Gluten Free Frying Pan Cookies
These gluten free frying pan cookies are the perfect addition to your dessert tray. They are so easy and require NO BAKING! This recipe has been in our family for years and one of my favorite holiday treats. The rice cereal adds the perfect crunch, filled with dates, cherries and walnuts creating the most amazing flavors, then rolled in coconut to create the perfect treat. The best part is how simple these are and how decadent they look and taste. I hope you enjoy!
