Tu BiShvat is coming up soon and it’s time to start thinking about a dessert that incorporates fruits to celebrate the holiday. My recipe for date roll cookies is definitely an easy and yummy option. The filling of the cookies is a date spread and chopped walnuts. Traditionally for Tu BiShvat, you want to use fruits of the 7 species (shivat haminim) so the date spread fits perfectly!

Parve Date Roll Cookies Recipe

The cookies are parve – non dairy and are vegan too so it fits as a perfect dessert for people who are on the vegan diet.

The dough has a neutral vanilla flavor so it's not sweet and not savory. Actually there is no sugar in the cookies at all besides the powdered sugar for a garnish. The cookies are only sweet because of the date filling which makes them a bit healthier too.

The trick for this cookie dough is to use boiling water. When mixed with oil and flour, it creates a very easy to handle dough without cooling it in the fridge and letting the dough rest. This process makes the recipe quicker to whip up and as I mentioned already, it's nondairy dough. So it's even better than a dough made with butter that usually requires cooling time in the fridge.
