I love these Gluten Free Date Snowball Cookies. They are so easy to prepare and the secret ingredient is Rice Krispies! If you have a gluten free guest or family member coming for the holidays they will be delighted with these delicious cookies.
Date Cookies are a family tradition at our house. My Mom created this recipe by adapting several recipes that she found into her favorite. I love serving them in individual mini cupcake papers as shown above. Perfect for the holidays and festive too!
