Corn Flakes Cookies: How to Make Them with Thermomix


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 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...!


- 150 g sugar
- One lemon (zest)
- 150 g soft butter
- 300 g plain flour
- 2 eggs
- A tsp baking powder
- Corn flakes to taste (about 1/2 bag)
- Powdered sugar to taste

Let's cook

Put 150 g sugar and the zest of one lemon into the mixing bowl. Pulverizes 30 Sec. Speed 10.

Add 150 g soft butter, 300 g plain flour, 2 eggs, a tsp of baking powder and mix 30 Sec. Speed 4.

Transfer to a bowl and let it cool for 10 Min. in the refrigerator.

Turn on the oven at 180C.

Pour the corn flakes into a large bowl, pick up a knob of the mixture with a spoon and roll it into the corn flakes.

Take the ball with your hands and make the corn flakes stick well to the mixture by pressing a little.

Place them gradually on a plate lined with baking paper.

Repeat until you finish the mixture.

Bake for 15 Min. 180C.

Let cool and sprinkle with icing sugar.


Melt chocolate with Thermomix and pour it on the cookies, they'll get more yummy!

As Carmel West suggests: "These biscuits are even better with sultanas added to the mix before rolling".
