New Years & Rosettes

We hung out at my in-laws for New Years Eve (evening) and New Years Day. Elizabeth is doing some quality control on Daddy's new sockets! I think they passed the one-tooth-test!
New Years Eve, we decided to make Rosettes, a Czech pastry. The batter is similar to funnel cake, but much thinner. You dip your irons into hot oil.

Then dip them into the batter.

Then deep-fry.
Fry to a golden color. They just fell off of the irons for us.

After they cool, you dip them into a egg-white/powdered sugar icing. Then let them dry out in a low oven. They are light and crisp and oh, so good! A lot of people dip the iced rosettes into colored, finely ground coconut, but we decided not to and they were just as good!

Yum! I've never seen those before but they look good. (I'd leave off the coconut too.)
