Gluten-Free Rosettes - A Scandinavian Tradition

By December 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Gluten-Free Rosettes Rosettes are small Scandinavian deep-fried pastries made using a "rosette iron" - a unique gadget that comes with a variety of interchangeable metal decorative shapes. Rosette irons are usually available at specialty cookware shops, Scandinavian shops and of course, online.

Rosette batter is a lot like pancake batter. It's not overly sweet and gluten-free rosette batter is very easy to prepare by simply substituting a basic gluten-free all purpose flour for the wheat flour used in traditional rosette recipes. I didn't add any gum because I wanted my rosettes to be crispy, and they were.

Last Christmas my energetic, tradition-loving father-in-law and I spent about an hour in front of my stove making gluten-free rosettes. It was a learning experience for me because I'm not much of a deep-fry cook. Before attempting to make your own piled-high plate of golden crispy gluten-free rosettes I highly recommend that you read this article - "Rosette Tools - Tips for Using Rosette and Timbale Tools to Make Crisp Cookies" by our About.com Housewares / Appliances Guide. She offers up lots of great tips that will help you avoid some of the mistakes I made when tackling my first batch of Christmas rosettes.

The batter can be prepared several hours or up to a day before using and rosettes can be made and frozen for several weeks before sharing.

function poorly and decrease your metabolism.
