Have you ever had an entire box of corn flakes in your cupboard being of no one's interest? I have! Here you are these Corn Flakes Cookies, made exactly with corn flakes. They are a very optimal solution!
In Italy we call them Desert Roses, have they got a particular name in your country too? I would like to write it here too so let me know! ;-)
They are very crunchy butter (or margarine) and corn flakes based biscuits. Yummy to chew up in every occasion. For example you can prepare them for your children' school break. I did so and I finally clear the cupboard of the flakes...!
The recipe has been sent by Katia De Girolamo (from Bitritto, South Italy) who wrote: "This is a very close friend of mine's recipe and I've recently prepared them for a pic-nic. It's a very quick and simple cookie....is there a better way of shocking people with simplicity and novelty??????"
