Rosette cookies (Swedish Struva, Norwegian Rosettbakkels) are thin, cookie-like fritters made with iron molds that are found in many cultures. The name rosetbakkelser comes from Norwegian. Rosettes are crispy and typified by their lacy pattern. Rosettes are traditionally made during Christmas time. Rosette recipes are popular in the United States among families with Scandinavian ancestry.
They are made using intricately designed rosette irons. The batter is a blend of wheat flour, eggs, sugar and whole milk. The iron has a handle with a bow shape attached to the outermost. The iron is heated to a very high temperature in oil, dipped into the batter, then re-immersed in the hot oil to create a crisp shell around the metal. The iron is lifted from the oil after a short time and the rosette is separated from the iron. Usually, the edges of rosettes are dipped into frosting or sugar.
This type of fritter exists in many cultures and is known as sturvor in Swedish, demir tatlisi in Turkish and chebbak el-janna in Tunisian cuisine. In Afghanistan they are called kulcha-e-panjerei (window biscuits). In South India they are called "Gulabi"(గులాబీ పువ్వులు),achappam in Kerala and achumurukku in Tamilnadu. In Spain they are called flores manchegas ("Manchegan flowers").
