Date Balls كرات التمر

Our challenge for this month is from Iraq.
Iraq is a country bordered by the Emirate of Kuwait in the South and by Saudi Arabia through a desert region to the West. To the North there is also a smaller border with Jordan, and a much longer border with Syria. To the East is a long border with Iran across mountainous terrains.(source).
I wish a happy Ramadan to all our families and friends in Iraq.
Je souhaite un trés bon Ramadan à tout nos familles et nos amis en Irak.

Each month the Walima club, which I am a member of, gives a new recipe challenge.
Our friend Arlette from phoeniciangourmet gave us the choice between 3 different recipes, the first savory dish which is called "Lissan el Kadi ", eggplant wrapped meat, I already posted something similar called Eggplant bolognaise.
The second challenge is "Cardamom cookies", I also have a similar recipe called Vanilla cookies, the one thing different is, instead of cardamom I have used vanilla.
So I decided to make the third recipe " Date balls ". /
