Hedgehog Cookies......Gluten Free



You have to make these.  I got the recipe from my sister Mary who makes them for her daughters all the time.  Only five ingredients and your ready to make these little jewels.   I'm embarrassed to say I was a glutton for these gluten free cookies.  Here's the recipe courtesy of my sister and Taste of Home.
  Ingredients
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flaked coconut, divided
  • 1 egg

Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the walnuts, dates and brown sugar.  Add 1/2 cup coconut and egg, mix well.  shape into 1 in. balls and roll in remaining coconut. (I used my food processor to chop everything individually and then mixed it all in a bowl.)  
  2. place on greased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 13 minutes or until lightly brown.  Cool on wire racks.  makes about 1 1/2 dozens cookies.   Enjoy!

  8. These look sooooo good! Your photographic images are fantastic, do you take the photos? What kind of camera/lenses do you use?

  9. Thank you for the compliment. I take all the photos myself with the ordinary lens that came with my camera. I have a Fuji camera that is around 8 years old.

  11. Oh, what lovely little bites! We make a cookie that's similar at Christmas time to include in the gift boxes for neighbors and friends ... so rich and delicious! Yours are much healthier than my recipe, as mine have a ton of butter too ...
