What is it?

I bought a gadget at a rummage sale. I thought it was a pizzelle iron but it turns out that it's not. The gadget I bought looks more like a branding iron. Anyone have any idea what it is? It is long handled and has a circular end that looks like it is meant to be used in hot oil.

Try googling rosette iron. They come in a bunch of shapes - maybe this is what you have?

Wasn't there some kind of antique that was used to warm drinks? It was heated in a fire and then put in the mug? Tough to say without seeing it.
Take a picture of it and post it in the What's this pic game, lol.

Yup, that's what it is.

This is exactly the type of "cookies?" that it will make. Now does anyone have a recipe or will a pizzelle recipe work?

You are going to love making rosetta's!

Have fun and enjoy.

The only time we were able to enjoy them was Christmas -- and we could not wait.

I also got an iron that makes a little piecrust shaped "cookie". I assume that I can use the same rosetta batter for this application too. Anyone know for sure?

If it's as you have described, I'm almost certain it is a rosette iron. I have one with several "heads" and love it. I haven't made any in quite a while but they're delicious.

I'll look through my recipes and post the one I use. Won't do it until tomorrow. It's been a long, busy day.

I did some Internet surfing and found this set at Amazon. It's similar to what I have, but a little more modern handle device. I also have several different timbale irons. Timbales are awesome for filling with creamy goodness and/or fruit.

Hmmm. Now I want to make rosettes or timbales.
