Roll very thin, about 1/8 inch or thinner, using a small amount of dough at a time.
  • Cut into circles with small cooky cutters of two different sizes, about 1 1/2 and 1 inch in diameter.
  • Place 2 circles of the same size one over the other, and top them with a smaller circle.
  • Press the centers together tightly with the blunt button point of a knitting needle, or with a finger tip.
  • The knitting needle is preferred as the finger tip leaves a large depression, making the fried rosettes hard in the center.
  • Make 5 even slits on the outer edge of the circles to form petals.
  • These petals will curl up in frying, giving a rosette shape.
  • Fry, a few at a time, in deep fat (375 degrees F) until delicately browned.
  • Drain on absorbent paper.
  • sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar.
  • Just before serving, place the candied cherry, cut in half, or a dab of red jelly, in the hollow of each rosette.
