Norwegian/Swedish Cookies

  1. Does anyone know the names of two types of Norwegian and/or Swedish cookies?

    The first one looks like a small funnel cake. It's made by dipping an object that can best be described as a branding iron in the shape of an open rose into batter, deep-fat frying until it becomes a light brown (like a french fry) and then springled with sugar. Possibly called a rosetta?????

    The second cookie is a light sweet dough rolled around a metal cylinder about 1" in diamater. This one is baked. The name krumkakka (? spelling) comes to mind on this one.

    (Note: for all you mom's out there, this is a good example why you need to write all the family recipes down while you can remember them and are able to do so. Wish my mom had done that for me, or maybe I wish I had asked when I had the chance.)

    "The Rolling Pin" chain of stores sometimes carry the irons for making Rosette cookies. But there are only a couple of suppliers for them.

    I have some of the irons - but lost a bunch of them with Hebrew symbols (Chanukah, Purim, etc.) Anyone have any ideas on how to acquire such as those.

    Real great cookies for brunches/showers and to make with children. Some irons can be used to make pastry shells.
