  • Roll very thin but cut into small circles (2-3 inches diameter). Cut small slits (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch) at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00 positions. Paste three circles together in center using egg white.

  • Fry cookies in hot oil - sides will curl up like a rose. After draining on paper towels, place a small amount of red jelly in the center of each rose and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
