Our little town of Mount Horeb Wisconsin prides itself on the Scandinavian heritage of those who settled it. One of the oldest businesses in town is Schubert's Restaurant, They have the old fashion counter stools and booths, and a bakery showcase that houses their freshly made Norwegian Rosettes. According to Wiki a rosette "a thin, cookie-like deep-fried pastry of Scandinavian origin. They are made using intricately designed irons. 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 immediately removed and the rosette is separated from the iron. Usually, the edges of the rosette are dipped into frosting or sugar."
They are delicate flaky cookies of goodness- especially with powdered sugar sifted over them. So, of course I needed to buy a couple for photograph purposes and then not waste them; so I ate them in the name of our theme of Food.
