Rosettes (Dad's Recipe)
3 Cups Flour
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Can (12 ounces) sure fine Evaporated Milk
1 1/2 Can Water
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
Notes: According to dad this makes about 75 small rosettes. So far I have had best results by keeping the oil at about 330-350 degrees. Make sure that you have a thermometer that can measure up to 400 Degrees so you can monitor your oil temperature. If you are using a deep fryer then try to get one that has adjustable temperature settings or you will constantly be plugging and unpluging the fryer to maintain the temperature. for demonstrations of different techniques for making them you can search Youtube for Rosettes. I will add more description to this recipe entry as I figure more out. Updated: 11/14/2014
