Gluten Free Teatime Dessert Recipes

Readers of this blog know I have been Gluten Free on February 15, 2013.
Our daughter, Melissa, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease three years ago. 
 My lab work was negative for Celiac, but my health, and my life,
have improved tremendously since going Gluten Free. 
Celiac?  Gluten intolerance? It doesn't matter. 
 My health has improved compared to before.
My high Triglycerides dropped in half, I lost 13 pounds,
my sinus headaches stopped, no more acid reflux,
no more digestive issues,
and I have so much more energy! 
To make this afternoon tea more enjoyable for Melissa and me,
I planned three gluten free sweets to be served.  
Gluten Free Rice Krispies Date Balls
Alice's Fudge
Lucy's Gluten Free Sugar Cookies Dipped in White Chocolate and Peppermint
Melissa made these treats with Lucy's Gluten Free Sugar Cookies.
I was surprised that everyone loved them, even the guys in the family.
The candy coating and peppermint really added to the cookie
to make it more pleasant for the non GF family and guests. 
 I made Date Balls using  GF Rice Krispies.
Linda's Gluten Free Rice Krispies Balls

1 (8 ounce) package dates, pitted, hand chopped
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
1 egg, beaten
½ cup chopped pecans
2 cups grated coconut
2 cups gluten free Rice Krispies
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered Sugar

Combine dates, sugar, beaten egg and butter. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add pecans, coconut, vanilla and Rice Krispies. Stir until blended, and cool slightly. Form into 1-inch balls with greased hands, and roll each in powdered sugar to coat. Chill before serving and store in refrigerator.
