Gluten-Free Apple Date Cookies

I don’t often post recipes for sweets, but I know many of us “need” them every now and then.  I am more of a ‘sweets only for special occasions’ kind of girl.  Easter is coming up soon, so I am looking at sweets recipes to take to the Easter family gathering.  My sweets are always gluten-free, and I prefer to use natural sweeteners.  green apple

I came across this gluten-free cookie recipe, and it sounds pretty good to me.  *I haven’t made it.
