I stayed up last night to finish dozens of these delicate, fried, traditional cookies. Most folks call them "Rosettes" -- we call them "Snowflakes."

After I packed them up in tins, I went to place them on the shelf -- and whoops! One of the tins slipped from my arms and fell -- and the fragile cookies inside broke into hundreds of pieces!

These are both warm and wonderful. Enjoy your Mom's and families visits, Linnie.

Well, that would have been reason enough for me to eat them all right away. They look delicious but how are they done? Are there forms for it?

Oh my gosh! Oh no! Great job on those pieces and now eat them right up!!

Cool picture, Lin. Sorry they broke. Are these the cookies that are done with a kind of iron thingy?

Lorraine said...

Ooh, they look exactly like I remember them!
So sorry about the mishap -- seems like in the holiday rush there's always at least one like this!

...and they became grist for the blog mill, eh? How sad after all that work. Can they be eaten like that or do you have to toss them?
