I told you that we were not impressed with the taste of Resurrection Cookies, although the concept sounded great. However, I was very excited to receive this yummy-looking recipe. My daughters, who are graduates of Family and Consumer Science (which they affectionately call “Roadkill 101″), are looking forward to giving this a try.
Here’s the Resurrection Roll recipe:
One can of crescent rolls
One stick of butter, melted
One package of large marshmallows
Sugar or Splenda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Give each child a crescent dough triangle and a marshmallow. The crescent triangle represents the cloth that Jesus’ body was wrapped in, and the marshmallow represents Jesus. Have each child dip the marshmallow in the melted butter, symbolizing the oils of embalming.
Dip the marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar, which represents the spices used to anoint Jesus’ body.
Wrap the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent by bringing the ends in and fold under to completely seal the marshmallow inside. This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. The oven represents the tomb. Remove from oven; cool slightly.
When the rolls are cooled, the children open their rolls, representing the cloth, and discover that Jesus is no longer there. HE IS RISEN! If you sealed the crescent rolls well, (not like the picture above!) the marshmallow will melt and the roll will be puffed up and empty.
Can’t wait to try them!
