Rosettes!  They are Swedish.  I make these around Christmastime.  I 
never really found documentation for working them with dipped irons like 
this but I think Huette has.

 From http://rosetteirons.com/index.html, an guide to the naming of names:

In Spain and Mexico, the pastries are called Buenellos; Scandinavian 
families call them "rosettes", the French call them "Merveille", and in 
Hungary, "roza frank". Even in the United States, we have many different 
names for these cookies. For instance:
Minnesota = Rosette Cookie
Ohio = Sugar Waffle Cookie
Florida = Fried Cookie
New York = Italian Fried Cookie
Maryland = Lace Cookie
Georgia = Elegant Wedding Cookie
Pennsylvania = Festival Sugar Waffle
Indiana = Fair Sugar Waffle
Pukalani, Maui, Hawaii = Chinese pretzels
Philippines = Swedish rosette iron
